I watched the movie RUDY last night. What an inspiration! Rudy had the heart and soul of pure determination! He had a dream, a burning desire, and nothing and no one could stop him from reaching that dream. No matter how many times he was laughed at or put down, his deep desire and the voice inside did not let him rest. He pushed on with everything that he had. Tirelessly determined. When all hope was gone, he was rewarded, in the last minutes, of the final game, of the season of his senior year at Notre Dame. His efforts won him a place in the hearts of his teammates and recognition in the schools history.
My sister gave me a plaque for my 60th birthday that quotes C.S.Lewis: "You are never too old to DREAM another dream." To become philanthropic with the profits from my art is my new dream. I have determined that the focus of my efforts shall be for the causes of the 3A's near and dear to my heart - Autism, Alzheimer's, & Abuse. I don't know where this path will lead. I only know that I am headed in this new direction and the journey has begun. Seeds that were planted years ago are just beginning to sprout.
What is the burning desire of your heart? When you get very quiet and listen to the still small voice, what is it saying to you? Trust that it is your authentic self calling to you in LOVE and LIGHT. Never darkness. We are here to lift each other up, never to bring anyone down. Listen well and take that first step. Where does your path lead? Please share. I really would like to know.
