Fierce Friday – Three Letters

Kara Claudia Rebecca WHY

One word, 3 letters – W H Y?
For the freedoms – time, money, choice… all of them.
For the feel-good feelings of knowing I helped people.
For the friendships, team-building, bonds, and connections.
For the empowerment.
For the ability to live my life by design.
For me. For my family.
For my own health.
Some people dream it, some people do it. I have always been a dreamer, but fortunately, I am also a doer!
No, it’s not always easy (because nothing worth having is, as we all know), and yes, sometimes I do let doubt creep in — and then I promptly kick that out, ┬ábecause there is no room for doubt – none!
And no, it’s not for everyone — you have to be willing to work hard and step by step instead of expecting it to materialize overnight… but YES, it’s WORTH IT.
If you’d like to take control and design your life, let’s chat – you CAN do this, and I CAN help you!

Song Lyrics Saturday – Imagine

Any John Lennon fans here? Huge fan here, and this is one of my favorites. There is so much discord in the world, and it can sap a person’s motivation and will to fight. As a Diabetic, I am not impervious to these feelings at all, in fact, I probably have to work harder to keep those brief, fleeting “why am I fighting” moments at bay. Because those moments have a profound impact on my health!

I don’t fool myself into thinking that I can change the world – I can change my part in it, and I can encourage and inspire everyone to do the same, but I can’t change the current state of the world. I can only change my reaction to it. As I have gotten older and become more aware of what a crazy world this is, my reaction is sometimes to just pretend it’s not happening. But it is.

You may say I'm a Dreamer

But I still dream. I still put my dreams into action. I still try to be the best person I can be, to be the light, to lead by example. I maintain hope that we can someday all live as one – one world united by our differences, our experiences, our beliefs and our values. It’s okay that we don’t all see things the same way. But diversity is beautiful. Embrace it. Encourage it. Celebrate it.

Let’s turn this world around ­čÖé
