Awaken Your Day - February 19, 2008

“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.”- Oprah Winfrey

How I wish someone would have sat me down in my youth, and explained this to me. That I could have started this journey sooner.
Sounds like Reach.

When I grew up, there were no heros.
I had no one around me that drove home the value of setting goals.
Of trying big new things.
Reaching for what was seemingly beyond my grasp.

I do now.

In my role models I saw survivors, but I did not see what it meant to dream.
To chase something you were passionate for.
To believe in yourself.
To believe in yourself so much, that you went for more than just survival.

I do now.

Survival. I wish I may I wish I might. I wish.
Survival. Like maybe tomorrow I hope that the boss notices me.
Survival. Like, you know, things are really kind of tough right now, and uh, when next week comes around, it will be better…things will be different. Something will change. No really… really.
Survival. As in I have no idea what will come to me or what I can do about it, but I sure hope it gets better, and I am going to sit here and wait for “better” to just fall into my lap.
Survival. Like paycheque to paycheque.

“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.”

I spent a lifetime waiting.
Waiting for life to show me Easy.
I wanted the Cheat Sheet.
Point A to point B for Dummies.
The quickest route between two points is a straight line
– and someone else was just going to take me there or at least draw it for me.
Because, well, it didn’t dawn on me that if I just put in a bit of effort…

It has now.

I gave away many priceless days of life…Waiting.
Personal Evolution comes with a price. Personal investment.
To grow, you must invest. In you.
In anything you become good at, or more knowledgeable about, you must invest of yourself.


Open Your Mind.

Somehow, it appeared I had finally paid the fare. Life came around and I began to Create something.
It felt good. I tasted some success.
But when I did, a funny thing happened.
I sat back and started Waiting again.
I thought life was going to throw a parade with everyone yelling “Hoorah! Look what you did!”
Not quite.

Part of evolving is constantly being open to learning.
I am not yet, the complete person I am meant to be.
I put my evolution on hold to kick it and enjoy the calm of surviving.
Surviving, turned out to be a whole lot harder than trying.
Sound familiar?

Now, I have seen what a day of personal evolution is worth.
I caught a good glimpse of what I am meant to be.
I have given away too many days without demanding anything in return.
Today, I step forward to collect a debt I owe to my success.

What are you willing to do to grow toward your personal success?
What is a day of your life worth, on the journey to becoming all you were intended to be?

Are you giving away a day - of your most treasured non-renewable resource, and asking nothing in return?
Are you waiting? Or are you Creating?

You, the artist, have the clay.
Good morning.
