If we can just be still.
Just soak in the moment.
Let the truth of the night and the trail of the light hold us without judgment or jury.
If we let ourselves fall deeper inside ourselves… Then maybe we’ll find that love never left us.
And love doesn’t need to be found.
Maybe we’ll see that it was here, waiting for us to come home.
I’ve learned that passion provides the spark, but without perseverance, you can never get to where you want to go.
It’s your self-induced resilience and tenacity and belief that keeps you going when the walls are crumbling and the sky begins to fall.
It’s an unbreakable commitment to a mission that’s greater than you, a vision that’s larger than you, and a purpose that has nothing to do with you… that’s what enables you to inch forward.
And I really do believe that’s the biggest lesson. Just to keep going. Even when it’s hard or dark or painful. Even when your toes are tired and your compass is broken.
Get out of your own head.
Your mind is the only trap you need to escape.
See things bigger and bolder and more ripe for the taking.
You can manifest what you want if your mind is strong, your heart is true, your vision is clear and you’re willing to work your ass off for it.
Complaining. Worrying. Sitting. Sulking.
That shit don’t work. Go DO.
It’s not about changing who you are. It’s about evolving who you become. Life is a work in progress. And we are at our best when we try to be a little better, a little smarter, a little quicker, each day. The competition is always internal, no matter the noise on the outside. But learning ourselves is the toughest part. It’s where everything breaks, and begins.
Starts with our values. Once we find them, they should stay steady. But everything else is in constant flux. We discover and rediscover our purpose. We write and rewrite our principles. Our passions sway over time. We step in and out of relationships, and fall over and under love.
Colors fade and settings change.
The journey is not straight, or narrow. The climb is not easy. And we often look nothing like when we started.
And really, that’s the lesson.
That’s the point… Staying firm to our foundation, while letting the fragments fray as we go. Morphing into something greater, without losing our original essence. Bear into dove. Rabbit into wolf. Caterpillar into dragon…
Unleashing the animal within.
Evolving. While staying true. That is our challenge and our opportunity. That is why we walk this walk. But no matter what the compass reads, the key is that we‘re always moving. Learning is a specific direction. And forward is the only way.
Grow as we go. And then keep going…
Grateful for a beautiful 2018. Ready to keep going. Happy New Year everyone.
