Millions watched the 100 year birthday celebration for Frank Sinatra last night, it was extraordinary. My primary take-away is that Mr. Sinatra loved music, people and life. He made no apologies for living his way and that is what I submit for you to do in 2016-Live your life your way.@franksinatra
His smile, Sinatra’s persona, his life of inclusion-were all done his way. The benefit of living your life “your way” is that you authentically live YOU and only you.
You suspend seeking approval from others, you instead know yourself intimately and choose to live as you creatively dictate.
You forego personal vacancy, instead you kindly occupy your own life space.
You cancel imitation and chart your purposed destiny.
Be your own “Chairman of the Board” and live your life and love your way!
Miracles in life often mean that you learn how to “hoop it up.” When you live life as a normal, routine existence it delivers safety since your habits are rarely disturbed. But, what happens when that “safety” that is grooved into your being is shaken, when NORMALCY is disrupted? (photo found at http://www.thecurestartsnow.org)
That question was answered by Lauren Hill on CBS Sunday Morning. This nineteen year old is chasing her dream, living her life in spite of the terminal brain tumor. She wants to live long enough to play her first game next Sunday at Mt. St. Joseph College where she is a freshman. This game is sold out, 10,000 tickets were sold in one hour to support #22. “She feels like she would be a quitter” if she stops playing the basketball game that she loves.
Lauren Hill disrupts safety, she is committed to hoop it up in spite of cancer. Her favorite charity is http://www.thecurestartsnow.org (a foundation to cure pediatric brain cancer) and she stills gets up at 5:00 in the morning to practice drills with her team. She defies normalcy.
Lauren Hill as she takes to the court on November 2 at 2:00pm in the NCAA season opener as Mount St. Joseph University takes on Hiram College at the Xavier University Cintas Center. Let us all cheer for Lauren by living beyond your usual normalcy scope; instead “hoop it up.”
How do you “hoop it up”? Please post your comments below, we want to know you you live your dreams–thank you.
