Sometimes I have to remind myself that “living clean” isn’t just choosing veggies and juices over dairy and gluten.
The ultimate form of cleansing forces us to self-scrub all of our choices, from diet to actions to thoughts.
And eliminate the drugs, downers and distractions that drip dirt on our most daring dreams… Much easier said than done.
I’m still very much a work in progress. But the great thing is, we are all in this together.
Let’s keep rinsing.
There are moments in our lives when the tide turns, the pendulum swings, the music stops, and, for an instant, time stands still…
And then, as we hover between Now and Next, we realize that it’s no longer about the words…
It’s not about the sights or sounds…Not about the senses or sentiments…
It’s about ACTION…DOING…
Taking the chance…Making the leap…Falling into the unknown so we can Rise into the unstoppable…
When we no longer search for our Purpose…we BECOME it…
We become it.
That’s when the real magic happens…that’s when our journey really takes flight…
Now, is that time.
Some chances are too fleeting to feel often.
Some choices are too rare to reoccur regularly.
Opportunities that appear in an instant, and then escape in a flash.
Moments that are meant to be earned, and learned, and appreciated.
Invisible openings into a world of potential and possibility. Unscripted. Uncommon. And unseen…
Today, is that day. Today, Hope comes out of hiding. And Belief meets us for breakfast. Promise drives us to work, and Time is FINALLY on our side…
Three-quarters of our life, we are denied this day.
Today, it’s in our hands. Given and gifted. Wrapped and ready. No strings attached. An extra day to dream, and do, and fix, and finish. An added occasion to begin rebuilding what’s been broken, and start seizing what we’ve let slide.
Twenty-four more hours to claim what’s truly ours…
What will you do with them?
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.
