What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love - I don't wanna hear it

Life is not going to come down there and sprinkle glitter dust on your shoulders to let you know that you are Good...or that you are walking the Right Path...or that you are making the Best Decision.

Take the next step. Right now. Stop waiting for a "sign" from the "gods." Your sign is your intuition, wrapped in your desire. Neale Donald Walsh

Confessions on the journey. I am having a moment, allow me please? As we say around these parts "Low mih, low mih" (allow me please), I am getting a bit weary of people who come around me with excuses about why they haven't done "it yet"

What else do you want again?

You got the gift, downloaded directly to you, you were born with it

You got the health and strength

You got the time

You got the fire burning in your belly

Hello, what else do you want?

You are now sick and unhealthy

You are now frustrated

You are now living from paycheck to paycheck

You are now pissing off your peeps

Hello, what more signs do you need?

Do the thing please

You cannot fail

You heard me?

You just cannot fail

If a tomato seed is planted, tomato is the crop, once watered, nurtured and nourished, it really is that simple

Stop the excuses, stop it. Please!

Just go do it and learn along the way, perfection is a stalling technique,
and so are the excuses!

And next time you see me coming and want to tell me the same ole story? I don't wanna hear it! Jus saying....
