Is life kicking your ass?

 

asskick

It’s time to kick the hell back and set some perimeters of what is acceptable.  First of all, look around.  What do you see?  Either you see a world full of promise or one with lots of problems.  But it all starts with us as individuals.  What do you want to experience in life?  I, for on, like to feel peace inside, but I also like  some asskicking action to make me feel I’m interacting, inspiring, and exploring joy and purpose with the world.

For the most part we don’t live life on our terms.  We get our asses kicked by the system via fear and herd mentality.  There is false security when we rely on the system to take care of us.  That may alleviate some fear, but why give away LIFE for others to decide what you want to experience?   Where will you be when the rug is pulled from under you?

I could never enjoy the 9-5 rat race, and God knows, I’ve had many jobs and worked my butt off for others, but not for myself.  Well, that has ended.  I choose to support myself by stopping to abuse or treat myself like a third class citizen.

And we do!  We always give to others first. Don’t you kinda feel left out??

I can feel peace whenever I want by going within to meditate, but what is it that I put out into the world?  I need to put out there who I truly am.  It’s a journey of discovery, but I’m frigging tired of living according to other people’s ideas.

Who is the best judge of what is good for me?  I am.  Heeellllooooooo.

We, as humanity, have to lift the pillow cases from our heads and take a good look around.  Take a frigging good look around!  How happy are you as a sheep?

Not very.  I know.  I used to look at the clock all the time and wish the day was over.

Is this what I want to share with the world, more misery and unhappiness of every form, or do I want to stand up and be who I truly am and take charge of my life, get a buzz from living fully?   Yes absolutely!

Once you see the whole picture there is no going back to being a sheep again.  I want to live fully, not be a shadow of who I am.  As every action becomes inspired, I inspire others (hopefully) to take some inventory of their lives.

Habits are hard to break, yes, but a slow death while being alive is worse.  Life is an uncertainty, no matter how much we ignore that fact and live under false security.

What kind of legacy do you want to leave?  How do you want to feel?  I choose fulfillment and joy.  I know it’s an inside job, but it’s important how I show up in the world.

It’s hard work to develop yourself and your passion, but nothing is more rewarding in this physical life than doing something worthwhile and feel great in the process.

Everyone will have an opinion of what YOU SHOULD BE DOING, but don’t listen.  What does your heart tell you to do?  If you don’t know, just do one small thing that you have always wanted to do.  Record it in your journal (yes, get a journal going)  and the feeling you got while doing it, and keep doing more things like that.  Before you know it, a path opens up, one you didn’t know was there.

What do you long to do?  Take steps in that direction every day and burdens will be lifted and you’ll feel good about waking up every morning!  How about that?

You would rather think about it or find fault with my reasoning?  Go ahead, no skin off my nose.  It’s your life just cruising  by while you’re watching from the sidelines.

Now, go and kick someone else’s ass!  I’m going to make some art.   My art blog: http://greeneearthoriginals.blogspot.com

Visionary Art Journaling e-course.

Have you ever had the urge to try something new?  Maybe art journaling would be something you could try, especially if you are in the habit of writing a journal.  Same idea but with pictures instead.  The Visionary part is dealing with how to develop your intuition, something anyone can use to their advantage in life.   I have been a psychic reader/medium for many years and I’m choosing this venue to share my knowledge in a fun way.  The e-course consists of six audio meditations and six videos of art spreads that go with what you gained from the meditation.   No art experience necessary!  I would love to share this e-course with you.  There is an early bird price up until June 5.  The e-course starts on June 15.  Click HERE for more information, and if you want to enter the raffle for one FREE spot, go to my art blog and read the instructions there.  Click HERE.   Or, you can join my art newsletter in the sidebar on this site and leave a comment to this post.  🙂

Write That Novel Now! ecourse is live.

The ecourse Write That Novel Now! I’ve been working hard to put together is now live.  Click on the book cover in the sidebar, or go HERE.  I’m really excited about this development and I’m happy to share it to help struggling or novice writers to get a handle on the writing craft.   It is time to share my knowledge with the world.  For many years I thought there had to be a way to share this knowledge without just putting out another ebook on Amazon, but I didn’t know what to do.

My ecourse contains an ebook, but there is so much more, and I’m available for support in the dedicated Facebook group that I created for the students.

You know when something feels right, and creating the ecourse felt right all the way.  It hasn’t always been easy, and as with any writing, there are many not-so-fun parts and challenges to overcome to get it done.  For me it was the technical side, and that is an ongoing and sometimes painful learning curve.  I have banged my forehead against the edge of my desk a number of times, but there was no backing out of the project.  And, miraculously, it all came together in the end.   The bruises have now faded…  ;-P

I learned a lot of technical stuff and I’m grateful for that.  I know it will come in handy later when I create more courses.  Online classes is a great way to share with others, and for that I thank God.  I didn’t think I would ever thank anyone  for technology.  We truly live in a global village and the opportunities are endless.

If you know of any struggling writers, please share this blog with them.  I can truly help and they can learn quickly!

Anyone can come along for the ride!   Maybe you are the next New York Times bestseller author!  It’s never to late to try something new.

So excited about the ecourse!

The fiction writing ecourse is almost done.  I can’t wait to share it all with YOU!   I’ve put everything I know about writing in this course and it’s great.  It was time to get it all down on “paper” and share with the world.   I almost wrote a big book but I decided that an ecourse would be a lot more immediate and people don’t like to read long, complicated books to get the info they need.  It’s all about learning fast and implementing what you learn, so I’m really excited about the format.  The ecourse is divided into sections that are easy to follow.   It will be up online in the next few days, so stay connected for the link.  Happy writing!

Fiction writing ecourse coming soon!

Hi folks, this is the first post in this blog, though I have blogged a lot in the past.  In fact, I have an art blog and you can check it out HERE.  I had a writer’s blog but it went away on The Starship Enterprise never to be seen again…  🙂  I’m excited about this site because I built it myself and I’m far from a geek.  Anyhoo, I’m working on a very exciting fiction writing  ecourse for beginning or struggling writers.  It will be easy to follow with an ebook, questionaire PDFs, and audios.  I will keep you posted.   Shouldn’t be long now if all the technicalities work out.   Sayonara, and keep creating!
