I've been told to set goals, make vision boards, write down what I want; exactly how I want it, specifically and clearly, deep from within my desirous heart... ad infinitum. And it has worked, somewhat. Not 100%, not all the time, here and there. A little of this, a little of that. But somehow, a little bit of doubt and a little bit of uncertainty can sabotage a dream -- big time!
Yesterday,however, I had an aha moment.
Have you ever had a time in your life, when something you dreamed about having or experiencing happened? It was bigger than you could have imagined, better than you ever believed... it was the stuff that grace and gratitude is made of and just the fact that it happened, was enough fuel for years of faith.
Years ago, as a high school dropout, I went to visit a friend at Stonybrook University on Long Island, NY. While on the campus, I saw a sign that said, "Undergraduate Admissions." I heard myself say, silently, "I'd love to go to Stonybrook University." It was an innocent thought energized by a deep love for education -- and unfortunately, an education that I could not get in public school. And to my surprise, only an hour after uttering those words, I was accepted on the spot with a handshake and a hearty welcome.
Years later, another thought about traveling to India, turned into a great two week adventure throughout the country.
And just last night, I realized, I am living a thought I had a few months ago. I never said I want - I need - I have to create or manifest or attract. I said, I'd love to..... That was it, those were the words, I'd love to... so go ahead, fill in the blank with what you would LOVE TO... live, do, see, feel, experience ... and trust me.... Love makes life happen just the way you feel it!!!

While sitting in the Cancer Center at the University of Michigan, waiting for the oncologists report from a suspicious CAT scan that I took on a lark, I had the sudden realization that life is happening now. I'd been putting off my dreams and wishes for a couple of years, thinking, they're there, I'll get to them just as soon as I finish... and I could fill in a hundred things, all the time. Waiting in the doctor's office, a funny sense of urgency began to take over.
Since that day, almost three months ago, I have gathered friends old and new around me, and we have come together with the sole purpose of creating a powerful and passionate radio show, Sterling Spin. Many of the people and events that are part of creating this experience have been magical; filled with the very energy and dedication I am ready for in my own life. Now I can share my journey with you and maybe, just maybe, help you have the energy and dedication in your life, to honor your dreams and wishes and make them come true. Tune in and listen every Thursday, Friday and Saturday on AM 1470 WWNN radio in South Florida, listen live on the Internet, or download the archives at SterlingSpin.com. Get ready for smart talk, real alternatives and the truth, straight up. I have so much to share.
