Your Song…

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” …  Henry Thoreau 

Was doing my normal weekly wind sprints, (ugh!) this morning and happened to notice an elderly couple confidently walk by with the attitude and hopes of a young teenage couple.. stopped me in my tracks.  Just got me thinking how wonderful it was to witness so much happiness in others; especially so late in their years!

I’m certain, we all at some level strive for happiness in our lives, seeing them this morning tells me it’s never to late to start!

Here’s the thing I’ve found, we all have a personalized song yet to become crystallized that will guide us to what we would confess as happiness..  Many of us just do not realize some truths about getting there.  It always starts with an awareness followed by a series of confident / faith made decisions.  Many never realize their God Given purpose due to their reaction to this truth as manifest by how they react to failure.  

If you are honest with yourself, you have felt a yearning tug in emotions in a certain direction where all you would have to do was to make a small decision based on faith / belief in its realization.  This basic truth lies in how a song or songs give life to a hope of what could be; possible love, fame, or some level of resolution.  I mean, just look at the power in that certain song that brings us back to the moment of ‘what could have been..’ Yes!  you know what I mean!

Best songs tell a story you can relate to.. or maybe it’s just a glimmer of what is at the end of your journey..

…many go to their graves with their song yet played… Thoreau (paraphrased) 

The yearning when a story shared or song is played is the moment a personal decision is always made..  incidentally, doing nothing is a decision too.

Wishing each of you a moment of reflection in the becoming of the character in your song!
