Post 3 – Continuing on my journey to inner peace

It’s noon on November 17th, 2009  and I’m actually sitting outside on our deck soaking up the rays on a beautiful Cape Cod fall afternoon. I am surrounded by bright, warm sunshine from a cloudless blue sky. There is no wind today, just silence and peaceful solitude. Life doesn’t get any better than this! I am so grateful to myself, my husband and my immediate family. We all worked very hard to create this paradise. A place to retreat, to relax and renew ourselves. Was it really 40 years ago that I was a young, free spirited high school kid with BIG dreams about what lay ahead for me and my cute boyfriend, who is still my husband!.
While I am proud of my accomplishments, what if I had a magic wand and could go back in time. What would I do differently? The first thought that comes to  mind is  I would have respected the kind, wonderful, caring individual that I am and stopped wasting so much time trying to be someone else. I would have stopped being so afraid of hurting other people’s feelings and let more of the real Linda (my inner spirit Tranquility Sands) come out and play and participate in life instead of watching from the back row. I would have softly but responsibly spoken up. Not to hurt others or be selfish but to share my talents and great ideas. So, present day Linda and gracious readers, as I sit here I say, Be Yourself! Don’t let the control of a parent, spouse, child, illness, job or money keep you down. Go out and make things happen. Continue to speak up! Continue to move from the background to the middle of the circle and share your seacrets. Be inspiring and help stop others from hiding out and doubting themselves. Be Bold and Adventurous. You owe it to yourself and others to be  and share the great leader that you are.
