I was going to work on a fashion post tonight but I just found out about the death of an amazing spiritual teacher, whose work I admired, and who touched my soul, and inspired my blog.
Dr. Wayne Dyer was a spiritual motivator, author of many books and had many successful shows on PBS. He appeared on almost every TV talk show, and he was a fave of Oprah’s and he officiated the wedding of Ellen and Portia. He did all this with a start in life at foster homes, and a father who abandoned him as a child.
I would watch him on YouTube from time to time and he always had a way of ringing true what your guts already knew (well for me anyway).
The reason I feel compelled to write this post is because of the words he once said. He has so many eloquent quotes – but this is truly one of my faves, that I have started using with others. The day I heard this, I made the decision to start my blog, “Don’t die with the music still in you.”
It kind of scared the crap out of me to tell you the truth….I started thinking that I need to start playing the music asap!! Well, the truth is I was playing the music already, I just had to package it all together. The music is different things for different people of course…Dr. Wayne Dyer would say, be true to who it is you were intended to be in the physical world. He would call this your spirt – as in “inspiration.” Whether that means being a parent, being a good person, being a successful entrepreneur – whatever that is – just be true to who you are. Listen to your spirit and the hardest part is figuring out what it is telling you. Once you know what it is, the rest is easy (this is Pina talking now). Funny how I was watching him on YouTube just last week and I looked at his upcoming events, as I was hoping he would come to Toronto. I am sorry I never had the chance to see him live, but even so, he truly inspired me and touched my life in such a positive way.
Our time here is so short and our purpose is to find what it is we are gifted with, and share it with the world. Awaken your soul if you already haven’t. Live your life passionately. Be kind to others, forgive, and love, because tomorrow is promised to nobody. If there is anything about your life you don’t like, start to change it. Live with gratitude and start to change the way you see the world.
In honour of Dr. Wayne Dyer, I wanted to share some of his inspiring quotes with you.
There is nothing more stylish than living an inspired life. Stay fabulously inspired my lovelies xoxo
