Don't live a life that's smaller than you are.

How much time during your day do you spend being you?

Yeah, yeah, I know you just smiled and shouted '24 hours a day!' or some-such, but now let's go back and be honest with ourselves, shall we?

How much time during your day do you spend time doing what you do best, what you love, what exemplifies who you really are?

Ooohhhh, why didn't I saaaay so?


How much time do you spend being you... or being what someone else wants you to be? Or what you think you ought to be? Or what you need to do so that 'someday' (maybe... hopefully) you can finally get to LIVE?

Do you remember what it was like when your dreams were as big as the world around you? When everything in front of you was ripe with unlimited possibilities?

You didn't fill it up with so much 'other stuff' that there's no room left for YOU... did you?

Well, don't worry. Life is more like a balloon than a bowl (cherries not withstanding). It expands the more you put into it.

So go ahead, fill your life up with YOU. Do more of what you love and love more of what you do. Your life can handle it.

It doesn't have to be a small world after all.

Keep the light on!
