1st Guest Blog Post of 2012!!!!!

I am so honored to share this blog post with all of you!  A friend of mine from when I attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA, Jason Dombrow, is probably the most charismatic, funny, and lively person that I know.  Jason is an accomplished actor/comedian and professional organizer (NAPO member).  He has pursued EVERYTHING under the sun from music to finance (He was even a stock broker!)….seriously, I don’t think there is much this guy has not pursued. This is exactly why he is the perfect person to have as a guest blogger and I couldn’t have asked for a better person/blog post to start the year!!!!

Well, without further delay, here is his short, but sweet, thought for the day (or the year!) with quite the clever title, I must say!!!! Thanks again Jason!!!!!!

Love

By Jason C. Dombrow

I seem to be forgetting a little too often these days. Who was I calling? Where was I going? What was I doing? What did I want to be when I grew up? When “reality” sets in, and I open my eyes to look at the circumstances of my life (at 35 years old), I’m left with two questions. “What happened? And, “How did I get here?”

I have spent years trying to figure it all out. To get it right. To find the one thing that will make me, well, “Happy.” Is living a life to pay bills the life I want? Highly Doubtful! However, as much as I struggle and fight for the life I want, I’m failing and falling behind.

Now, I know this may sound depressing. However, truth be told, what I’m forgetting here is that it’s perfectly okay to “Start Over Love!” (Clever title, huh?) After all, I’m the one in the driver’s seat! I’m the one who’s gotten distracted, who’s forgotten to follow my passion. I’m the one who’s stopped taking the needed actions to attain my goals. And even if life has found a comfy little groove, and another year is over, it’s not time to give up! It’s time to BEGIN! Now is the time to refocus – To find a way. The way! It’s NOT too late. I’m not too OLD. It’s time to LOVE MY LIFE again!

And if I forget, I know I can always “Start Over Love!”

Happy November Everyone!!!

Ok, so life has been very distracting and very busy…but I am still on a very deliberate Pursuit.  I apologize for not keeping my end of the bargain to be consistent in my blog posts.  So, to help draw you back in, I thought I would ask YOU what you would Joyfully Pursue (or are already, if you are one of the lucky ones).  Please feel free to choose more than one option and also feel free to leave your choice in the comments if your choice is not listed (I needed to keep the poll fairly simple).

Hope!

Whew! What a month so far! I finally am getting back into blogging mode. I have decided for this month’s theme to be HOPE.

This month’s word is inspired by the birth of my best friend’s daughter Sophie on June 1, 2011. Her diagnosis was so dire that the doctor’s did not give out much HOPE for her to live outside the womb for more than a day or 2. I’m happy to announce that she has survived beyond that & hopefully much longer. Many prayers & fasting went up for baby Sophie as well as love & well wishes, but I think the most inspirational part is the HOPE that her parents have for their baby to be able to thrive.

I have other friends with miracle babies & teach swimming to some of the most amazing miracle stories.  It’s so amazing to see their stories of HOPE unfold.  Preemies, Autism, Cerebral Palsy & other special needs kids that are accomplishing things that the “experts” said they could never accomplish & doing them well!

Today’s post is not one of long-winded philosophy. I merely want to acknowledge that there are some amazing stories of HOPE in this world & they live among us.  Let’s do our part to inspire & inject HOPE in the world around us, & do what we can to surround ourselves with it.  Your story & the stories around you depend on it.
