There is no better example of this than the movie LEGALLY BLONDE, which is the MOVIE FOR THIS WEEK OVER AT CINEMA SATURDAY'S CHALLENGE! You have to check this site out, if you haven't already...It is one heck of a blast to play!!!
The last 7 weeks I have been homebound with the flu, so I've taken in a larger than my share portion of Dr. Phil, Oprah and Dr. Oz. There seems to be a repeatitive message, if one mindfully condenses the show messages into one..."no one else is going to live your life for you, so get off your *ahem* and get to it!" Along with that (a la Oprah) message is one of finding out just WHAT your thing is, and when you find it...DO IT...and in itsy bitsy small brackets...do it no matter what anyone says. To me, this speaks of exploring and discovering one's PASSION, a topic my 24 year old son and I were just speaking about together. We are both in the arts. He is an accomplished musician. He put it elegantly and melodically when he told me...music is 'the soul' when referring to himself and his own relationship to his art form. With G-d's help, he found his PASSION, which was only the beginning. He works very diligently to grow that gift and passion daily! Well... how can one avoid 'their soul' if they are being true to themselves, living authentically and being honest with others? In my estimation...they can't!
Today's card is dedicated to finding out what is 'the soul', 'your soul', 'your passion' and living it all the way - no matter what anyone says - cuz it's YOUR LIFE!!! SQUISHY HUGS.
