Day 2 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge is write a post about this:
If you woke up tomorrow and were free to do anything you wanted with your life, what would you do and who would you be?
This is a tricky question for me and I’m not completely clear how this will end up correlating to yesterday’s post about why I started a blog in the first place and why I am blogging in this century. 😉
Tricky since I have the ability to do just that – do anything I want with my life – every single day I wake up. Actually we all do, but I really have freedom from a day in day out “jay” “oh” “be” (j-o-b). And many days I take it for granted. And some of those days when I recognize I’m taking for granted, I also start beating myself up about the taking for granted AND that I’m not doing exactly whatever it is I want to do with my life and moving forward on just exactly who it is I want to be.
What’s cool, though, is that THIS is exactly part of the journey, this not doing it perfectly, maybe not knowing what to do. My friend Susan McCulley wrote about it when she talked about the in between time.
What I feel most grateful about is that I had begun [again] revisiting and exploring exactly this question [who do i want to be when i grow up] before I started the 30 Day Blog Challenge. Yay for synchronicity!
The short answer is – if I could wake up tomorrow and be whomever it is I always wanted to be, I would be: singer Tina Turner, social media guru Jesus of Nazareth, server extraordinaire Mother Theresa, Jim Carrey just for the freak & fun of it and me. 🙂 So tomorrow morning I best get busy practicing my National Anthem for when the Houston Rockets ask me to open a game, practicing my unconditional love and forgiveness in preparation for the crap things that happen in the world, call the Harris County public library for their next literacy training and NAM for their next domestic abuse hotline training, practicing my stand up (comedy) with friends, family and Turk (my dog) and embracing and accepting all of me and all of my dreams – past, present and future.
What about you? If you could wake up to a different start tomorrow what would it be (and how could you get going on it in the morning)? If you need a little support or some ideas on how to begin feel free to start up a chat in the comments below or you can email me directly.
Big hugs and tremendous love,
