I was recently asked by a participant and now friend of a workshop I was coaching for, “if you could give advise to young Keone, what would it be”? I didn’t have to think hard at all. It instantly came  to me. I would tell him to wake up and stop dreaming.
So many years I would make wishes and dream about what I would do with all of my talents. Making plans and setting goals but never really chasing anything and hoping that one day my dreams would just come true. That somehow, magically a coin thrown in a wishing well or a passionate thought on a falling star would just make its way into reality and I would go to sleep at night and wake up in the life that I wanted.
I still sometimes find myself waiting for everything to just come to me.
After answering Bianca’s question (please follow her blog www.pointetothenext.com) I realized I didn’t have to go too far back to speak to young Keone because hello I’m not that old!!!! So while i tell my myself, I figured i would tell all of you as well. WAKE up!!!!!
Stop just dreaming about what you can do or BE and get out there and start doing and BEing. Life is still happening all around you and you can’t wait to BE Living, you have to choose to live and seriously living is so much more than just breathing! Even if you have a couple of dreams you feel you are not ready for and want to “sleep” on them a bit, there are things you could BE doing to prepare you for when the time is right. Also keep in mind if you dream to sing, act, dance, cook, bake, take pictures, model, direct, whatever it is, dreams are dreams and the level of making them true are many. Maybe you won’t start on the level that you dream of or maybe you will but don’t base it on level yet base it on actually living your dream.
Many times, really most times, our dreams are the sole purpose we were sent here. Be sure to BE Living in your purpose, I mean unless you think your purpose is to just breathe.

BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful… BE!

As of today social media is world wide and we all have it or have had it in one form or another. It plays a big part in keeping us all connected and allowing us to meet new people. I personally have met many people through some outlet of social media and to this day we are super close. I love the benefits of social media. However I recently was in thought about how many people we friend on social media and make sure we like and love and double tap their posts and comment one way or another. How often we send a message to our loved ones and friends and new friends alike. Send electronic happy birthdays and happy thanksgivings, merry Christmas’s, happy New Years, and I miss you’s. When It comes to real life we don’t often make the phone calls, text instead and though many of our people are right in the same town or area we don’t physically meet up with them as often as we can. The word we can be replaced with I.
I’m so guilty of this.
Where it is important to meet new people and share yourself with the world and to nourish new friendships, it is just as important to build and nurture the relationships on the outside of social media. BE In Touch with everyone in your life and not just electronically. The worst feeling is to be unfriended in real life.

BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful… BE!
