I was walking the beach this morning lovin’ life & anticipating all the cool things on the horizon, all the while appreciating exactly where I am & reflecting on how far I’ve come. As I walked along the shoreline, I noticed a baby no more than a year & a half old sitting alone playing in the sand. I thought, “Where in the world is this child’s parent?” I looked around & saw who I assumed was his mother, a good ways away, completely distracted by the lure of the ocean & all it’s treasures. (The shiny objects that keep us from focusing on our highest priority). While I pride myself on my ability to reserve judgment, in that moment I launched into the whole laundry list of worst case scenarios of what could happen to that child left unsupervised, & ultimately how it would affect everyone else as a result.
All the sudden I had this epiphany…In that moment it was as if my Angels hit me over the head with a coconut. I heard my “Higher” voice say, “Don’t judge Audra, you have been neglecting your baby too!” “Dayum!” I thought as I immediately knew he was referring to my Book, my Blog & the other important aspects of my mission & purpose.
While my intentions are pure & I know it’s of massive importance, I haven’t been giving the proper care, attention & focus needed for my babies to thrive. I needed this check up from the neck up & this blog post is the milk from that coconut bonk!
If we took the time to look inward at our own lives, rather than wasting precious energy dishing on the likes of (or I should say dislikes of) Miley Cyrus twerkin’ out with her foam finger at the Teddy Bear Circus; we might actually produce something great that the world needs & is waiting for. It could be a book, a project, a business you want to start. It could simply be raising a stellar human being or nurturing a precious relationship that you would be devastated if you were to lose.
Sooooo, I am going to ask YOU….Who or What is the Baby in YOUR life that YOU are neglecting?….When would NOW be a good time to pamper, protect & produce the best version of it through your contribution & attention?….AND….What will you & the rest of the world miss out on if you don’t?….
