What I want you to know is…
I’ve waited too long for most things.
It’s ok on some levels like where I was a late bloomer.
But I’m talking about waiting until everything was perfect or
waiting for the right time,
waiting for him to show up,
waiting to say I love you,
waiting for him to be ready,
waiting for the right age,
waiting for enough money,
waiting to have a baby,
waiting for a sign,
waiting until I wasn’t so busy,
waiting until I gained confidence or
waiting until I lost five pounds,
waiting until I received approval,
waiting until they said I could,
waiting until there was time,
waiting until my marriage got better,
waiting for my birthday,
waiting until Spring Break,
waiting until Summer,
waiting to move away from snowy Winters,
waiting to travel somewhere I’d never been like Australia or Greece or New Zealand,
waiting until I got that big break,
waiting for the tipping point,
waiting for others to go first,
waiting for the weather,
waiting until I knew enough people,
waiting to take a chance on love,
waiting until I had proof it would all work out,
waiting until I had enough knowledge,
waiting until I knew enough, was accomplished enough, was successful enough, or
waiting until it would be easy.
What are you waiting for?
What I learned is that time will run out. People don’t really talk much about this anymore it seems. But the reality is that “right timing” is vitally important. We can’t just lead energy we must follow it too, and be awake enough to tell when to choose one over the other. I have run out in certain ways and my hope is that I can save you from doing the same thing.
The biggest regrets in my life relate to waiting. I waited for my marriage to get better. It was incredibly toxic and denied my chances to have a baby for all those years. I waited until I met the right guy to have a family when I could have looked at doing it on my own. I waited to move from snowy winters because I was afraid of disappointing my family. I waited to travel to Australia and New Zealand until last year.
Right now is the time to wake-up and choose how you want to live your life. At any time you have full access to what I call a Passion Passport. There is no lengthy application process or special visa you have to apply for. There is no waiting period.
It’s yours right now.
Let’s get started.
You can come along with me for the ride. You can even sit next to me in the front seat.
But you have to promise you will get out at the right stop for you to continue your own journey guided by your true north. Admire my life, be inspired by it even, but stay focused on filling your own passport.
Well buckle up, it’s going to be an incredible journey where we will meet amazing people and experience incredible beauty and slay dragons and get lost and get found. Expect tears and laughter to be shared. You’ll be left wondering and delighted and face fears you didn’t know you had.
But you’ll feel more alive than ever because each day is sparked with joy. Don’t wait.
Let my life be both a warning and an example.
Start before you’re ready, right here, right now.
And today, please tell the people you care about you LOVE them. For this we must never ever wait.
Love yourself, love your day, love your life,
