Patricia Bokowski, what wouldn’t you give to live, love, and be happy, deliriously happy, forevermore?
Well, that’s just it, you needn’t give anything, Patricia Bokowski. Just decide to live, love, and be happy, deliriously happy, from this moment forward.
And I shall provide, The Universe / Just like that!
“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs
Just like that.
Your life changes.
In an instant.
Do you ever think about that?
How things happen in life?
Like, if one thing hadn’t happened.
Then something else wouldn’t have happened!
It was my career ending with Cablevision.
I had been there roughly 20+ years.
And then one day, I wasn’t.
Just like that.
So, when that happens.
You have two choices.
Curl up in a ball.
And hibernate for the rest of your life.
You can start a new life.
Because, that’s exactly what I did!
I started a brand new life.
Started my own business.
And I’ve never been happier.
“Find what you love and let it kill you.” – Charles Bukowski
That’s the kind of attitude you to have.
To make those BIG dreams come true.
Not knowing what the hell I was doing back then when I first started.
This IS THE THING I WANT TO DO.
And I just didn’t give up.
Has it been hard?
But, on the days it’s especially hard.
I always remember this quote by Maya Angelou:
“All storms run out of rain.”
“Do things for people.
Not because of who they are, or what they do in return.
But because of who you are.”
– Harold S. Kushner
“Why are you so determined to keep your wild silently inside you?
Let it breathe.
Give it a voice.
Let it roll out of you on the wide open waves.
Set it free.”
“When you ask The Universe to go to the next level,
don’t be surprised when every person preventing progress
is removed from you life.” – Anonymous
And I have found.
That’s how you get a ‘seat’ at the table.
That’s where you find your power.
You don’t find your power when you are surrounded by a group.
You find it by being alone.
“Being along has a power very few people can handle.” – Steven Aitchison
Leap of Faith!
That’s what you need starting out.
A GIANT Leap of Faith.
But I think.
What if really comes down to.
Is a total belief in yourself.
And what you are capable of doing.
And, most people totally underestimate what they can do.
I look at all the thing’s I’ve done over the years.
And I amaze myself.
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”
“Maybe we are here to love wildly, passionately and fearlessly.” whispered the heart.
“You are going to get us all killed!” yelled the brain.”
That’s something you learn early on in the game.
First off, chasing people will get you no where fast.
That’s what I don’t understand.
From people that open businesses.
And then spend their days.
Chasing down clients?
How much fun can that be?
I learned to make my own opportunities.
Is it the easiest way to run a business?
But it works for me.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you.
That YOU, can’t do something.
God knows, there’s been plenty of people.
Who have told me over the years.
That I couldn’t do this, that or the other thing.
And I just smile.
And do what I want anyway!
“Be so good, they can’t ignore you!” – Steve Martin
Here’s a little something I wanted to share with you all today.
Fun facts about Nora Ephron:
She directed, produced and wrote 15 Hollywood movies, including romantic comedy classics such as; “When Harry Met Sally,” “Sleepless in Seattle.” and “You’ve got mail.”
She helped turn Meg Ryan into a world-wide star.
She started her career as a humorous essayist.
Next time someone tells you, you can’t do something, think of Nora!👈👈👈
“One day is just clicks.
You realize what’s important and what isn’t.
You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself.
You realize how far you’ve come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that you would never recover.
And you smile.
You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become.” – Author Unknown
One thing I have learned over the years is this:
In LIFE, you must be constantly learning.
If you want to be amazing?
And who doesn’t?
You seriously need to be learning every day!
It needs to be a constant in your life.
On any given day.
I would say.
I am on:
Easily ten times a day.
There is SO much information to be had.
What if I went another way?
Then I wouldn’t be here! NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Lastly, make sure you follow NineFrogs on TikTok & YouTube – The Frog’s Den – New videos coming real soon!
That’s a wrap!
