there are two essential questions to answer if you want to be at peace in this world–what are your gifts, and how will you share them??? I believe  you want to feel like your sweet life has meaning, and you want to feel a sense of purpose, that’s at the heart of it. giving feels good; to feel like you have something to offer that is of value, creates a state of inspiration and gratitude. It lights a fire under your ass.............. it could be as simple and profound as the love you give to the people in your life. I don’t know of anything, really, that feels better than giving from your heart, with everything you’ve got.

there are many questions in this sweet life you will never answer. how much time do you have? how much time do the people you love, have? What happens after this? some people experience “paralysis through analysis” in small ways and in large. seriously, you can think a thing to death, but your intuition never ever ever lies. there are people living in  agony because their heart is crying out for something, but their mind is overwhelmed with the complications around seeing it through; with can’t and shouldn’t, and who am I to think I could do that and pull it off?????

it can be challenging to separate certain things out sometimes. what you totally want, versus what you believe you should want, or what other people want you to want. if you can quiet that storm in your precious mind, yo will l know what to do. you might not know exactly how to do it, but you won’t be confused about what’s real for you. the rest of it is finding the strength so you can face it. it’s not always easy to accept what you know, because often that means change is necessary, and even though everything is in a state of flux, there’s a tendency to resist that. we like stability soooo much, we can be willing to sacrifice the song in our hearts <3. sometimes people become paralyzed in a larger sense. the BIG questions are sooo overwhelming, the lack of available answers soooo profound, a person is left unable to see the point of being alive at all. dreams, intentions, hope, plans, all seem absurd, and many people end up just existing, instead of living.

there are plenty of things you can know. You can know yourself. you can figure out what triggers you, where you still have some love and  healing to do. you can figure out what fires you up and feeds your divine soul. You can allow the unanswerable questions to motivate you, so you don’t waste the time you have. FEAR is a natural feeling we will  all experience, the more you allow yourself to open to it without letting it stop you, the less power it will have over you as you move forward.

obligation~ is a horrible motivator. too many people get caught up in “should.” There’s something screaming within them, but they push it down or deny it because they really don’t want to hurt other people with their truth. when you deny what you know in your heart to be true, it’s just soul-crushing. you get one go-around in the body you’re in, I think we know that much. you have a finite amount of precious time. how many days/weeks/ years do you allow yourself to live halfway? what do you think happens to those dreams you don’t pursue because you tell yourself you shouldn’t? where do you carry the pain of that? somewhere in your psyche, and  in your body. a life half-lived will make you heartsick. every wasted day has a pull to it, a weight  because somewhere you know this is not it, and time is passing.

the vulnerability of this thing is real af, you may as well open to it. In fact, I’d say the more you embrace it, the more you liberate yourself, the less likely you are to become paralyzed. since there are some questions we’ll never ever  answer, live all the way. give every last bit of your love you’ve got every day, for all the days you’re here. leave nothing in the tank. who knows what happens next, but at least your now will be fantastic and ahaamazing, at least your now will be on fire.Its Lit Baby

mad love and hoping you light it up, and sing your song,
