Do You Have A Dream You Have Not Fulfilled?

 

DO YOU HAVE A DREAM YOU HAVE NOT FULFILLED? by Marilyn L Hart  #MarilynLHart #MondayMotivation #Motivational Do you have a dream you have not fulfilled? You come up with one excuse after another, why you have not done it. I’m too old, it’s too late. I believe if you have breath in your body, it is not too late. The only reasons dreams die, is because you let them die. In most cases, it boils down to fear. You were afraid to take the chance.

 

I had always dreamed of going parasailing, but I did not want to do it alone. Then the perfect opportunity came up. Last year I met my daughter and her family in South Beach, Florida. I asked them if they wanted to try parasailing. My grandsons and son-in-law immediately said yes. I went up with my two oldest grandsons, and my son-in-law went up with my youngest grandson.  We had a wonderful time laughing and seeing the gorgeous view of the South Beach shoreline. It is a precious memory we will always share.

 

Since I published my books, I have had several people tell me, they too have dreamed of writing a book, but they have not done it. When I ask them why they always come up with …

Don't Worry Be Happy, Marilyn L Hart

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Motivational Monday

 

 

Don't Worry Be Happy, Marilyn L Hart In September 1988, Bob McFerrin did a song called, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” You can view the video on You-Tube that he had done for this song. And if you look closely, you will recognize one of the other actors in the video, Robin Williams. One of the finest comedians there ever was. You can see as you are watching the video, they are having fun. My guess is most of it wasn’t even planned, they just started playing around.

 

It is a straight forward song, but the words have significant meaning. The things we worry about today, mean nothing tomorrow. So why are we worrying about them now?

 

Our thoughts are very powerful. And many times, when our mind is focused on worry, it is hard to release it. It is all we think and talks about, day in and day out. Not only are we depressing ourselves, but we are also depressing those around us. You say, “I cannot seem to let it go.” Well, the only person who can let it go is you. No one else can make that happen.

 

If you have a family member who is in harm’s way, …

A SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS by Marilyn L Hart

A simple act of kindness can take as little as a minute, yet impact another person’s life forever. I think nowadays, we make our life so hectic rushing from here to there; we forget to slow down to do the little things.

 

Holding the Door Open:

How many times have you gone to a store, one that does not have the automatic sliding doors and instead of the person in front of you holding the door open to let you in, they just walk in? The door shuts right in front of you. Or have you seen a mother struggling with a stroller and another youngster, trying to push open the door to let them out and people walk right past her, instead of holding the door open for her? This mainly happens at restaurants, where people are afraid if they keep the door open for you, you will check in before they do and get seated first. You were already going to be waiting for half an hour for a table, so what difference does waiting another five minutes going to make?

 

Sharing Your Umbrella:

Have you ever gone to the grocery store and you see it …

#MFRWauthor Week #11 – Do You Share or Hide an Odd, Useless Talent

 
I do not have an odd talent. I seriously doubt if I had an odd talent I would post it on Facebook or do a YouTube video of it. But then again, if a Hollywood agent came up to me and said, “I will give you $5,000 if you will let me film and promote your odd talent,” then I would probably do it. Who knows, maybe having the odd talent and having it go viral on the internet is what it takes to open up the floodgates of getting my name out there to promote my books, blogs and vlogs? Having people come up to me and say, “Hey, aren’t you so and so, who can do such and such?” is the ideal publicity, no, but it is publicity. Hum, maybe I need to come up with an odd talent! ☺

 

Even though I do not have a unique talent, my Dad did. He had the ability of raising his ears one at a time and wiggling them back and forth. Many of us can raise both ears at once, but we cannot raise one at a time. Was this an odd talent, yes, but as a …
