This morning I was not sure what I would write about in my daily Secret, so I did my usual Twitter cruising. I find sitting with my laptop, meeting new followers, and discovering a few new interesting people to be an excellent way to make the transition from sleep to wakefulness. So, as soon as my morning meditation is over, I dive into the alternative realm of Twitter. I can honestly say I love this time. It is so fun to meet new people in all parts of the world, to rejoice in our similarities, and to learn from our differences.
Anyway as I was checking out some new followers I saw a picture of a lady holding a sign in some major metropolitan area :
And I realized that I had found this morning’s secret. You may be able to read the picture above, but I am going to reprint what it says anyway. I will not attempt to recreate the graphical display, but the words are what I find so insightful.
This is your LIFE.
Do what you love and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, STOP.
They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over analyzing.
Life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people.
We are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often, getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once. Seek them.
Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them.
So go out and start creating.
Life is short.
Live your dream and share your passion.
I am not sure who the original author was, but I found it here.
I love this. It would be great fun to hold this sign on a busy street and see how many people would allow for the time to stop, read, and consider the wisdom contained here.
I am thankful for reminders, like this, which I seem to find everywhere I look.
I am thankful for Twitter. It is such a fun place to share our hopes and dreams.
Finally, I am thankful for all the beautiful expressions of Light and Love which populate Twitter, Facebook, and any other venue where people gather to share what is important to them.
Together we make life infinitely more fun.
