Now is the time for all of us to become free of the fear that has kept us from joy, from creativity, from peace, from the courage to be honest. It is time to do the inspired thing, which is to live our life's purpose.

~ Joseph Bailey


  1. I read this at a time I needed it most. Inspiration. You are lovely.

  2. That's why I have given notice to my current employer, and will be running away with the circus.

    Anyone who is not living his or her purpose must not be very content. I believe I am living my purpose, and I do have joy in my life, and I am certainly content.

    Thanks for the inspired quote.

  3. Glad that I could share this quote. It actually "spoke" to me and gave me help in refocusing myself.

    Edith, your running off to the circus reminds me of the story of the man who for years cleaned up after the Elephant act and one day a friend said, "Why don't you quit shoveling all this elephant poop? I am sure you could get another job outside of the circus."

    The man shook his head and said, "What and quit show biz?"

    Fear can sometimes be crippling, but when one conquers the fear, the feeling of accomplishment is oh, so worth it.
