'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]
Last Daily Message, You Better Be Good To Me
It's a Good thing that I wake up a happy camper because this morning's Musical DLG™ (Musical Download from God™) called, "Born To Be Alive" by Patrick Hernandez came through with enough rhythm and repetition that I went from a dead sleep to dancing in the sheets. Almost immediately I was reminded of how easy it is to fall into the dead space and turn into the walking dead.
Most of us are familiar with some form of dead space in our personal or professional life. Right off the top of my head I can think of many references to 'the dead space' on the radio, in physiology, surgery, radar, weaponary and even observation where nothing is witnessed, occurring or accomplished. It's just that area of in-between where nothing is occurring. We might even witness the dead space or dead weight in our everyday lives. Regardless of where or when we know of the dead space to be, it doesn't have to envelope us and turn us into the walking dead, but all too often, it does.
I live my Life fairly outloud, meaning that my switch is flipped ON. I am physically active, deliberately productive, verbally communicative, spiritually connected and socially engaged. I also 'show up'. If we are friends on Facebook, then you already know this about me. Some days are better than others. I Love and I like, a lot more than I don't. I'm also pretty darn clear that this is my Life to live, which helps keep my judgment about others in check. I don't care if you tattoo your face, spray paint your hair blue, wear strips with plaid, wear white in the winter or wear Ugg's in the summer. Whatever makes you feel ALIVE and engaged is what matters.
This song inspired me, to remind you, that you were born to be alive. I take it as a gentle reminder to myself as well, to keep putting myself out there. Whether I am the example, the influencer or the motivator, I was born to be ALIVE! God has not called me back to Himself yet, I am still here, and so are you. You are not the walking dead and you are not sheeple. You are ALIVE and you are people. Now get out there, go place yourself UP! and practice being you.
