The last time I reflected on this title, I wrote a poem that forever changed my life. It was November 2002. I was a drug addict and really trying to get my life in order. This poem came to me and I wrote it. I have sense misplaced my only copy, yet have never forgotten the impact it had on my life.
Today, at another crossroads in life I hear the same words: Today is the first day of the rest of your life! What are you willing to do to change?
I have spent a lifetime dreaming of writing. In fact, I have written in secret, in my head, in my journal, and on napkins all the while imagining of becoming a renowned writer everyone fell in love with. Well, guess what? Unless I share my writing how in the world would I expect to become a renowned writer?
Today I change the rest of my life. Today I share my writing with you.
Vivaciously Designed is a place to share my writing with you. My thoughts. My ideas. My reflections. My heart.
Each one of us are uniquely designed, most of us keep our design to ourselves. We come up with so many excuses and why not's we never reach our full potential. My personal why not is "there are so many other people writing about the same thing I will write about so why will they want to hear what I have to say." It is time to turn the why not! into WHY NOT? Because I enjoy it. Because it gives me a chance to get it all out. Maybe somewhere along the line I just might happen to touch your heart.
Today is the first day of the rest of YOUR life. What is it you are willing to do to change?
P.S. If I run across my poem, you all will be the first one's I share it with!
