Add Joy to Your World -*- Simply Adjust Your Pace

Your Steps, Your Songs -*- and This Dance Called Life:
Doing your best to stay on a positive path, yet the positive results you’ve grown to expect are somehow blocked or delayed?
Your Joy feels low … and that Holiday Spirit seems missing?
Something Key about ‘the Music’ in Your Own Life Spirit … may simply be amiss
You are far from alone … however it may now appear;
And familiar supportive steps are as near -*- as a song you easily remember.
When the pace is amiss …,
The joy can easily go missing -*-
Rest assured; You can rediscover … the song – the steps – and the dance.
When you remember a song in your head …
You know the steps by heart -*- even if you fail to fully realize this
(Melody-Tempo-Rhythm -*- Are All Arranged in Harmony).
This song example unveils ‘What You Can Also Do to Add Joy to Your World’:
Knowing inspiring songs is one thing; Doing the Life Dance is another;
Even if you know the melody …, the pace at times can be challenging:
Step too fast … and you’ll miss some turns;
Step too slowly … and you may forget to step;
Ignore the pace (the tempo and the rhythm) … and you’ll step out of place.
When the joy is missing, your pace may be off;
Something in the tempo or the rhythm -*- may be a ‘miss’.
Just as you have learned many other steps and songs,
You clearly Know … and can do -*- by Heart,
With supportive practice …
You can learn … and do this -*- in Your Life -*- by Heart
As WELL -*-
A simple change of pace -*- can reconnect you -*- with Life.
Adjust your steps -*- and notice the positive difference.
Try this for yourself … for life … for now -*-
Simply adjust your pace (the tempo or the rhythm) -*-
You Can Add Joy to Your World -*- as WELL -*-
Your Steps, Your Songs -*- and This Dance Called Life:
You really can learn and do this -*- by Heart.
‘Tempo’ and ‘Rhythm’ create the ‘Spirit’ that flows across the Notes in Music,
And ‘Your Own Pace’ guides, balances, and directs -*-
Your Steps -*- And ‘Your Spirit in Life’
Comfortably Support and Lead Your Life:
Take Your Turn, Add Your Steps, Find Your Place:

UnheardAre You a Part of the Herd? … Or Standing Apart … and Just Trying to Be Heard?
Even if you have fully found your own authentic and distinctive voice … being heard these days can be especially challenging. ‘Herd behavior’ now runs as rampant as the once free-roaming buffalo … with only a few voices distinctly heard among the masses. If you feel lost in the crowd … and wonder if, how, or why … this seems to especially be happening to you … the truth is -*- you are far from alone.

Going unnoticed now routinely happens at many levels: 1) Near-instant ‘critical breaking news’ reduces ‘The Evening News’ to a mere recap and update of a select-few, already-known events of the day; 2) the few people who gain public attention are briefly showcased, elevated and highlighted … as notable winners, misfits, and even partial losers; and 3) new LinkedIn ‘Connections’ and Facebook ‘Friends’ are constantly added, yet few people claim to feel more connected … to more truly-close friends.

Getting and keeping attention is more difficult. Winning happens less, and attention spans are shallow and short-lived. Win or lose, well-intended or otherwise … our technology and quest to be more connected in life … has also left many feeling less noticed … less successful, less fully alive … and less connected — to others -*- and even to one’s life spirit.

Many who continue the struggle … go as unheard and unnoticed as those whose spirits have quietly shriveled. And the ‘biggest violators and complete losers’ who occasionally emerge … are clearly branded as ‘ill exceptions’ to the herd, and quickly dismissed, hidden, and discarded.. Good or bad, all in all, far more people feel left out, alone and even broken … than we hear about and acknowledge.

We continue to look to others for inspiration, validation, and support; and as this remains missing, we wonder … what has happened … why we’ve been left unheard, undiscovered, unfulfilled, and uninspired … and what, if anything, we can do. Progress that seemed doable in the past can seem nearly impossible now — leaving many to assume something must be wrong with themselves. We have collectively accepted ‘the competition game’ as our inherent required ‘path for life’; and few are stepping up to question this, change, seek, explore, try out, or champion other connected positive life pathways.

In the past we could do nothing, wait, or find something fun, relaxing or soothing -*- to prompt our inspiration to return. Now even these steps can fail to restore one’s spirit: The weight becomes heavier as the wait grows longer; what entertains is often short-lived; and what soothes us … can also continue … to drain the very life out of us.

A Senior Citizen Advocate recently described how this loss of life spirit often plays out among increasingly-passive residents in some institutions. As one’s life-directed actions lessen, life spirit silently fades; and lives become impaired and literally shortened. And while this ‘passive proceeding’ is already blindly leading to life-reducing and endangering consequences in such facilities, little is being noted about how this is also now happening at large … across human life. The growing loss of spirit is widely apparent: There’s more than a fiscal cliff ahead; and there’s little positive redirection … among the wandering human herd.

Beyond our quest to be competitive, we have also mistaken ‘what passively informs, entertains, and soothes’ as ‘what actively supports one’s life’. We are neglecting to actively nurture what positively connects and steers us -*- our own human spirit. This life-endangering ‘detachment’ is unknowingly happening at large. No protests, no demonstrations, no wake up calls … Not this time — Nobody seems to be saying much.

‘Staying actively involved with life’ has transitioned for many … to simply ‘being passive’. This leads to … less and less … championing of life. Our entire herd … including all who are wandering, unnoticed and ‘unheard’ … may be … nearing … a deadly avalanche.

Something more is needed now — to connect, guide, and support one’s life:  Life is calling: The time has come to rally around ‘This Life Calling’.  Active, self-initiated, well-intended, life-engaging, inviting, and supportive -*- ‘Nurturing One’s Ongoing Life Spirit’ -*- is now more than a self-investment or even a life mission:  This is our life-saving answer -*- to own this ‘Calling for Life’ -*- and our shared opportunity to support and extend life as well*.    

Do This Now … for Yourself … for Others -*- for Life:  Start with your Self -*- Be Human -*- Love to LIVE; Support Your Spirit and Care for Your Life.

Use Your Talent and Energy -*- 4 Life


I left the TV on last night for a change.  ‘America’s Got Talent’ was on … and, for some reason, this diverse blend of dancers, musicians, magicians, acrobats, comedians and more … all competing to become ‘America’s top talent’ …

had me observing how our culture’s extreme focus on competition, perfection, and external validation — as the key primary indicator of worth — has dangerously and silently become critically spirit-compromising, life-limiting, and life-endangering.

An alarming overstatement?  Hang on:  The herd behavior of our media-driven populace may already be creating clear signs of life erosion that prove this is true.

So, Who is Leading?

Let’s look beyond the popular TV show — to explore what we each regard as deserving ‘talent’ -*- in ourselves, others, and life.

We claim to prize individuality, uniqueness, and diversity of expression and contribution as precious commodities …, yet our social and now self ‘sanctioning and approval system’ acknowledges and rewards as ‘fully most deserving’ only those few who truly stand out, outshine, and outperform the others. Being ‘average’ is now ‘a failure’ …, with unselected talented contestants, bachelors, bachelorettes, and 2nd place Olympians as ‘losers’ … who at times now feel as ‘disappointed failures’ for not being ‘the very best’.

What Has Happened:

While ‘continuous improvement’ and optimal or peak performance remain as ‘good things’, our competitive, ‘be #1’ focus has grown so extreme that ‘individual human spirits’ have suffered, lost momentum, and also faded … often without our own individual and collective awareness. Our regressive incremental loss of spirit is also a loss of life energy … and since ‘life’ is ‘energy’, a loss of ‘life’ is literally occurring as this energy loss happens.  As conditions have become more difficult for many, the rallying call, “We’ve got Spirit, yes we do!”, is rarely heard.

Anyway, this is quite the life-compromising and unnoticed price to pay … as we blindly stride on … delaying, reducing, and sacrificing the experience of joy … in our quest to 1) ‘be the best’, 2) make joy contingent on outperforming many others, and 3) delay gratification while ‘progressing’ through the continually-narrowing funnel of competition..

Why This Matters:

Our commitment to ‘superiority through competition and winning’

is overshadowing our commitment to ‘Life -*- through equality and acceptance’.  Yikes!

Aspects of our public culture have transitioned from

Prizing one another’s natural, authentic ‘no two snowflakes are alike’ unique ‘all-as-one’ life-deserving beauty and nature … (i.e. Life’s most perfect gift of all is what you display as you attempt to do your best -*- authentically, with the best positive intentions …)


‘This often is simply not good enough’ (i.e. It often won’t get you ‘the prize’ in life after all).

The Impact:

Along with those who still love to compete are some who once did and now simply follow. Others are less inclined  to nurture and fully display their unique evolving skills and deserving human spirit.

Only you can decide what the friendly competition on a well-intended TV show reveals …  and you can sense for yourself in life when you and others prize ‘only the most perfect of all performers’ as more deserving than ‘unique existing and evolving talent’.

Good: IT Can Soundly Happen -*- 4 You as WELL

ItTurnsOut2With all the news of all that’s going wrong in the world, are you wondering what’s ahead for you as well?

What about that positive ‘global shift of heart’ others keep predicting? Wondering when and how this collective change of spirit is supposed to happen? If ‘IT’ is — or if it ever will?  You’re not alone.

Are these casual strolling words below pure fiction — or could something this basic be true?


Even with this positive perspective and desire, much around us still seems far from loving. And until we clearly and actively prize ‘whole human life’ — individually and collectively — from the heart — our chances for lasting positive change seem remote and unlikely. Beyond our good intentions, we’ll know the shift of heart is happening when we see it reflected in life-encompassing life-supportive actions -*-



As we ‘Love to LIVE’ -*- and actually ‘do’ this within — and increase it  throughout — our own whole life -*- we become more supportive of ourselves. And this better positions us to extend support to others in life with this intention as well.

At the heart, living is about supporting and nurturing life.  And we have positive examples of how we do this -*- as elemental as how we tend and care for our gardens:


WELL Beyond Words -*-

Actions speak louder than words; yet this character noticed how at times ‘what is said’ can positively unveil much more:


T end to L IVE & C are: TLC*

What can you do to nurture your ‘Love for Life’?  How can you actually ‘do IT’? Here’s what this guy discovered:

He then received this life-supportive message to help those who feel insecure and less sure:
