Out of the Shadows

I haven't blogged for a long time. I guess it is these times we are living in. LOL What are these times? It's our life for goodness sake! This is not the dress rehearsal.

I was moved beyond compare by the talent and courage of Susan Boyle. She stepped out of the shadows and has in a moment of courage splashed all over the world with her huge heart and wonderful talent. If you have not seen her please watch this .
She is 47 years old. She has been singing since she was 12. She has never been kissed. She cared for her Mother till her Mothers death at age 91. She lives alone with her cats. Her church didn't even know she could sing. She has now stepped out to world wide recognition for her talent, courage and is an inspiration to many.
I challenge all of us to step out in an act of courage.
What is your dream? How have you held yourself back? This has been a time of reflection for me and has inspired me to step out of the shadows in every way. This a wonderful time to be alive. Whatever you believe and hold dear may today be the day that you step out of the shadows and shine.
Enjoy and Thank You for taking the time to listen. Love always, Lilli

Hi Lilli,

I love the video you shared. What a voice!! Good for Susan for stepping out. Glad your 50th birthday singing inspired you to step out. Life is meant to be lived and not to hide.

It is so great when someone says, Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead...I LOVE it! I, for one, am glad to be able to speak my mind and not worry about the consequences...that is what freedom and life are all about!

Debra(Lilli Blue),
I love to read your blogs, because no matter how far you retreat into yourself , no matter how far you travel to find yourself, no matter what life throws at you; at the end of the day you always come back to center and remain true to yourself. You are a woman of many facets and talents, a real gift to others from God.
Fifty is Nifty!!!
God Bless,
