On what would have been my brother’s 45th birthday (August 20th, 2016), I went with some family and friends to see a psychic medium. It was a small group session (40 people total), and in true Stephen style, he was the first spirit to come through.
The medium had A LOT of messages for us from my brother. One of the best things she said (in my opinion) was “Oh – I just love his personality! He’s one of those guys who just likes to ‘fuckin’ give’r’!” And we really got a laugh out of that because he absolutely was like that. No holds barred. Flat out. Wide open.
She also said (without asking his age): “He may not have lived a long life, but he REALLY LIVED all of his twenty something years”. Indeed, he did.
And it got me thinking… Where have I been being complacent lately about my life? (Going through the motions without really being invested in what I want – without even asking myself if the life I’m living is the life I want.)
The idea that I have been existing but not really living got me totally fired up! Because that’s not who I want to be or how I want to live. I want to experience as much as possible!
“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find I lived just the length of it. I want to live the width of it as well.” ~Diane Ackerman~
This realization resulted in me booking a spontaneous trip to Maui to take a couple of workshops with Doreen Virtue. I am super excited!
How about you? What have you been putting off?
Just so you know… Getting what you want out of life is not solely for ‘special’, ‘talented’, ‘gifted’, or ‘lucky’ people – it’s for all of us if we are willing to believe in possibility… and in ourselves.
If YOU dared to follow your dreams, where would you end up?!
