Seize the Life Which Awaits.

“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself.
Go forward and make your dreams come true.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


Hush now and listen to the magic
Calling you from beyond every new door,
Once you have the courage to say…


To the old one behind you
And walk courageously through
To your next adventure.

When one door closes
Another one opens.
There are endless doorways waiting
For you to step through them…
Infinite opportunities waiting
To become yours manifested, into reality.
The new doors that stand before you
Will open you up to something
Far greater than the door that closed
Before it ever could have.

Any so-called-risk
Of letting go…
Trying something new
Or stepping out and following
Your heart or soul that beckons you
Is usually perceived only in the mind
Often projected from the past
And isn’t really true for you now,
In this present moment.

Or is it?  Really true?

What is the alternative?
Spending a lifetime wondering
What might lie beyond that door?
The only real risk is not truly living
A life true to your heart
And withering away behind
That old deteriorating door
As you continue
Living your life with regret.

Your evolutionary impulse summons you
To risk the discovery of new possibility.
Walk through the portal of opportunity
And seize the new life which awaits you.



“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”

~ Rumi


“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson



Be In the Moment and Life Your Best Life
