They say you should put your intentions out there, and not to be afraid to claim what is rightfully yours. For a while I simply didn’t have the energy to do this. But now I’m coming into the light out of the dark, my energy has returned and it feels Beyond glorious. And so with new enthusiasm and energy and faith and sense of wonder and curiosity, I’m here to claim what is mine. Because what is mine is here for the taking.
And what is mine is a wonderful fulfilling career of writing. Not just of writing for corporations and projects that I find interesting. Before writing my books and for my own personal satisfaction. My writing is for inspiring and encouraging others in their daily life and struggles. For those who are trying to get through things that they don’t discuss, or for relationship issues, or for grief of losing a loved one. My writing career is mine for the taking, for making people think, and set goals, and smile, and discuss.
And what is mine for the taking, is a wonderful harmonious happy household full of laughter and discussion and smiles. It is a home filled with wonderful memories of friends, and loved ones, and those wonderful delicious delicate moments that make worth life living.
What is mine for the taking is a wonderful amazing romantic partner who is both passionate and Incredibly kind. Compassion, and empathy, and integrity, and kindness are abundant. And what is mine for the taking is holding hands and discussing dreams and discussing heartaches and sharing life. What is mine for the taking if someone who will support me and take care of me just as I support and take care of them. A mutually beneficial and kind relationship.
What is mine for the taking is Adventure and fun. I am no longer satisfied with playing it safe in the safe places. I want to go and grow and explore and seek. I want to see the world and talk to people and find out about all the things of which I am curious. I want to learn and share ideas.
What is mine for the taking is the energy for this life that I have been blessed with and will create even more. What is mine for the taking is all the love that I have to offer to others, being returned to me as well. And through faith and hard work, and the amazing Miracle of God’s grace, these things are mine, will be mine, and this life will blossom.
But how exactly do we do this? How do we turn our lives from the drab and mundane, into the beautiful & fabulous? I don’t know, but I have an idea. I think that the secret lies in finding the fun and adventure in the everyday. I know it sounds silly, maybe even impossible, but I truly think it can be done. The big things in the big events that make our life spectacular don’t happen that often. So if we wait on all the big events to happen before we can be happy or initiate change, we’re going to be miserable and waiting a long time. So we have to make sure that we enjoy every single moment of every single day to the absolute fullest. And that means creating adventure and fun where maybe others can’t see it.
We’re in the middle of summer, it’s the perfect time to roll your windows down and crank the radio up and sing at the top of your lungs. Who cares what the next driver thinks of you or if they look at you like you’re an alien? They only wish they were having this much fun driving around in the traffic. And who would have ever thought driving would be so much fun? But we can make it an adventure if you choose. Or how about the next time it rains? Look for the rainbow, or actually step out in the rain and enjoy feeling the cool raindrops against your skin as the precipitation washes away all the debris from your soul. We can find magic in the ordinary if we’re only willing to close our eyes and see it and look for it.
Life is short, and what is abundantly clear is that whatever it is you are looking for is what you will find. So you might as well look for things that will make you happy and sustain a beautiful life. Life is too short to be miserable, so you might as well have fun in Adventures along the way. Don’t get me wrong, no matter how hard we try there will always be some drama and some hardships, but that’s not what life is about. And if we pray and have faith and work hard and believe, we can make our lives the beautiful, marvelous, complex novels they were meant to be.
So don’t be afraid to claim what is yours in Life, or whatever it is you want. There’s no shortage, so there’s plenty for everyone. And it’s just they’re waiting for you, your dreams and your passion are the only boundaries that exist. So go on, claim your treasure, claim what is yours. After all it is yours for the taking, this life which we have been blessed to have.
