friday's confession: we've got it all wrong.
It’s not about living OMG THE VERY BEST POSSIBLE LIFE THAT YOU CAN.
It’s not about KICKING THE SHIT OUT OF FEAR AND GOING OUT THERE AND FUCKING DOING IT.
It’s not about GROWING A BIG GLITTERY PAIR OF BALLS AND DEMANDING THE LIFE OF THE DIVA THAT YOU ARE.
It’s about now. Right now. Thisverymoment.
It’s about the quiet. The contentment.
It’s about the choices you make. The ones you come to in the middle of the night when the rest of the world is asleep and you are awake with a fire buring in you and you decide that when you rise, when it’s time to start your day, you will do it anew. And you will never look back.
But to everyone else, nothing changes. It doesn’t look different. Because it’s inside you – this decision. This knowing. This power.
And when that choice gets made – the one that lights you up, that’s when you start living the shit out of your life, in every single moment.
It’s the mug that reminds you of the time you danced naked on the beach in Mexico. It’s the half and half instead of skim because life is too short not to savor your coffee in the morning. It’s the silent prayer for grace when the world seems stacked against you.
That’s the secret of what it’s all about: the lowercase moments that make up our character, the every day moments that make us who we are, that have the ability to culminate in a life well-lived.
Which side of the choice are you on?
