Thank you for reading my blog. The fact that you’ve taken the time from your day to read this, is a massive deal to me! I wish you good fortune and a quick journey to the life you dream! In this series I’m attempting to share the lessons of some of the corner-stone moments of my life. First and foremost, at no point in my life have I EVER had a plan, never! I’ve always put myself in places where I was WAY over my head and imploded. I see now, looking back that if I would have latched onto one of the smarter people in the room and did what they did, I might have had better results, no! In every class I was ever in, I was in the back, doodling on a note pad, imagining far away planets or wishing I had a cape!
Everything I did in my early years was to get my dad’s attention. My father was a musician, he played accordion music and was either working, teaching or tired, and otherwise, busy. One day, we had just come back from church and a quick stop at the store, me my brother and four sisters piled out of the station wagon and made a B-line for the park, My mother stopped us and shouted: “everyone grab a bag of groceries!” I don’t know why, or where it came from but with perfect comic timing, I stopped, turned toward my dad and said, “call of the wild.” A miracle happened! My dad not only smiled he absolutely howled in laughter. As my mother was beating me, I stored the nugget in my small mind; “laughter was how I would get my dad’s attention.” And thus began my addiction to approval!
I never saw the lesson then and really, I wouldn’t see it for another 3 decades but, there are signs moments in our lives that are magic. The moments where our energy levels expand within us and create joy are the moments that reveal our purpose. When we create joy for others as well as ourselves, we then reach a part of our being the moment before we never knew existed. That part of us that radiates this positive energy, IS WHO WE ARE. I’ll expand off this insight in my next blog.
I’ll share my first Stand Up set with you next time. I was 7 and it was in thee front room of the house I still live in. YIKES! Please share your thoughts about my blog and about your light moments on my FACE BOOK PAGE. Thank you for reading this 🙂
