Time is an interesting thing.
When we’re young it seems to move at a snail’s pace. The minutes feel like hours and an eternity can fit into the space of a day. Just ask any child to wait 15 minutes; it’s like fingernails on a chalkboard to them. They can’t sit still and they have so much to do to fill in those endless days.
Then as we grow it somehow seems to speed up until it seems like it’s zooming by at the speed of light. There is so much we want to do, but not enough time to do it. We can feel overwhelmed at times and at others we’re managing it beautifully. Regardless, in the blink of an eye a year has passed. Or five. How does that happen?
Even more, we believe there is always tomorrow. We tell ourselves we’ll do it tomorrow. Today is no good or the perfect moment or the perfect opportunity hasn’t come along in the form that we desire so now’s not the right time.
Yet tomorrow is never guaranteed. Life as we know it could be gone in an instant. Just like that and our world can be turned upside down. Or we ourselves could be gone in an instant. Our time on Earth is not guaranteed.
There’s no time to waste. We must get down to the business of creating the life we were meant to live. To bring forth into this world the gifts and talents and creations that are uniquely ours. Life has led us to this perfect moment we are in right now.
This moment that may be raw and ugly and you don’t want to feel it. This moment that may be wonderful and joyous and filled with possibilities. This very moment when you may be questioning if now is the right time… If you are ready… If you have what it takes.
You wouldn’t have the dream if you weren’t able to do it. That burning passion, even if it’s just a spark in this moment, tells you that you are here for a big purpose. That the world needs you. That you need you.
We can get so caught up in our daily task list that we forget to live. We can forget to be in the moment. We forget our purpose. We believe whole heartedly in the promise of tomorrow, thinking there will be time for this and that. But there is no time to waste.
Reach for the stars. Jump off that ledge into the unknown. Discover your wings as you feel your freedom while you soar. You can do it. I can’t wait to learn all the incredible things that you will achieve. Unlock your potential… and experience your possibilities!
All the best,
