Thoughts on my personal legend and cute life.
What do I want to leave behind when I die? What will be my last grain of spiritual sand be like?
While reading Paulo Coelho’s blog yesterday and today I keep thinking about his post on Personal legend. Maybe because I’m aware that life is short. I’m thankful for this life that the Lord has given me, I believe I have a beautiful life and I intend on keeping it that way. First let me give the definition of personal legend from Paulo Coelho’s blog.
Personal Legend: A personal legend is the path we decide to take that fills our heart with enthusiasm. It is the path of our dreams.
With that stated I know that my personal legend is be a writer, I want to write kids books. I’ve known this since reading Nancy Drew as a child.
I’ve started on my first book, last year and I keep coming up with every excuse to why I have not finished writting this book.
Excuse #1. I don’t have enough of evidence to complete the book need more research
Excuse#2. I haven’t finished college I’m going to sound ignorant.
Excuse#3. I’m tired I will start next week.
Excuse#4. I need to clean up my life first (its really not that messy even with its mess I realize it beautiful)before I start anything else.
(as I write these excuses I”m thinking what a bunch of crap I’ve managed to brain storm to keep me from completing this book if I can brain storm up these ideas I can brain storm up the rest of my book!!!)
Excuse#5. Doha,Qatar isn’t the place for my mind to feel free to write. I need to leave Doha and be in a more relaxed enviroment.
Excuse# Thats enough with all the excuses!!!
Anywho with those excuses written down and hopefully set free from my mind . I can run, jog, walk, crawl back to my path and get back to writing my personal legend to the end. I notice when I started writing my first baby that there was so much passion and life flowing in my veins and I know that is what I should be doing.
I keep getting this crazy fearful thought that keeps popping up in my mind. If I don’t start utilizing my gifts that maybe it will become a curse and i will either die early or I will become one of those old people that are bitter and struck with some crazy illness called bitterness that will cripple my mind and body in old but young age. See Bitterness kills the spirit slowly, once the spirit is crippled severely then you become the walking dead. A while back I was walking around upset with everything in the world pouting, cursing and mopping because things were not going how I wanted them to go. I realized I had to snap out of it this is not how I want my spirit to be my spirit to look, over all how you feel inside shows on the outside!! One day I walked passed the mirror in my room and looked at myself and a voice said gently “be kind, be gentle, be sweet, be Love”. Now I have to keep reminding myself often when BL1 Flu (bitter life) season comes around to relax and be kind, be gentle, be sweet, be Love.
TTFN (tata for now)
