I am The Alpha:

Ogunquit, Maine
Outside Johnny’s Oarweed

Jenne Farm
Reading, Vermont

And The Omega:

Surf Club
Madison, Connecticut

Key West, Florida
Mallory Square Sunset

You’ve all heard the:
I’m The Alpha and The Omega.
The Beginning and The End.

Here it is in photos, CJP Photos, my photos
The Sunrise and the Sunset.

What do you do to start your day?
How do you end your day?
What do you do in the between?

How are you living your dash?
You know.  The dash on your tombstone, the between.  It’s how you live between The Alpha and The Omega, The Beginning and The End, The Sunrise and The Sunset that REALLY matter.

Are you paying attention?
It’s how you live your life between that matters!

I’ll say it again!
It’s how you live your life between that matters!

What have you done in the days you’ve lived thus far?
Are you pursuing your dreams?
Are you doing what you WANT to DO or what someone else WANTS you to DO?  When your time comes to transition:
–Will you look back and be able to say I lived THIS incarnation EXACTLY the way I wanted too?  No one convinced me to do something I didn’t want to do.
–Will you transition knowing others were grateful to have known you and called you friend?

That’s what REALLY matters.
Not how much money you acquired.
What matters is what kind of impact you made on those around you.  In one hundred years no one will care how much you owned, but people will remember if you were a good person.

How are you living your dash?

Will people remember you as a good person?  When your name comes up even now what do people say?  If you don’t like what you hear, change.  And don’t say it’s too hard.  It’s too difficult.  If you voice those intentions they will become a self fulfilling prophecy.  It’s the Law of Attraction in action.  Those are negative words.  Remove them from your lexicon.

Living a good life, a happy life, regardless of your circumstances is the way to bring more goodness to you, more happy to you, more joy to you.

Start living your dash, your Alpha and Omega, your Sunrise and Sunset today in joyfulness, in goodness.  Start spreading smiles instead of frowns.  Start spreading sunshine instead of clouds.

Start today.  Because you don’t know how much time you have left.

I’ll start:
Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Back To Fiction
