I adore this saying and Wayne Dyer.
I’ve watched his movies and listened to his mesmerizing voice meditations over and over. I think I stick with him because he simplifies life for me through his insights.
When I heard this quote in his movie, The Shift, (highly recommend!), I thought about how it’s so easy to get stuck in the rat race, doing the same thing, day in, day out. Not living your song. You keep doing it, deep inside knowing that there is something better out there waiting for you. Or you may not know what ‘that thing’ is. You just know it exists. And you wait.
Wait for the right time, for when you have enough money, for when the kids are older, for when you gain courage, for when you find time, for when you work it out, for when you retire. I think Wayne was saying to tap into your ‘song’ and live it now.
I believe your song is whatever you want it to be. It’s something unique to you. Your voice. Your thing. Your reason for being. Your purpose. Maybe it’s to be the best mum you can be, or to write a book, or to pursue the career of your dreams, do the philanthropy you always wanted to, or grow fresh organic vegetables. Or a combo of these. Whatever it is. Just do it. Don’t wait.
If like me, you have lots of songs (multifaceted I like to call it), choose one or two. The ones that really make your heart sing. And live them with everything you’ve got each day. And if they change, that’s ok, too. It’s your life after all. No one else’s.
Everyday, for years, I searched and I asked myself over and over – what am I doing here? what’s my purpose? what’s my song? Yep, I did my head in. But the answer was always there, I just had to be still and quiet (thanks Oprah), to hear it.
Quite simply, it’s to be more of me. Every facet of me. On any given day, my life today is a lovely fusion of all my songs. It’s not neat and tidy, it’s messy sometimes, but it’s me and it makes me happy.
Wayne Dyer passed away suddenly from a heart attack in August 2015. We are so lucky he lived true to his own song, teaching us so many simple life lessons and leaving his legacy.
Life can be over in the blink of an eye.
Are you living your song?
