IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE ME HAPPY. A flickering candle, smoldering incense. Delicious food. Good wine. Honorable, passionate people. Dazzling sunsets. Enchanting moonbeams. A sensuous life. Perfect espresso to make the perfect cappuccino. For readers to love my books.

Okay, maybe I need to rephrase that opening thought. New opening thought: I AIM HIGH.

Ready To Start? {thinking & really living...}

Hey, kid.  Let's spin one of my favorite tracks for this chat.  Go ahead and press play now, if you wanna.  Y'all set?  Good.  C'mere, sweetie.  Some things I've been meaning to talk to you about.  A few things I know tonight, and I gotta share.


{ 1 }    Default human nature is a funky thing.  Not always pretty and often lacking in common courtesy.  I've noticed the things (a lot of) people do in unguarded moments, as opposed to what they do when they've a chance to think about or calculate their words or actions.  We gotta change this in our own lives, right now.  We gotta start treating people - those we meet every day, on our regular grind - exactly the way we want to be treated.  This is only right.  And we know it.  So now, we gotta act on it.  And you gotta help me spread the word.

{  2  }     Lots of folks are all too willing to accept help or support... but they don't necessarily step up to give it.  We gotta let that be okay.  We just gotta make silent note of this when it happens, but nothing more; we gotta carry on.  And we have to continue being that girl ~ or that guy...  the one who speaks up, steps up, lends a hand or reaches out.  Not because others do it for us.  Not because we want to create markers we can call in, in the future.  But because it's who we are... simple as that.  And that'll free up space in our heart for more love.  Say it with me: more love.

{  3  }     Man oh man, people love to meddle in the affairs of others.  Especially when it comes to loved ones.  But folks may not always have your best interest at heart.  And though they love you, they may be drawing from their own experience... or their own idea of what's good for you, instead of actually considering who you are... where you're at... and the fact that you get to choose your own path and life.  Because, after all, that's what life is for: living.  On your own.  Of your own accord.  Making mistakes, figuring stuff out, and finally arriving at that place where you've the courage to own who you are, and be true to yourself.  So keep that in mind, love: the best advice may not be the best advice for you.  Let your inner compass decide.

{  4  }     Where your heart and mind go in the wee small hours, is where you need to be.  There's your home; there's your true north.  See baby, we were all born with a cool little gadget inside of us (Ahhh, you thought I was gonna start talking about the pineal gland!  Haha, that's another bloggy for another day!)  Tonight I'm talking about your inner compass... the one that always guides you in the right direction.  If you have to think too much about it, it's usually not right.  If you have to rationalize it and take it apart, it's probably not for you.  All you need to pay attention to is that place your heart goes in the wee, small hours.  There, you'll always, always find the answer.  The only answer you need.  You can apply this to your vocation, your calling, the love of your life.

And that's all I got for tonight.  On this subject matter, anyway.  *wink*

On to other things.  Ready to start?
