Daily Dose—WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Posted by

What do you have? Create something positive from it! Whatever you have, someone somewhere has less but has created more from it. No matter what you have in your life—positives, negatives, weaknesses, strengths, riches, or poverty—you can create something positive from it. Even if it is just facial muscles to form a smile, vocal cords to say thank you, hands to open a door—you have something from which to create from. Appreciate all that you have to create from! Are you alive? Others aren’t. Do you have the full use of your legs? Others don’t. Do you have your sight? Others don’t. Do you have wifi? Others don’t. Do you have something to eat today?...

DAILY DOSE—REVIEW & REVISE

DAILY DOSE—REVIEW & REVISE

 TAKE AN HONEST LOOK (and get real!)   Creating from what you have includes the accumulated results of your daily, monthly, yearly actions, habits, thoughts and beliefs.  Be honest with yourself and take a long hard look at the past year. What worked? What didn’t? Where did you succeed? Where did you fail? What got done? What didn’t? Are you healthier as the year closes than when it began? Are you more financially secure? Less? Did you create what you set out to create? Did you simply talk about it or did you take action? Review what went down, what was thought, what was believed, what was achieved, over the last 12 months and revise your goals, your intentions,...

Daily Dose—BEGIN!

Posted by

    What is in you? Bring it forth! Everyone has something inside them they’re dreaming to create—a song, a dance, a cake, an idea, a company, a school, a book, a building, a dream, a film, a story, a savings, a family, an education, an adventure, a home.  What creation is inside of you?  And what would happen if you simply started working on it?  Quietly, consistently, gently giving it attention, energy and action?  It doesn’t have to be some big drama or proclamation.  It can simply be an internal shift, a clear decision, a meaningful step in the direction of your dream. Write the first sentence. Make the appointment. Buy the ingredients. Turn on the music....

A Battered Dream

A Battered Dream

My head has been in dreams since yesterday afternoon when I went to the post office and there was a lone dream in the box.  Lined, frayed and battered, it looked like it had made a long, hard journey.  Which, considering its softness, I suspect involved going through the wash! It’s appearance, more than the actual scrawled dream on the front, deeply impacted me.  It’s our dreams, those precious, secret wishes, longings, hopes, aspirations, that take the brunt of our abuse from insecurity, loss, rejection, fear, disappointment, doubt, hurt.  You name it, they take it.  How battered are our dreams?! Last night, I posted the featured dream of the week…not...

Daily Dose—TRY SOMETHING NEW

Posted by

Stuck? Shake things up!   Routines can be wonderful in life. Brushing your teeth.  Working out. Meditation.   Schedules.  But what happens when you are stuck in your creative work?  Feeling uninspired?  Bored?  Blank?  Shake it up!  Change how you approach it, how you do it, what you do during the time you have scheduled for it!  Instead of writing in the exact same spot, go to the library or a coffee shop or the beach.  Change the view!  Instead of creating in the exact same way, do something different. Instead of typing on your computer, hand-write a scene.  Instead of directing a film, direct a play.  Instead of acting, write some original material for yourself....

Daily Dose—HERE AND NOW

  Procrastinating?   STOP! …just go and do it already.     Instead of fretting over how long you’ve been procrastinating on something and thus procrastinating even longer, just stop and go do it already!  Whatever the hell it is—the dishes, your homework, the laundry, the phone call, the email, signing up for the class, breaking up with him, the first work out, buying the domain name—just start doing it!  It’ll be done before you know it.  And who knows what doing it will do to your mood, your energy, your outlook?  It may revitalize you.  It may motivate you.  It may relax you.  It may inspire you.   You won’t know until you… STOP...

Daily Dose—DO SOMETHING!

Posted by

  WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO REACH YOUR GOALS?   Do something!   Everyone has a goal in their mind, probably right this second—big, small, meaningful, shallow.  It could be as simple as, “don’t forget to floss.”  It could be as colossal as, “change the world.”  It could be as existential as, “beat cancer.”  It could be as superficial as, “try Botox.”  (Don’t judge it.  If it matters to you, that’s all that matters!)  Whatever your goal is, what are you actually doing—physically, mentally, emotionally, tangibly—to reach it?  If your goal is to lose weight, have you asked for help, started a work out routine, implemented a nutrition plan?  If...
