Day 20 On Taking Action (My Sacred Life)

This morning I revisited what I've written here and at Small Reflections in the first three weeks of Blogging. I'm surprised by a number of observations.

First off, I appreciate all who have left comments on both sites, and apologize for not acknowledging most of them sooner. I only just discovered them today as I was scanning "the appearance of things on this site" after making some changes to the sidebar (the same way I found early comments & responded previously). I've figured out how to stay on top of this from now on and have posted at Small Reflections about those discoveries. Anyway, I've left my responses today and will be notified by email when new comments are left from now on, so I can reply in a more timely manner from now on.
Live & learn ... :)

Second, I'm surprised by what I've accomplished on these two sites in just three weeks and marvel at the wonder of it all. I frequently ask myself "Who knew?" and respond "Certainly not me!" ... and yet I might have known if I'd given more credence to the words of family and friends throughout the years. They've told me repeatedly my words "resonate" and should be shared with others, but I assumed they believed these things and encouraged me to publish because they loved me ... not because they recognized & understood something I didn't. I'm grateful they didn't back off (nor push me too quickly, for I needed to come to awareness in my own time). I apologize here & now for "discounting" their input for so long, and promise I'll do better (now that I know better).

Finally ... I'm acutely aware of the need for action (finally) and as I continue to explore on these two Blogs, I feel assured that my next steps will become clearer as I travel this path.
"However many holy words you read, however many your speak, what good will they do if you do not act upon them?" Buddha

What's calling YOU to take action on today?

I've always agreed with this idea. If our values and behavior don't match, something is wrong. :)

love this Buddha quote... reminds me of something my Nan use to say - 'practice what you preach'... I try but sometimes I fail..

Thanks for stopping by and adding your perspective. You're correct that "wisdom" gets shared in many ways. Don Miguel Ruiz reminds us that "our best" will vary on any given day ... and I believe one can't fail as long as we don't quit. Our mistakes aren't failure ... just feedback to help us next time around.
Hugs and blessings,
