A Note from Jerry …
Last week I talked about looking for that something that would get me jumping out of bed . . . excited about the day and loving life!
I believe the most important thing you can do is to “find” yourself . . . and then “BE” yourself! Are you even looking for who and what you are?
If not, spend some time every day seeking what it is that gets you going. What’s fun? What makes you laugh? No one is going to jump out of bed in the morning to “pay the bills”, or “do the report”, or take care of all the other obligations they have.
Your obligation is to be true to yourself! To trust and honor what you know in your soul is the “thing” that would make your heart sing. There’s nothing musical about paying the water bill!
You want to be the best damn (mother, father … fill in the blank) you can? Be the best damn YOU first! But go for self-discovery before self-development! We get so busy improving ourselves without even considering who and what we’re improving!
That “thing” is out there. Look for it . . . acknowledge it . . . treat it like the gift and gem that it is: the shining light of your truth.
Don’t be afraid. No . . . go ahead and be afraid. Just take the steps anyway.

Start rowing … and by the way, the oars are out in the garage, so you’re going to have to get out of bed anyway. Jump!
