A Moment for You...

Each of us is sitting here today hoping and wishing for the most amazing New
Year. I have done the same for many years in a row and always believed that
something would come my way. I was wrong. Nothing magically comes your
way. That would be divine intervention. Nope. The idea is to work for the
things you want. How do you figure out what that is? This requires a
little quiet time. Turn off the TV, your iPod (unless you are running) and
all the other distractions you are facing. Let the quiet do its work.
Listen to what is in your heart. Look for images of what you imagine
yourself doing. I ignored an image I had in my head pretty much all my life
until 10 years ago. That image was me on a stage doing something in front
of a lot of people. I did not know what that something was - I wasn't
holding a guitar - but I was doing something and now I can see that image
was part of what I have become. Search inside for your dream. Find the
thing you are passionate about even if that thing is cleaning, walking,
combing hair or throwing out garbage. Passion and keeping your head and your
heart open will help you develop your dreams - make them realities.

Let's make this next year about finding our "stage" and giving life to our
dreams. What have you got to lose?

Remember I am always listening and supporting each of you.
Hugs
Tosca
