Shoot across the sky...

With the new technologies of social media, now more than ever are we able to see the successes of the people around us. I see this as sometimes a wonderful tool which enables us to look at other people's lives and to ask ourselves whether what we are doing is enough or do we too want those successes but have let our goals and dreams fade into the background because the voice of fear is louder than the one of taking a chance on ourselves.

It's not about keeping up with the Jones's but instead looking deeply into our own lives with our eyes wide open and asking ourselves what do we truly want. Sometimes we may have given up on our dreams and many of us do. Other times we believe that 'those dreams' are only for those 'special' people but not for us. We believe that they are chosen and lucky and that we are helpless to re-design and re-create our lives to reflect the dream and the music playing in our hearts.

I have always believed in greatness but the road is not without challenge, a few bumps and scratches along the way but what it really takes is for us to recognise the spark of divinity within us and to make it grow into a fire. This fire is our will, our ability to create the life we want. All it takes is a little belief, mixed in with a lot of love, a drop of tenacity and persistence with a capital "P".

Sometimes we'll find all the doors are closed but as Katy Perry sings in Firework, 'Maybe all the doors are closed so you could find the one that leads you to the perfect road'. Sometimes we need to let go of our old life for the new one to make its way to us.

I have learned that holding on hurts more than letting go and that trusting the universe and God in our process will always bring us to that which leads us to the best life which we begin to co-create with the master of this world.

With 2012 fast approaching I know that now is the time for us all to recognise our greatness , realise that we all have a unique purpose in this world and that you're original and cannot be replaced and as Katy's song reminds us so beautifully that it's time to let it shine.......

"You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July
Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky"

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe, awe, awe
~ ~
You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
~ ~
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
~ ~
Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

I'll make 'em go, oh, oh, oh
As I shoot across the sky
