reACTion to reACT

Holy-Mole-6

When we commit to action, to actually doing something rather than feeling trapped by events, the stress becomes manageable. 

~Greg Anderson

Today I just so happen to catch the end of Steve Harvey’s new talk show while eating lunch at work.  He was closing the show with some inspirational words.  He was sharing with us a few quotes that he lives by and one quote stuck out and stayed with me for the duration of my day….. 

“Be about the Business of doing something about it” 

We can’t just expect things to always just fall into place.  We have to actually get up and do something in order to be where we want to be.  Action=Success, so let’s get Active!!!

“Birds flying high

You know how I feel

Sun in the sky

You know how I feel

Breeze drifting on by

You know how I feel

It’s a New day

And I’m feeling good!”

~Jennifer Hudson’s “Feeling Good”~

What a great start to the beginning of an eventful New Year.  A New Year and another chance to begin again.  The slate has been wiped clean, so let’s begin!

First off…..did you check out lovebugsworld new theme!!!  I am so excited because usually my theme involves the inner creativity in me and this new theme is not short of my artistic nature, but it also has meaning.  For weeks I have been dreaming here and there of released balloons and today I decided to do some research on the meaning.  Here’s what I found…..

~People release balloons at Weddings, Funerals, or for personal meaning.  We can view them as a release of grief, a celebration of life, filled with messages, notes of remembrance, poems, etc.  They can also be filled with flower seeds or even bird seeds.

What I also found is that releasing balloons can be harmful.  To our animals and of course when they do come down, it’s littering.  So instead of releasing an actual balloon, let’s release it in spirit.  Let’s vow to let go of anything that will keep us from moving forward into the divined walk that God has placed us here for.

As for why I have been dreaming about Balloons….the only thing I can come up with is because I am embarking on new things in my life.  Transitioning into the next stage of my life.  And I welcome it with open arms!!  I also embrace Change because it is only to make me better!

Eight Balloons

Eight balloons no one was buyin’

All broke loose one afternoon.

Eight balloons with strings a-flyin’,

Free to do what they wanted to.

One flew up to touch the sun – POP!

One thought highways might be fun – POP!

One took a nap in a cactus pile – POP!

One stayed to play with a careless child – POP!

One tried to taste some bacon fryin’ – POP!

One fell in love with a porcupine – POP!

One looked close in a crocodile’s mouth – POP!

One sat around ’til his air ran out – WHOOSH!

Eight balloons no one was buyin’ -

They broke loose and away they flew,

Free to float and free to fly

And free to pop where they wanted to.

My challenge for you for 2013 is to do exactly what it is that elevates you to the next level.  Mentally, Physically, Financially, even Emotionally, and most definitely Spiritually.

Even though it is almost 30 days into the New Year…..Happy New Year from Lovebugsworld to your world!  Stay Tuned…….

On a Quest to Find Success

My idea of success is achieving my sought out dreams.  Walt Disney said it is best, “If you Dream it then you can Achieve it.”  What are some of my dreams?  I want to publish books….three of which I have already began or at least have laid the blueprints.  I want to be able to own a Publishing Company along with my husband dliteraryprescription.wordpress.com. (Yes, he writes as well)  I want to one day open up a Performing Arts School that is filled with Creative Writing, Graphic Design, Animation, Fashion, Photography, Culinary Arts, Interior Decorating, Dance, Music, etc.  I want to be able to give a child a chance to tap into their talents earlier on so that they find their talents sooner rather than later….why wait until you go to college?  They can earn credits early.  Are these dreams or goals hard to achieve….NO!!  Success starts off as a dream or a personal short-term or long-term goal and how you arrive at it, starts with You!  Our attitudes are just as important as our ability to get things done.  So, excuse me while I continue on my Journey toward my Quest for Success……

Have you began your Quest?

I Believe……

The harder I push to succeed the more I know I will achieve! It takes a whole lot of action to reach the top and the first steps involve believing. I am headed to the top through prayer, believing, faith, grace, mercy, and hard work!!!!

“I believe in the impossible
If I reach deep within my heart
Overcome any obstacle
Won’t let this dream fall apart
See I strive to be the very best
Shine my light for all to see
Cause anything is possible
When you believe….”
