Life on earth is limited. How much time do we have left? Forty years? A fortnight? An hour?
Ideally, the older we get, the less we care about what others think, and the more courageous we become in expressing what we have to say.
What if there were no judging voices or looks to keep us from doing what we want and need to do? What if the Doubt Monsters were suddenly quiet for just long enough that we could finally discern the deep stirrings of our soul?
What if a long-stuck window to the heart were suddenly dislodged, swinging open to let long-hidden light shine out onto the world for a stunning moment of unexpected Beauty?
There is no time to waste.
Yesterday was my birthday. I’m not old, but today I’m a day older and a day closer to death, just like you.
No more wasting time standing by the side of the road, hoping doubts and fear will disappear of themselves, waiting for clarity to clear the way.
Time to act “as if” the way were free and clear already. The truth is, maybe the way IS already clear and we just can’t tell.
There’s no time like the present to be true to oneself.
It’s time to remember, and to act.
It’s time to take that risk.
Are you ready?
That’s not the point.
The moment is – whether you are or not.
