It’s true – we are so busy preparing for that perfect life that we sometimes forget to live the one we’ve got in the meantime. Try going a day without saying “I think” and “I want”. (Did your brain just say I want to do it but I think I can’t?)
Do something now that you love to do, and enjoy the hell out of it.
It’s dangerous to let me wander around unattended in the self-help section of a large bookstore. I get ideas. I bring them home, and then I share them.
I don’t think Mike Dooley will mind if I tell you to buy this book. And I don’t think you will be disappointed in my advice if you take it.
It won’t take up much of your time to read all of it, but if you’re anything at all like me, you’ll spend the same amount of time going back to the beginning and skipping through it one more time to re-read all the things that made you smile and laugh and feel truly amazed and so emotional you wanted to cry.
In a good way of course.
Now that I’ve read more notes I’ll read the original Notes from the Universe which I’ve downloaded to my kindle. Along with Leveraging the Universe because I think these two books will be equally amazing and because I seem to like doing things in multiples of three; going backward or forward apparently doesn’t matter to me.
If you were here with me now I’d happily lend you this delightful little book to read for yourself.
Sharing a couple or three passages here will have to do for now. These are the pages I’ve stuck the book jacket flap between because the words touched me in a way I can’t explain. It’s a comforting thought to believe that souls come back to live again, and that we each choose our own circumstances before starting the next adventure. We won’t have any idea why we picked this particular life until it’s over and only then do we get to see what we’ve made of it, one way or another. Maybe it’s a little crazy to think that way, but on a crazy scale of one to ten I’d give it a middle of the road 5. People have believed way stranger things.
If these particular passages don’t speak to you in any profound way, don’t worry. There will likely be something in this book that does. Maybe lots of things. (Maybe nothing!) Maybe it will change your life. Maybe it won’t. Whatever you decide, it’s nice to have a choice.
Have a great weekend.
