What does this speak to YOUR LIFE?
Spend more time with family? Not just planning but making reservations for that special vacation? Getting started on that book that you've always wanted to write? Start the book club that you've talked about numerous times? Coach the basketball or baseball league? Getting connected and supporting the Non-Profit Organization that supports children. . supports seniors? Start that Home Based Business with the name that you've doodled on every sheet of paper you can find? Become a consultant in the area that you know and are passionate about? Share your expertise and mentor all those who seek the path you've already travelled? Assist those who are hurting in areas that you've walked through as a survivor, a conqueror, it could be, helping those who are grieving the unexpected loss of a loved one, someone fighting a disease, someone who has lost a business or a job they loved?
THE LIST IS ENDLESS. . . .
It is so easy to get encapsulated into rubbing our own wounds, focused on our own needs or desires. . .but the greatest medicine is when we can pour into the lives of others. When we can understand no matter the challenge there is someone, somewhere with a greater challenge.
The power is the perception, the perception to see that GLASS on the table "Half Full". . .to figure out that there is a lesson, an empowerment born out of what life has dished out on our plate. We are really more connected than we often share, if we shared our life's notes; the pain, the challenges, the questions, the concerns would be very similar.
The pain shared behind the smile would be a revelation of the things that we are all connected to and or experience in our daily life's journey.
This is a spotlight, a Megaphone shout out Message to say:
If Not NOW. . .WHEN?
Not after you retire, not when the kids are grown, or you have a certain amount in the bank and or invested, not when that business is a million dollar producer.
The power of NOW, getting it going NOW. No matter where you are in life, just out of college or trade school, RETIRED, as if that means preparing to die (NOT, it is a new beginning, A New Chapter to write, a capsule of wisdom to pass along to future generations), just married or a family of five, single, employed and or seeking employment, YOU have an Unique Fingerprint, a Special Message that only you can share and You have a reach in your community, on your facebook, by your twitter and or by your associations, organizations, WITHIN the circle of your OWN family and CIRCLE of friends. . .a fingerprint, a voice that only you can provide, that only you can deliver by Your Wisdom, by Your Experience wrapped in your own view for others to ponder and to find the treasure from that empowers the journey.
DEAR FRIEND. . . .
IF NOT NOW. . .WHEN?
