Awaken Your Day - Aug 2, 2011 - Renovations are not all Paint and Nails

" Every man is the architect of his own fortune."
- Sallust, 86B.C. to 34 B.C.

Today it is my intension to sign up for a class, and go back to school.  An educational facility.
I realized that while I desire to build the stairway to my dreams, I may need a foundation upon which to build my platform.  To reach for the stars, I know I need that little bit extra under my feet.

So, with that in mind, I came to understand that I want to do some renovations.  Adding a room you might say.  Knock down a wall or two that I probably was unaware that I had built ... but can now see them as obstacles in my way.  Good thing I was not a good carpenter, or these walls ( sometimes knows as fears or emotional barriers...paradigms...habits...rake on the lawn with the tines sticking up...)  well, then these walls would not be so easy to tear down.

I have a plan.  I did not have one before, and so the idea of self renovations was rather intimidating.  Renovations can sometimes paint a "words not required" picture that something is old, or worn out...or maybe even broke.  And then, it may feel hard to get excited over the idea now appearing to be a depressing chore. 

I need a renovation.  Not my life, just me.  Not a rebuild, just an addition.  I did a little research, skipped the page of self doubt because the fine print on that page is horrible on the heart...and I am glad to say, I have a blueprint for a successful addition.

Addition.  Not that scary, not "Change"... but a pleasant, refreshing, foundation assisting Addition.

Who knew I had in me?
How about you....anything you were curious to add on to your glowing personality?  A skill, or an experience; an adventure or just a dream that needs to be dusted off?

Renovations ... and look at that, they signed my name on the drawings.

Good Morning.
