Project Forward

I was visited by the future last night in the form of an idea. An inspiration for creating direction in life. And I immediately named this inspiration “Project Forward.”

forward

It began when a Facebook friend sent me a simple message asking me to “like” and comment on one of his posts. This form of reciprocal linking is common, so I quickly did it. It was the post that started the juices flowing. And formed an idea. You see, the post was one about business opportunities and staying positive. And it reminded me of a number of the business programs I have been involved in in the past, and the theme of continuing to move forward with them. Whether it be by following a specific process or formula.

So I decided last night that “Forward it is” and dedicated myself to take this to another level. Where is it going?

Stay tuned.

Share your gifts this week with the world and imagine how amazing things will be.

The Monday intention came to me today as I woke up.The song The Gift by Jim Brickman was rolling though my head. As with many inspirations, the music in my head leads me to them. It is the soundtrack of my life.

Happy Monday – May 12, 2014

Happy Monday! Always remember, you are in control of yourself. How you feel is entirely up to you. Choose to make this a great week!

and another message that came through loud and clear from a friend on Facebook:

and from my FB friend Marie Fay: look for the positive and you will ALWAYS find it! Oh and laugh, chuckle, giggle, have a good ‘jelly belly’ moment just because YOU want to!

 

 

Happy Monday! March 24, 2014

Happy Monday! Spring Beckons! Answer its call and celebrate. Make it a great week.

The Spring Beckons! is actually part of a quote from Ambrose Bierce,

Spring beckons! All things to the call respond; the trees are leaving and cashiers abscond.

and like another quote by Alexander Pope:

Hope springs eternal in the human breast;

Man never is, but always to be blessed:

The soul, uneasy and confined from home,

Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

both start on the positive theme, but then devolve into a comparison to the opposite or a touch on the negative.

For me, spring is growth, spring is rebirth, spring begins. And it is with our intentions that its direction is set. We create our own reality and surf the waves and tides of life as it happens.
