I heard a quote from a friend one day that really impacted my life. He said simply “Is Your Song Still In You?”
He then followed that with the question “When you die, will your song die with you?”
Those were powerful questions. Like all such questions, they impact us for a while, then begin to fade as we begin to deal with all that we call life. I recently began thinking about that question again. And, more importantly answering it. Do you want to know what I discovered?
It’s still there!
I discovered that my song is still in me. I haven’t let it out. And, if I died, it would die with me! Well, I am not much of a singer, so my “song” is actually a book. And, I have decided to begin the arduous process of carving that title from my soul! I want to share it with the world! And I want to be sure it is released before it passes with me.
What about you? Do you have a song, a book, a painting, a mark that you would like to leave on this world? MAybe the goal is not so lofty! Maybe you just have something that you would like to share with YOUR world. If so, don’t let it die in you. Don’t let it just be a dream. Bring it to reality.
Never before in the history of the world has it been easier to publish a book. Never before have we had such ready and instant access to an audience as we do today. The dream is a possibility. You just have to release it.
Today, I begin writing my book! I don’t know how far I’ll get, or how long it will take, but I do know for sure that it is ready to be born into this world. Look out. You may just see bits and pieces on the pages of this blog!
Until then…Happy Dreaming!
