You know you have a calling when you’re still up at 12:55 a.m. blogging and writing…after a full day of driving around doing errands and cooking! Whew! It’s been way too long since my last blog…I can make all the excuses in the world, like the lack of high speed internet and a desktop computer to which I was accustomed up until 9 months ago…but NO MORE EXCUSES!!
I think all the signs are there…I’ve been meeting lots of interesting people all year (in fact for the past few years) and I believe it’s time to start the ball a-rolling and make a more meaningful impact on lives.
I’ve been checking my mail and social networks tonight and I am soo inspired by the persons around me…some friends and others…total strangers. You have goaded me into action guys…I hope you know who you are! Many things are happening and I believe it’s time…of course it doesn’t happen overnight or by wishing on a star…I’ve gotta start mobilizing dreams into reality…less talk and more action.
I’ve been toying with some plans for a while now…and for some reason, I’m wondering why I’m hesitant for the first time in a long time to get moving. I just saw an email tonight coupled with conversations I’ve had this week with a close friend and one with an acquaintance with whom I was finally able to match a face, and it’s as though it lit a fire under me…It’s kinda like that famous song by the Isley Brothers…”I’ve got work to do!” Indeed I DO HAVE WORK TO DO!!!
Someone reminded me that time flies away in the blink of an eye and before you can say Jack Robinson…eons have passed and you don’t know how you got there. And so I made a mental note that kicked in 24 hours later, that I’ve got to get down to the business of the day…and live my purpose before I leave this earth. Tomorrow is promised to no one, so now is the time to live your dreams and leave your mark…your legacy on the world. Perhaps not in BIG ways ALL the time, but surely via your daily routine.
I know my worth is more than an 8-4 corporate job. My life should impact others in a profound way beyond the exigencies of a rigid job description. Meanwhile I do love my job and do it to the best of my abilities, but the work of an artiste is never enough and never done. I’ve been getting distracted from my purpose and it’s time to get focused. I have all the resources and right people around me to make it happen…so as it is said…so it shall be…
After watching Ms. World tonight on Direct TV (luckily not in Spanish) though a bit distracted, I realized that beauty pageants aren’t all fickle and airy fairy. Whilst listening to some of these girls I realized that I have something in common with them: their quest to serve humanity and impact the lives of others. I guess it is “Beauty with a Purpose.” My favourite contender was Ms. France…but Ms. Philippines you are well deserving of the crown. Congrats to you! May you do your country proud…oh and continue to SING!
Until next time. Hopefully next time I blog, I would have some good news to announce.
Good night or good morning my lovelies…
As always I thank you for dropping by…do tell your friends about my blog and check out my book Thinking out Loud on amazon and facebook page for more >>https://www.facebook.com/ThinkingoutLoudbyCarolynCorreia
I remain grateful for life, family and great people…thank God I can sleep in today…and I don’t have to [finish] cook lunch…it seems that I’d be going to a poolside barbeque lime and football game later on…I love nothing better…(besides maybe if I can write from the pool:)
Till next time…
Peace & Love,
