Hope – On a Blank Page – Day 21

What is your hope today?  I look at a blank page in my newest planner and imagine accomplishing what I was born to do.

My inspiration comes from artwork created by the hands of an amazing artist,  Marjolein Bastin.  Reading her biographical page on her website, I find that she knew what she wanted to do from a very early age.  Her love was nature and she collected treasures like pinecones, seeds, and flowers in her early childhood days.

As I look ahead to opportunities of this life, I realize I often go through a gathering stage.  Much like an artist, I surround myself with inspiration as reminders of what I love.  When I fill my treasure chest, I become in tune with my purpose.

Many of us wake each day with a fresh slate or a blank page.  We may recall yesterday or look to tomorrow while we make our plans.  Soon our page is filled.

What if on any given day, we were given only the time to accomplish what we were born to do?  The beauty of life is, we are.  We were born to be who we are today and dream of who we can be tomorrow.  Our gift to the world is what we give and who we are.

My hope is this page is filled with inspiration for you to dream of possibilities today and every day.

So many opportunities exist to express the unique person you are.  Fill your page with dreams.  Do not view these opportunities from a viewpoint of scarcity.  When you do what you love, your uniqueness shines for others to see.  

There is no reason to hide your light. Sharing your gifts with others is what you were born to do.

    1. Suzanne, Thank you once again for making my day seem brighter with your interested reading and your kind words! I’m so glad those words reached you. Ironically, I needed to hear them to today. It reminded me of the things I had written as encouragement for others and how that is really my ultimate goal with my writing. Sorry my reply is so long, but once again, you touched my heart and hope you have a gorgeous weekend! Erika
