It’s Time to Change the Voice…

There’s a voice down deep inside.  You know the one.    fire heart for thank you cards 2

The one that says there must be something more.

You may decide you are hungry, thirsty, you need a hug, or ear to listen to your woes.  But even if you quench every thirst…every need seems to be met.  That voice whispers once again…more.

You fall asleep at the end of the day wanting.  Wondering.  Never quite Full.

Then one day you see a neighbor in need and you lend a hand.  Your feeling of longing, of wanting, subsides momentarily.  Hmmmm.  Odd.

You continue in your daily hustle, bustle…full throttle.  Pulling, pushing, moving, shaking, doing.

But never fully being.

You are asked for help.  You serve.  You receive a simple “Thank you.”  And you realize you feel good.  Not just good.  You feel GREAT!  You feel fully alive.

And the voice is quiet.

If this speaks to you…if you know in your heart that the beauty of being Fully Alive resides in your ability to connect and contribute.  If you know that when you use your unique gifts to share, serve, and give that feeling is exponentially higher.  If you realize that in giving you receive more….In serving you become more…In connecting to another you experience meaning more…If you intuitively know this…then you must listen to the voice.

Start small.

Share a smile.  Lend a hand.  Find a way to use the talents you’ve been giving to lift another.

I believe the world can change if each person quiets the voices of self-doubt and instead raises the volume on that inner need to Be Love.
