Stop waiting. Stop wishing.
Stop holding out for the perfect thing–or someone.
And allow yourself to taste Life.
I promise you, stagnation isn’t a Life well Lived.
And never mistake stagnation for Peace.
Allow yourself to be uncomfortable.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable.
At least sometimes.
Risk is everywhere.
And in every one.
Yet so are the greatest of treasures.
As I’ve shared before, one of two things will happen.
Either you’ll take the next breath.
Or you won’t.
All creation comes with inherent risk.
So there’s no sense in being frozen while time flows into oblivion.
You might as well breathe deep and smell the rain.
Or the coffee. Or the Italian Tex-Mex restaurant around the corner.
Rest in the Now.
Breathe in deeply and savor what the Universe delights in bringing to your doorstep.
She is so excited for you–if only you could See.
You made it here against all odds.
Maybe take note of that. Like Hey.
Soak up the Miracle of those things showing up in your life now.
Celebrate that with Trust.
You might as well dig your toes deep into Mother Earth and let her hold you.
You might as well look beyond the surface of things and see what a Creative Life, consciously Lived, looks like.
Or, for that matter, a Creative Love.
Have you truly looked at the hearts around you?
Have you dared to bear Witness and see their Souls?
And dared to let them Remember yours?
Have you truly accepted and given friendship–unconditionally?
You may get hurt.
I can’t promise you won’t.
But I can promise that if you genuinely Love and Live…
The means to come back to Life after a crash are also there.
Risk is about Receiving as much as anything.
Stop waiting to Live.
Stop waiting for permission to Exist.
Stop hesitating just when things get good.
Stop judging the Universe when it toddles over and places its gifts in your lap.
Dare to live unconditionally.
Dare to love and give unconditionally.
Dare to receive and feel unconditionally.
Dare to face fear and ego.
Dare to value what others can not see.
Dare to share life, give life, and taste life with others.
Dare to Adventure.
And dare to dig deep and Believe.
Believe that you are powerfully Favored.
Believe that you have all the art supplies you need.
Believe that you deserve to be a Creator.
Before it’s too late.
“The trouble is, you think you have time.”
