There is no substitute for LIFE! Either you are in it or you're not.
It seems to me that many people that I know have been "wishing and hoping and thinking and praying", but I have heard few of them say they are really LIVING the life they wish to live.
Well I decided a while ago that I was going to live life right now. I decided that the things in life, the stuff of life is readily available to me and mine to have and use at my leisure. I decided to take life by the reigns and enjoy it once and for all.
Recently, my partner, Freddie and I decided to go on a cruise to St. Lucia, St. Kitts and St. Marteen. It was his first time cruising, my third. We had a wonderful 8 day vacation and wished it was longer.
Well, while we were in Florida preparing for our disembarkation the next day, we decided to spend the day in South Beach. We rented a candy-apple red drop-top Corvette and made our way down to the beach. It was so much fun to feel the wind in our face and just relish life! Little did we know that this ride was about to change our life forever.
When we arrived at South Beach, we walked to the shoreline and looked out over the water. We held each other, prayed and cried. (Personal things) But ultimately, it was extremely cathartic.
Then Freddie said, "Baby, I think I could live here."
I said, "Really... Let's do it!"
That was the decision that changed our life. After we got back from the cruise, 10 days later I was making the drive down to Ft. Lauderdale and I was eager and totally ready to start a new life with the love of my life in a place that is filled with life and ambiance.
All I will say is this... You are the Master of your own fate. The captain of your soul. It is through the power of your decisions that God orchestrates the Universe to move in your favor. So DECIDE now to live life without fear, totally free to experience everything you desire. This is my story... What's Yours?
