Life has so many precious moments -- do we recognize them? Certainly the disaster in Japan has affected each one of us in different ways, and has made us reflect on how life can change in an instant.
I believe that each one of us has a life that matters and a message for our world -- whether that is through art, writing, dancing, singing, designing, healing, science -- it’s all art. If you asked these questions (taken from the book, “The Millionaire Messenger” by Brendon Burchard -- a true seeker in life) every day, instead of waiting until the end of your life, it would remind you to live your LIFE and do what you came here to do -- the questions are: Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?
What magnificent and important questions these are! Our world is changing and the expressions of ourselves -- let’s call it Art -- are what we are here to share. In his book, Brendon shares his amazing insights into how we can get our message out to the world and be the “experts” in our fields. His message of giving your talents to help others is very profound and it is what has set him apart from so many other “self-help gurus”. He says, “I believe you are here because deep within you, there has been a restless stirring to share your voice with the world in a big way”. His book is well worth reading and will guide you to learn more about where our world of “information” is taking us.
As artists, we have to find new ways of getting our art out to the world, and certainly the internet is the biggest avenue these days.
I have printed Limited Edition note cards to help raise money (in a small way) for the people of Japan, and for our military. It is also my way of sharing a part of my message to the world -- we are all here to serve one another, learning from one another and give our best to the world.
Thank you for being a part of my world. Please share this blog with everyone you know and let’s all live that magnificent life we are meant to live.
