I would like to take you back in time, back to the early 1800’s.  Imagine, you hear the crow of a rooster, you stretch and crawl out of bed.  It is chilly and the only source of heat is a wood stove.  You build a fire; you heat water for your coffee and to wash up for the day.  The only light is coming from the flickering of the flames, and an oil lamp on the table.  Now fast forward to today.  Your alarm goes off, you jump out of bed and grab a Keurig.  After your shower, you might blow dry your hair or use your shaver.  All of these conveniences are things we never thought possible 100 years ago. 

Where does electricity come from?  Do you know?  Electricity is a very powerful source of energy.  We can plug in a 25 watt bulb and we get a little bit of light, or we can plug in a 40 watt bulb which gives us a little more light, but if we plug in a 100 watt light bulb, this lights up the entire room.  Do you think that if you plugged in a 500 watt bulb, that the power source would still be there?   Of course, it would be. 

You and I also have access to a very powerful source of energy that flows to and through us.  We are to this universal source the same as a light bulb is to electricity, and like electricity we don’t know where it comes from or how it works, it is just there.  We can resist it and block it, or we can open ourselves up to it and let it flow through.  This energy is unlimited the same way our potential is unlimited and it is our own thoughts and limiting beliefs that prevent us from being anything we want to be.  We have the power and potential to living a life that is amazing and unbelievable; a life that is charged up and on fire. 

Eight years ago I was a very unhappy person who was letting life go by without any appreciation for it.  I then had an aha moment. I realized that my happiness comes from within. I am responsible for my happiness, no one else, and it was like WOW, a light bulb went on.   I went from 25 watts to 100 instantly and my life has not been the same since. I am happy, and by living in a state of continuous gratitude, wonderful things keep happening for me. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be a best selling author.  We all have the potential to be or do what ever we choose and live the life of our dreams. 

Think for a moment about Oprah Winphrey, Wayne Gretzke, or Bill Gates.  Are they living their dreams?  Are they powerful people?  Do they have the power to do what ever it is they dream of?  They have and so do you.  You are not Oprah, or Wayne Gretzke, you are YOU.  You are here for a reason.  You are unique, and no one can do you as well as you can. 

So do you want to be a 25 watter, or a 100 watter?  You  have the power.  So start now.  Light up your life, and live a life that’s rosey.

In light and love,
