Happy Birthday Me :-)

Some things I am think about today 

Its been an interesting year and I can't help but reflect a little on my birthday
I am so truly grateful for the people in my life, they have "shown up" helped me , supported, inspired and shared with me.
 It's such a rare and beautiful thing that I appreciate!
I realize more and more that our life/reality is what we make up in our head and that influences what and how we see the world. 
God is soooooo much bigger than any thoughts or ideas, I am a tiny special piece of the puzzle, holding onto that one specific dream God intended
 I like this joke... "Wanna make God Laugh ...Tell God your plans!":-)
Its such an amazing thing for me to realize we are made up from dreams of the past, building the dreams of the future.

Being imperfect is our most perfect/beautiful human characteristic, the greatest achievement is to try, do and be
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." 

Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic" by Theodore Roosevelt
 delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 

Life is Precious and a gift

You mean more to others that you could ever know or understand

Ladys and Gentlemen some songs and videos on my mind... :-)

Tomorrow way too far away, 
And we can't get back yesterday
But we young right now, 
We got right now
So get up right now, 
Cause all we got is Right Now

20:44min Miles "Something I read someplace, I always believed , you know when your young and beautiful its an accident of nature, but when your beautiful older you've earned it , That you created yourself"

This goes with something my friend Jon Keoni ,a hairdresser, used to say "Gray is a color you have to earn..... It doesn't just come out of a bottle"

We Share the Moon, We Share the StarsWhen the rain falls, it falls in allIn the Right Place at the Right TimeYou Can See the Rainbow Being Defined

Is it Yours, Is it Mine, Is it Ours to DivideIt's Not Yours, It's Not Mine, It Belongs to Us... Sunset Sunrise
I can find right now but there is a story I remember from a book of stories "The Thing Around Your Neck" Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or  "These Things Fall Apart" Chinua Achebe about an old tale of how ancient people believed Heaven and Earth were much closer than we think now and a saying Never to raise your weapon to swift or high for fear of cutting God. Now science and knowledge has explained the physical idea of Heaven farther away but I enjoy the romantic notion that it is so close, and to be mindful of your actions  
Well I dreamed there was an islandThat rose up from the sea.And everybody on the islandWas somebody from TV.And there was a beautiful viewBut nobody could see.Cause everybody on the islandWas screaming: Look ot me! Look at me!Look at me! Look at me!ParadiseIs exactly likeWhere you are right nowOnly much muchBetter.
This always makes me laugh out loud 20:45 min... well I love this WHOLE episode

And I love Mary Mary and this song is good motivation to me

What are you afraid of?

Don't you know what you're made of?
One of God's greatest creations
Take this invitation now

Get Up'
Cause you can't stop
Get Up
Got a lot to do
24 hoursAlmost gone
Get Up
Don't sit there
Get Up
If you wanna get there
Clocks don't stop
Time won't wait

ok, I can go on and on but that's enough deep thoughts for the year lets just get back to doing stuff and junk :-)
