There was this one time where I really cared what people thought.
So, I didn’t write. I didn’t teach yoga or do reiki. I didn’t do environmental work. I certainly didn’t talk about chakras and I didn’t mention topics that rocked the boat or danced outside of social norms. I flew under the radar.
And I bored the crap out of myself…and probably others.
There was this one time, I really wanted people to like me.
Well, that was rather vanilla. And I’m not sure people actually knew I was alive.
There was this one time I didn’t believe in myself or that I had any gifts worth sharing with the world.
That was just sad.
Then, I realized the “one time” is NOW.
Life was not getting any longer, I was not getting any more like-able by living like a piece a wet cardboard, and change sure as heck wasn’t going to get more comfortable.
So, I got used to being really uncomfortable. A lot. And I started living my life.
I think about all the quirky and life-altering, soul-shaping events I would have missed out on if I stayed on my original path and hadn’t realized that life is happening now: being a park ranger on an island…off the coast of Ohio (true story), living in a 300 square foot cabin in Grand Teton National Park and getting trapped inside by moose, competing in the Women of The World International Poetry Slam (while pregnant), working on a ranch, going on a vision quest, being a parent, opening a yoga studio, starting a revolution with my closest friends (more to come on this).
What have you been putting off? Where are you being pulled?
This is it, my friends.
Right now is the “one time”.
