Get Blissed!

Stephen King once said, ďTalent renders rehearsal meaningless; when you find something you love you do it until your fingers bleed and your eyes fall out your headÖ every outing is a bravura performance because you asrepparttar creator are happy.Ē

My son and I chatted. We concluded if thereís no joy in it, thereís no point in it, and therefore heís best off spending keyboard practice time searching for that Ďsomethingí else where he can hit that high, reaprepparttar 137787 rewards of joy and ensure his life becomes an energetic adventure.

Some of us pretend in life. We pretend to do what we think makes our parents happy. We pretend to enjoy work. We pretend to be happy while we sell our soul. We pretend to be artistic or creative but never put oomph into it and maybeÖ just maybe we drift through life with that thought that there must be something else out there.

But life is an experience Ė one big talent show for us to show off our skills. Itís a stage for us to use our skills for our fun and pleasure and forrepparttar 137788 pleasure of those around us.

Life is not a practice for some future event that we hope will just drop out ofrepparttar 137789 sky. We have to make it happen.

Great writers write everyday until their eyes fall out their head and their brain wonít function, great coaches coach everyday, great musicians play until their fingers bleed. All of them love every single moment of what they do. Itís about passion. Itís about blissing out. Itís about happiness. Itís about being at one with your self - being truly honest with who you really are.

Remember youíre heroes Ė great comedians, interviewers, musicians, singers, teachers etc. They all have that bliss in their eyes, hearts and minds atrepparttar 137790 moment they affected you most.

Letís not pretend another day. You and I came to this earth with a unique and special talent, yet why in Godís name donít you use it torepparttar 137791 full. Why are we doing spreadsheets and sweeping roads when we would sooner be an artist or a therapist?

Put up with snotty customers atrepparttar 137792 call centre or organiserepparttar 137793 bazaar forrepparttar 137794 WI committee if that means something to you, but please do not ever kid yourself about your level of passion and commitment when you choose what you do with your life.

My son made his stance to be blissed by life as a ten year old. How old are you?

Have you maderepparttar 137795 same commitment to your life yet?

Step Four: Admit thatrepparttar injurer is sick During this process, it allows you to seerepparttar 137662 person who has hurt you through a new pair of glasses. It allows you to have empathy forrepparttar 137663 person rather than be angry with them. It truly is a heart-healer. When I admitted thatrepparttar 137664 person who abused me was just like a diabetic or someone who has cancer, it gave my heart satisfaction to really understand thatrepparttar 137665 reason forrepparttar 137666 injury was because they were ill. It was at this point that I beganrepparttar 137667 healing process. Step Five: Look to see if YOU have a part This was another key area inrepparttar 137668 process of forgiveness. It was important for me to make sure that my side ofrepparttar 137669 street was clean. The Twelve Step programs really push their members to clean up all of their wrongs. When I identified my part in my abuse, it was another step towards not allowing it to happen again and to taking awayrepparttar 137670 anger from what happened to me. Step Six: Putting it Behind Me The Lion King has a famous saying that I absolutely love. I'm not sure what character it was that said this, but he said, "You gotta putrepparttar 137671 behind past you," rather than, "You gotta putrepparttar 137672 past behind you." How true is it? If we want to move on with our lives, we must putrepparttar 137673 past behind us. If I keep looking at yesterday, then I'm totally missing out on today. And when I am looking at something that happened 10 years ago, then how many today's have I missed. Step Seven: Choosing to Forgive This is probablyrepparttar 137674 hardest step in forgiveness. It is very empowering though to realize that we have a choice. We can either choose to allow our anger overrepparttar 137675 past to control us or we can choose to forgive and move on so that we can haverepparttar 137676 life that we've always longed for. When we are so angry and are carrying so much pain, I describe it as a backpack full of stones. Inrepparttar 137677 back pack are stones labeled anger, fear, jealousy, depression, etc.... How heavy is it to carry all ofrepparttar 137678 stones around with you? Aren't you ready to put them down yet? The only way for us to put down that backpack is by makingrepparttar 137679 choice to forgive. Are you ready to make that choice today? Author: Lynne Kaska copyright (C) May '05
