As the google doodle cheers, soccer fans worldwide are delighting in the FIFA World Cup getting underway today in Rio de Janiero Brazil!

Matches continue until a championship team will be declared on July 13th and reportedly an estimated 2 billion fans worldwide will be watching today’s first showdown, Brazil vs. Croatia!

Cheers to Vancouver’s sports bars!!–may they get a kick out of a boost in revenues!

Where is it you find yourself today?

A workplace? A schoolyard or on campus? On a vacation or a business trip? Touring or cruising?…

Whatever or wherever it might be, are you wearing the jersey?!….

Whether we know it or not, or even think about it much, life is full of experiences and priceless opportunities!

“Seize the day!”, we’ve all heard that expression!

Carpe diem!–get on the bandwagon, join the team, get with the program!…

Someone once called this the “courage to dare greatly”. Living in the moment that lets those fears that sometimes hold us back be in the background rather than the forefront.

I think you’d agree with me that it’s human nature to try to manage things, to feel in control, avoid disappointments and head off things going wrong.

Is life meant to be “keep your eyes on the goal” or a “race to the finish line” in every moment or can we free ourselves up to assimilate with the team and see, feel and get to know something richer and deeper?

Cheers to a truly, madly, deeply kinda day!!

Wear the jersey!

Thursday!—wholeheartedly!!
