WHAT NEEDS ATTENTION?

And better than ever before, you understand how fabulous you are, as you realize vulnerable doesn’t mean powerless, scared doesn’t mean lacking in beauty, and uncertainty doesn’t mean that you’re lost.
These realizations alone will set you on a journey that will take you far beyond what you used to think of as extraordinary.

“All religion, all life, all art, all expression come down to this: to the effort of the human soul to break through its barrier of loneliness, of intolerable loneliness, and make some contact with another seeking soul, or with what all souls seek, which is (by any name) God.”
-Don Marquis (1878-1937)
Yes! Our connection with one another is there, and we are seeking to experience it. And by experiencing our connection with one another, we can experience our connection with God. God expresses through each one of us. Do we notice? Are we listening? Each person we come into contact with has something for us, some piece of the puzzle large or small. We are searching for ourselves, so why don’t we make it easier and stop hiding from ourselves?

Little or nothing will slow you down or be daunting to you today. You have so much inner strength, and physical strength, too, that people will have trouble keeping up with you. Do something special today, or perhaps excel at something significant and challenging that will be easily within your grasp. You may find out later that you were dazzling and that you inspired several people to more energetically pursue their passions
