WOW!!  This whole time I was thinking that reinvention was about doing something completely different than myself, rather it is taking what I already have; what has already been invented within me and making it new!!

 

I LOVE THIS!!  This I can work with!  I am not trying to become something I am not.  I am trying to discover exactly what I am to do with what is already inside of me.  What I did in the past no longer works for me.  And is probably a large reason I stopped doing what I was born to do.

 

I was an entertainer as an older youth.  But all I did was entertain.  There was no life but making people smile and laugh for a moment but I gave nothing that they could take with them and carry in their hearts to last them for a while.  My heart’s desire is to be inspirational! To give people hope and to share my passion and joy through every song I sing.  I can’t just sing a song!  It has to be a song that I have a walked at least a mile in.  It has to be believable.  I have to be believable.  How can we truly affect the people around us if we don’t relate to what we are doing? They will pick up on fraudulence for sure!

 

It is time for me to get back to the roots of who I am, discover those roots, and start building again!  What about you?  Do you need to have a reinvention of your life?  What do you think that could look like?  Have you come to the place where you are ready and willing to find out?
