I wrote that heading with the very familiar "same old, same old" feeling weighing heavily on my conscious. You know what I'm talking about. That feeling of "gee I wish I could follow through with my good intentions".
As I started writing I thought a little more about the heading. Meditated on it. "It's one thing to say it, it's another to live it". It's completely true. They are two different things. Intent and action. However, they are not conflicting notions. In fact, a great deal of universal wisdom suggests that intent is where it all begins.
So why can't I live it as well as saying it? There's no reason and nothing stopping me. Only my own fears and self-doubt. But if I stop for a moment, give those pesky fears and negativity a good walloping and listen to what's left it's fascinating. There's no reason and nothing stopping me. I can be everything I want to be. I can achieve everything I want for myself. Who would have thought?
You know what else? You can too. So get out there and say it. Whatever it is. Put your intent out there in the universe and see what happens.
I have been absolutely bowled over and tickled pink by the response to Blogtoberfest. Where did all you crafty peeps come from? See what I mean about intent? I put myself out there and it came flooding back. It's chaotic here at Festival HQ just now. So, I'll be popping around on the weekend to visit each and every one of you. I'm serious. Pop the kettle on and dig out the good china. I'll be round for a cup of tea on Saturday or Sunday.
As for tomorrow, I'll be Loving Friday. See you then.
