Was watching Larry king Live as he interviewed Cristina Applegate and one of her hero's, Michael Beckwith. Their story was totally inspiring.
Flipped the channel after they were done talking and caught the last 16 minutes of Joel Osteen's sermon about obstacles and personal Goliaths. I was left energized.
Then I flipped back to Larry and Alicia Keys was talking about the AIDS project/building/foundation she's working on. Sounds so much like my **Start Over House, even though the **Start Over House is NOT specifically for AIDS. Not sure if I've mentioned it here or not, but AIDS/HIV is another issue that is of great importance to me and very near and dear to my heart. And although I too want a place for people who are HIV positive or who have AIDS, the concept Alicia was talking about sounded a whole lot like my **Start Over House. So I was even more motivated to do it after seeing her.
I thought about me and my life, my family, my accomplishments, my set-backs, my obstacles, my victories, my blessings and lessons, my heart breaks and let downs, my instances of total peace and awareness of it, and my Goliaths.
It's funny how we hear and see just what we need to hear and see when we need to hear and see it. BTW, Joel mentioned this too. But it's so true.
I know I'm destined to succeed with the seeds of inspiration that have been planted inside me. They are not of me. But they are who I am and what I'm supposed to be and do.
Thank you, Universe, for the inspiration, confirmation, and endless affirmations.
And be light...for others,
P.S. I kept my promise to myself not to let Thanksgiving steer me off course with my weight loss goals. I'm so happy about it, and I'm still doing well. I feel great about it. I do believe that **by the end of my 1st 100 days I will be leaner, stronger, and healthier.
