#Awake

#Awake

Come alive and let your humble and grateful spirit soar to new heights – heights you are so capable of.

Beginning today, and for every single day forward, live in an awakened state.

Slay the daemons telling you you can’t or you don’t deserve it.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

i am a wretch

Nature trail
From a Florida Zoo, mercy and kindness extended to a tree.

 

i am a wretch.

Even though i thought i was ‘good’.

So on April Fool’s Day 2009 i began the day on my knees, saying three special prayers.

  1. The Lord’s Prayer
  2. Hail Mary
  3. A special prayer i created as an extension of “saying Grace”

This is, coincidently, the same day i began the 100-day writer’s bootcamp.

Same result too.

Haven’t missed a single day.

Ever.

This train of thought continues with “i felt i deserved a raise at work” at the next Blog

The way to bliss is through freedom

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival
The bliss from not needing much and being ready for the next step in life

 

Overcoming our greatest fear provides an almost incomprehensible beauty that we would have never seen otherwise.

And to conquer every fear, including the greatest – our fear of death – is bliss.

And bliss is freedom.

And joy.

Love.

Our Choices Make Us

The person we want to be and the person we actually are should one day become…

Oscar Wilde quote on office door grease board
The perils of the dreamer… unknown to many

 

Difficult to wake up and be grateful all day, everyday.

Isn’t it?

Yet it’s our number one responsibility as a person who confesses humility and gratitude to an omnipotent God.

Right?

The person we want to be and the person we actually are should one day become the same – sooner rather than later.

If not today, when?

Like someone overcoming addiction, we triumph one day at a time.

This Might Change Your Life

Overcome Last Night

In bed early last night, with the alarm set for 3:30AM. Occasionally, if I’m the first in bed, I’ll use headphones to listen to something inspiring to fall asleep to.

Awoke to the end of a song that overwhelmed me in it’s beauty. It reminded me why Christmas is so important.

While most of you are just too insanely busy to watch and listen, this post is offered with the hopeful reality that you can find that solitude we spoke of yesterday. And listen.

The people (some may be bloggers) who nag you are the ones who love you. Worry when they stop.
