Letting love & inspiration be my compass

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there’s love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” … Ella Fitzgerald

The world certainly seems to be a solid place.  Ever notice how we use that word a lot?  We have “solid citizens” … there are rock solid investments … and there are ideas that are “cast in stone”.  And is all of this a good thing?  Well … I guess it depends on what you’re trying to achieve and how willing you are to be flexible.

Here on Earth we all need a little solidity.  It would be a pretty scary world without the bedrock beneath our feet … the certainty that time and space aren’t going to suddenly warp us off to another dimension … or the surety that the chair beneath our bottoms is not going to turn into something inappropriate for the dining-room table.

I think that the major concern that I have with all of this “solidity” stuff is not the intensity of focus … but rather the danger of falling into a stuck-in-the-mud … dyed-in-the-wool … same-old-same-old routine … for no better reason than it’s comfortable and known … and the even greater danger of giving up on love and inspiration simply because they add too much uncertainty to the mix.

I happen to agree with Ella … I don’t believe in giving up on the people or the dreams whom I love and who inspire me.  Like Ella I don’t believe that you can go wrong there … things may not always work out exactly how I thought they would … and they may not always look exactly how I imagined that they would … but somehow everything seems to fall into place nonetheless.  Belief … love … and inspiration charted my course from the land of the critically ill … back to the healthy here-and-now.  Never giving up on returning to a state of good health kept me moving … and Life was the Grace that finally made everything come together.  Life … and life … are good … and I’m a very happy camper.

Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everybody.
