Staring Down At Empty Pages July 24, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Mindfulness, Music & Dance.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.   Trite, but true.  Everything until now is just water over the dam

Where you go from here is up to you. 

Today is where your book begins.  Again, true.  The rest is still unwritten.

Remember that feeling?  When you came home with a brand new notebook filled with empty pages. 

Life’s like that.

Staring down at Empty Pages . . .

How will you fill them????

No rules.  Just write!

Like the analogy of the empty notebook 🙂

Me too!

Many singer/songwriters use it to get the point across that life starts . . . NOW!

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be! Life is an adventure, because you never know what will happen; it’s sort of like the weather in Texas – if you don’t like it, just wait a few minutes, it will change!

Love the post! The first phrase was our high school class theme in 1969. So long ago, that back then it was new. Didn’t start becoming trite but true until years later! 😀 (Also, our class song was “The Impossible Dream!” Talk about dating myself!

We’re balloons . . .

We can fill ourselves with enthusiasm, fly high, and look for new adventures . . .

Or we can lie around deflated . . . waiting for someone to come along and inflate us (and our Egos).

Personally, I’m too impatient to sit around waiting for someone else to save me from self-defeating thoughts. : )

I’d rather Dream The Impossible Dream . . . great song!

Yup. Sometimes I will wait for a little while, not to have someone else fill me – (unless by a new in-filling from the Holy Spirit!) – but to take the time determine what corner I want to turn around!

One thing I’ve learned . . . balloons NEVER inflate themselves.

You either do it yourself, or play the victim and wait for someone else to come around and do it for you. What a waste of time.

That’s one reason I’m writing this blog ~ I’d rather teach people to fish . . . then keep tossing “hand-ups” their way.

The holy Spirit is a “gentleman,” or a “lady,” and never enters without invitation – it can’t be done without you!

As soon as we say, “Enough. I’m tired of throwing this Pity Party for myself” . . . Spirit is standing by to encourage us to move forward along our path.

Holding out an idea, a hope, or just pushing us in the right direction.

5. Paula - July 24, 2010

Yup…and even more!

nrhatch - July 24, 2010

Just so.

The wind in our sails . . . and stars to steer by.
