”Happy wowday.

Halloween gives you permission to dress up.  April Fool’s, a chance to play a prank.

What if there was one day of the year where you had permission to do things that made people say, ‘wow.’

Acts of generosity or bravery or insight…

What if you focused and practiced and got your nerve up and leaned way over the edge, just one day of the year?  If you could get out of your comfort zone for a few hours in a way that benefitted and delighted people you care about, what would that look and feel like?

Today might be your wowday.

Or tomorrow.

Up to you.”   (Seth Grodin, Seth’s Blog, 3.18.14)

“…That thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, too early in the morning, too late at night.  That thing you read about, write about, think about, in fact fantasize about.  That thing you do when you’re all alone and there’s no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue.  That’s it.  That’s your thing.  That’s your heart, your guide. That’s the thing you must, must do.”   (upliftedvibrations)
