History is made tomorrow

What an incredible day tomorrow will be.  What an incredible day TODAY is that as a nation we’ve come this far.  Happy Martin Luther King Day.

September 11th was a day that I know many of us remember where we physically were, who was with us and how we felt watching what we all knew in our hearts was a day that was both historic and heartfelt, may never be forgotten and how as a community of people no matter where we lived we all came together.

You may also remember tomorrow just as vividly.  I urge you to watch the inauguration tomorrow live, take time out of your busy day, or record it and watch it when you return home.  To me, it isn’t about who you voted for (although many of us are excited about Obama), it is so much more.  To me it reveals how much North America has changed or how many of us are willing to step forward, stick our necks out and make change happen in our own lives.  Hope, peace, good and service to do our part IS within us.

As a nation or individually we haven’t always shown our best side, that is human, but this election of hope, as well as the bravery and selflessness of the community that pulls together after tragedy, proved to me that what we all want is not so different, that we really should not feel so small or alone, how much we need each other but more than that, how much we need to help each other.  It also proved to me that we CAN show our best sides to others much more often, and that it is time to individually STEP UP and BE who we know in our hearts we can be.

This IS the year to be inspired.  This is the year to be of service to others.  This is the year to be YOU and to reach for what is in your heart and bring it into your life.

As you’re watching, I urge you to notice both your thoughts and feelings, surround yourself with friends and family and share your inspiration or quietly be present, because remembering how you felt about what is possible for you and for others – that inspiration is what will fuel your dreams…. your life in 2009.

Wishing you success and happiness,
