Are you living a life you truly love? Can you lay your head down to rest peacefully and content with most of the choices you made in the day, without regrets? Are you living a life that you love or fumbling around just settling?
Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. - Hardy D.Jackson
So many times in life we drift off to that fair away place that take us from reality and into a place I often visit into a world called dreams. And it is often it’s said, that there are two types of people in this world, “those that dream and those that live out their dreams”.
1. Name and where are you from? Tamala Baldwin I was born in Brooklyn and lived there until I was 13. In 8th grade my family moved to Long Island, NY.
2. Occupation(s) I AM a singer, actress, writer, producer and a dreamer!
3. Advice for handling obstacles. Have you ever stumped your toe? I’m sure you have and what usually happens is that your eyes swell up with tears, you may scream under your breath or swear, jump up and down, or rub it until it goes away. Obstacles are like that stumped toe. It hurts and it’s a huge nuisance but eventually it subsides and everything eventually goes back to its natural state. So do what you must? Shed that tear, seek comfort through whatever you’re going through, but rest easy knowing eventually this too shall pass – just like the stumped toe.
As I think about dreams and what’s possible and believe me, that list is endless, I immediately think about my list of to do’s and what I believe would be best for me in moving me further on this journey. Sharing and exchanging these thoughts with my beloved, it dawn on me…
“It’s not what we have to start doing that matters as much as what we have to stop doing.”
As I began to become aware of my habits and my daily activity, it became visible of the stand still moments I could and would want to embrace differently. So how do you go about doing something different? Here is what I came up with.
Sitting here and reviewing past post and comments left from the old site, I couldn’t help but enjoy the warmth and light that visited me while ready this comment. Definitely one worth sharing with you. Enjoy…
There is such an effervescent emotion captured in one’s soul after dreaming of your happiness and you diligently seek out to make it come to past! Yes, I believe in dreams and they do come true! For I have accomplished at least 65% percent of the my dreams. My ebullience is infectious because I encounter it everywhere I go! I am avid when it comes to my passion and love of “The Arts”, mainly but not limited to music! “Music is my life til’ death due us part” and yes I am still dreaming today! It is only one way to make it happen and “YOU MUST HAVE THE ZEAL TO SEAL THE DEAL”! Fervently in love with music, Jorge Alvarez-Washington
There is something special and so on point with Nike’s slogan “Just do it” and I’m sure we can come up with a bunch of reasons why it makes sense. But the one I want to share with you today has to do with energy.
Einstein shared with us that “everything is energy and that’s all there is to it” Energy also plays a large role in what moves us and gives us the motivation to take action. The best part of energy, is that we are never without it, even when you feel low on energy, it’s still there. The most important thing to keep in mind is what’s fueling your energy. I’ll share more on raising energy in another post, but for now I’d like to focus on that little tiny bit of energy that tells you to take action.
