Live you life with arms wide open ...

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten 
(Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield)

That's the chorus or is it known as a refrain? I'm never entirely sure but it matters not the message is the same.

How many times do we wait for someone to make our lives worthwhile? when really we should be living life with our arms wide open.

I'm sure there as been a time when you were out for a summer stroll when the skies have opened and the rain drops have descended and instead of running for shelter you really, really wanted to dance in the rain. The song tells us to feel the rain on our skin, no one can feel is for us - and it's true. No, no one can feel the same raindrop you are feeling. Once it drops its has fulfilled the measure of its creation and its work is done. 

So if we think just about water, what does it do? It gives life,to  plants, trees, people, the earth. Without it we would not survive. Without the rains of life we would not live. We may survive but without the rains of life we would never fully understand all that God can bless us with, but we need to open up and let it in and live a life that is yet unwritten.

I've been pondering two (of many) things this week; what would i do if i could not fail? and what inspires me? 

A little list of Inspiration ~

- The beloved Queen Elizabeth II pausing, head bent after she laid a wreath at a war memorial
- The Dalai Llama praying before he tasted the food after he was asked to judge the Australian masterchef.
- Mary Magdalene, Mary Christ's mother and the other women who wept at His cross
- My sister Julie and her daughter Charlotte

What would i do if i couldn't fail? ~ write a book and lose weight

What inspired you this week? What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
