The Stage Is Set 2011

The Stage is SET
Are you
The choices are many,
to sit and watch
To get in there and
give it all you have,
create the show of your life,
The Greatest show of Your Life.

The stage is Yours
ready for you to step front and center
right here right now.
Own it
just like OPRAH ~
With an attitude of great gratitude
set your intentions
go for it!  
"As the rose-tree is composed of the sweetest flowers and the sharpest thorns, as the heavens are sometimes overcast -- alternately tempestuous and serene -- so is the life of man intermingled with hopes and fears, with joys and sorrows, with pleasure and pain."
 Edmond Burke

Many made those resolutions on
New Years Eve, as we have all done at some point or another...
Perhaps it is time to just step out there
center stage with your
Just be the Warrior
with all you have.
"Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect."
Chief Seattle

Today is the day,
get a pen and paper
Make promises that you will not break
the most valuable player in your life
Dance on the web but know that you
will affect all and touch all with each move, each step.

"I Promise..."
1. To be a Warrior, so that nothing will ever again disturb your peace of mind

2. To walk the walk and talk the talk of health, happiness, prosperity to every person you meet whether face to face, online, or by phone or prayer

3.To let your family and friends whether in person or on line or by phone know and feel it; that there is something of great value that lives within them through times of great joy and sorrow

4. To find the rainbow that is there through times of great storms although it may be well hidden in the dark clouds while YOU make your true self come through clearly to self and to others.

5. To think only the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best of self and others no matter what.
6. To be just as happy and thrilled about the success of others as you are about your own path and the success of self.

7. To STAND UP when you know it's right, even if you find you are standing alone.

8. To wear a cheerful, kind and compassionate suit of strength at all times and to give every living beings you meet a smile of genuine self, no matter what you receive

9. To dance on desks and car tops on a Monday even if it's in your mind (after all, it's the start of a week that you are blessed to be alive to witness)

10. To give so much time to kindness and compassion that you have no time to criticize others

11. To remember that your most precious resource is
YOU, if you cannot stand for you, you have nothing to give to others....
(how bout that now)

12.To live in living color, too large for worry, too heroic for anger, too strong for fear, and too damn happy to allow presence of trouble (whether real or imagined)

13. To Live with Passion

14. To live by honoring the Ancestors and all living things always

15. ________________________ (yours to add)

The Stage is ready,
Your script is done...
You are the STAR
of your OWN show...
Oprah may have the network
you have the award winning show
of your life

STar in it,
Be it
Do it
for YOU and those who might just say this:

"There are many times your positive spin on things has helped me feel better, given me a new take on an old situation or just outright made me laugh...
I can't tell you how great that is
that you live your life that way" 

 "You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you"
John Wooden


This is your year!
Outshine that stage,
YOU are all that and so much more,
Thank you all for a wonderful year
here on this special page.

The kiddies are back to school today and parents are doing a happy dance to be sure...
Lily and HOPE out in Ely MN are making fans on FB and across the world a bit daft as they saw a "mouse, a snippet, a critter" in the den yesterday!  It was pretty funny as the pics and guesses just flooded the page with wonder, but didn't seem to phase the bears, and we got to see their "rumps"... or as a friend said yesterday awaiting Hope's birth last year,
"It was as exciting as watching paint dry",
 but watch we are, this year,
to see if Lily The Black Bear is goin to give us cubs.
to see them live!

The fire is burning brightly, the embers are ever so hot,
with thoughts on the wind to all who enter here,
and, to and for those in the prayer bowl, also special prayers for Steve in CO who has been diagnosed with Cancer, now in the hospital and not doing well,
 we are thinking of you Steve, we are praying for you.
Cancer SUCKS.

Walk In Beauty,

Great blog today, many words of wisdom. I for one am jumping on this New Year with great hopes and efforts to make this the best year ever. I am going to try and make lots of people happy if it is just with my great smile. There will be no sorrow or tears in my life. The only tears will be of joy. I have so many things to be thankful for and I intend to give others joyful thoughts and love. We only go around one time and we better make it count. Life is wonderful here and I am sure the others on the other side is joyful and wanting peace with all. Have a great life and live it to the fullest. God Bless our soldiers and their families, bring them home safely. God Bless all of those who are suffering. God Bless the USA
