Following Your Passion ~ Dr. Maya Angelou



The clipping I saved from college when I heard Dr. Angelou speak.

I was sipping on my Chai Tea Latte the other day when I noticed Oprah staring at me.  She was looking at me from a picture, but nonetheless she was gazing.  Then I read the sleeve on my cup and it said, ” Follow your passion.  It will lead you to your purpose.”  Oh Oprah! 
You are right about that.  It’s not an easy journey but a great example of a woman that found her purpose is Dr. Maya Angelou.  What a Phenomenal Woman, who brings Oprah’s statement to life.  Let her example of following her passion be your guide in your journey toward your own purpose.

May she rest in peace.  Read Ronda Racha Penrice’s article about her life.

Have you missed me? I hope so! I certainly missed you! I was away for a moment and then I was off celebrating my birthday. <————Hence the big birthday smile! I'm so happy to be another year younger! While I was on my travels and celebrating I was thinking! Some may say "Oh no!" Only trouble comes about when she starts with her deep thinking lol! But, you know how when you get a year younger (ha) you go through this whole reflecting, self-evaluation, examination of relationships/friendships, etcetera etcetera etcetera.

I didn’t really come up with any real solutions to the Big question every one asks: What is LIFE really about? Ummm, I certainly don’t have a clue. Although, I normally have an answer to everything, the Life question stumps me every time 🙂 One day you wake up and you feel like Oprah “Ahhhh!” The next day its the Twilight Zone “dodododododo!” Hilarious, I make myself laugh! I always laugh at how things change from moment to moment, but how it all really stays exactly the same. We love change, yet we love the familiar. It’s all an oxymoron to me. To you also? Glad to hear, I’m not alone. I have a lot to learn about LIFE! After all these years, I thought I got the hang of it! We’re all a work in progress. But, I’m happy to report I’m getting close 🙂 How about you? It’s just a rhetorical question, no pressure to answer.

I do know one thing: Life is what you make it! It’s true! Someone said just today don’t wait on the sunshine, find the sunshine in you. How Profound! Now that I have gotten that out of my system, back to the business at hand…Life! Shall we proceed….
