“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice … have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” … Steve Jobs
There is always someone who has an opinion about what we should think … feel … or say … and whether it’s the government, a religious organization, your boss or personal relationships … in the long run their opinions are simply that … their opinions.
We’re all trained from an early age to listen to our parents, teachers and authority figures … and that makes sense when we’re little and in need of guidance … but the aforementioned “authorities” forgot to mention that there comes a day … often much to their chagrin … when we need to be able to make our own decisions about what is right for us.
Our little kid brains grew up thinking that if someone else said so … that they must be right! And … I have discovered that a lot of times they are right … it’s just that they’re right for them. We’ve been well-trained to turn down the volume on our own Heart’s Song for so long that it’s no wonder that everyone else’s voice drowns out our own. But now is the time and today is the day to hit our internal “Scan” buttons … hoist our Soul’s satellite antennas … plug in our Celestial Ear-buds… and readjust our radios to Life’s … and our own Heart’s … awesome messages and music.
Miss Perky and I love listening to radio station L.I.F.E and its sister station H.E.A.R.T. The messages are always encouraging and upbeat and the tempo makes us want to dance. Sometimes … just for a change of pace … and to be nice … we let Melancholy Molly pick the channel … but it only takes a minute of listening to the Blah-Blah-Blah of the world … for us flip our tuner back to our favorite songs. And you know what? Even Molly doesn’t want to listen to the old stuff anymore! So … the next time you see us dancing down the street … and boppin’ and hoppin’ to the groove of Life … Follow your Heart and come join us … Life throws a really good party.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
