I believe there are no limits in life except for the ones we create for ourselves. My goal is to help U get in touch with the child within, LEARN how to RECreate and thereby, REcreate yourself into the U you wish to become.
It’s a living book, this life; it folds out in a million settings, cast with a billion beautiful characters, and it is almost over for U. It doesn’t matter how old U are; it is coming to a close quickly, and soon the credits will roll and all your friends will fold out of your funeral and drive back to their homes in cold and still and silence. And they will make a fire and pour some wine and think about how U once were . . . and feel a kind of sickness at the idea you never again will be.
So soon U will be in that part of the book where U are holding the bulk of the pages in your left hand, and only a thin wisp of the story in your right. U will know by the page count, not by the narrative, that the Author is wrapping things up. U begin to mourn its ending, and want to pace yourself slowly toward its closure, knowing the last lines will speak of something beautiful, of the end of something long and earned, and U hope the thing closes out like last breaths, like whispers about how much and who the characters have come to love, and how authentic the sentiments feel when they have earned a hundred pages of qualification.
And so my prayer is that your story will have involved some leaving and some coming home, some summer and some winter, some roses blooming out like children in a play. My hope is your story will be about changing, about getting something beautiful born inside of U, about learning to love a woman or a man, about learning to love a child, about moving yourself around water, around mountains, around friends, about learning to love others more than we love ourselves, about learning oneness as a way of understanding God. We get one story, U and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and the resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn’t it?” ― Donald Miller, Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road
“Let us liberate ourselves from any form of control. Let us focus at the inner drum, where the rhythm aligns with that of our heart. The measure of responsibility, equals to the need for evolution. Just listen, the inner child, let it whisper in your ear.” ― Grigoris Deoudis
Play and leisure time are essential for creativity, innovation and our relationships. They are crucial to your survival and your overall sense of well-being.
A child’s imagination and desire to seek out playful moments is endless. Unfortunately, as adults, we have become programmed to set aside our play time to engage in more “productive” behaviors. We place our dreams and joy on the back burner and, instead, bow to society’s expectations of how we ‘SHOULD’ behave and what we “SHOULD” do with our lives and our free time. We never truly learn to ‘JUST BE’ letting relaxation and leisure fill our senses and our soul. My goals for this blog is to lead U along a path where U begin to take care of YOURSELF and learn to ‘JUST BE’ rather than filling all of your time with ‘PRODUCTIVE’ behavior.
ReCreate-U is all about recognizing the importance of play, leisure and being OK with just ‘being’. It’s about insuring your free time becomes a priority in your busy life.
“Just as our view of work affects our real experience of it, so does our view of leisure. If our mindset conceives of free time, hobby time, or family time as non-productive, then we will, in fact, make it a waste of time.” ― Shawn Achor
At ReCreate-U, I believe U are only as free as U allow ourself to be. Do U feel trapped inside fences whether they are self-imposed or unavoidable obstacles beyond your control? Do U find yourself unable to get off the continuous pendulum of life long enough to take a break and open the gate directly in front of U?
U say U have tried everything and nothing works! If U feel stuck there are reasons behind why the gate remains closed despite your best efforts. If your mind and your actions are not in sync and U don’t resonate with what U need to do or where U need to be in life, U will never achieve the goals U have set for yourself. U will only resonate and be in sync with the world and be up for the challenges U face when U understand the concept of rhythm and being in the groove.
Often in life, there are setbacks that challenge U. U have to be willing to go backwards to find enough momentum to move forward and rise above these barriers. Once U understand the concept of rhythm and being in the groove U will finally become aware of the vast universe which awaits U. Sometimes, in life, it’s all about maintaining the correct speed and a consistent rhythm. If U take it too slow or too fast U will not be able to produce enough kinetic energy to reach your potential energy.
It’s at the peak of your performance when U reach your full potential and achieve self-actualization. Self-actualization is the realization or fulfillment of one’s talents and potentialities, especially when it’s considered a drive or need present within U. Potential energy is the energy that is created when U achieve that child-like feeling of exhilaration and sheer joy and fully realize what U are capable of achieving and becoming. Your potential energy is that “Woo-Hoo” moment when you leap into the unknown and land firmly on your feet!
The stars are within reach! It’s time to learn to RECreate to REcreate U into everything U have ever dreamed of!
