Do You Love What You Do?

Cover Create a LifeYou have the right to pursue happiness. You have the right to live a life you love. You have the right to choose what that is. But, do you have the courage to do it? Do you have what it takes to follow your dreams?

I don’t like to see unhappy people. When people are unhappy, they create a negative ripple effect on others and bring the whole world down with them. I try to do what ever I can to uplift and inspire others to make a change and live a life that will contribute to their happiness. And, because of this I started the book series, Growing Up For Grown-Ups.

I just finished the 2nd book – (extra) Ordinary People Who Had the Courage to Create a Life They Love. Along with my two-cents, it’s a collection of stories from people who took a leap of faith and went on to live happy fulfilling lives. They had the courage to pursue their dreams and create the life they love.

If you’re interested in being inspired, or need a little insight into what it takes to change your own life, it will soon be available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, among others. If you want an advanced copy, you can purchase it directly on the website, Growing Up for Grown-Ups.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And, if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
– Martha Graham

At first I was inspired, and then a little sad. It also reminded me of another quote I heard in the movie “A Bronx Tale.” Chazz Palminteri’s charachter, Sonny,┬ásaid, “The saddest thing in life is wasted talent.”

I believe we are creative beings and it’s sad when people don’t bring their inner beauty to light…I encourage you to follow your dreams – I actually wrote and recorded a song about it – here’s a snippet:
