Don't let the time pass without experiencing it. Don't let another day pass without feeling the sun on your skin. Without watching the sky with wide eyed wonder. Don't let another day pass without moving your body in joyful motion. Without watching a tree swaying in the wind. Don't let another day pass without feeling joy in your heart. Without looking deeply into the eyes of the one you love.
Don't let another year go by, filled with "should have"s and "If only"s. Don't let another year pass, feeling ashamed, deflated, hopeless, afraid, and empty. Fill your life to the brim NOW. Fill up every moment with rich experience. Create a life that you can be proud of. A life that by its very existence, creates ripples of good in the surrounding world. Create a life that your heart is happy with. Create a life that finally appeases the beautiful wild child in your soul that screams "Let me out! Let me live! Set me free!!!!".
Don't let another moment pass by, without thanking the Universe/God/Buddha/Allah/The-Creator/Your-Lucky-Stars (or your version thereof) for the breath in your lungs, for the beating of your heart, for the sparkle in your eye.
You've been telling yourself for far too long that you can't. That you shouldn't. That it's too selfish, unrealistic, risky, scary, too difficult, too complicated, too outrageous. I'm calling bullshit. If you do not gather the courage now, to take the steps and make the life your heart desires, it will eat away at you for the rest of your life. It will act like an acid, slowly corroding the fibre of your being. It will grow into a gnawing beast of regret, slowly and methodically eating away at your joy. Do not let fear and regret consume your life. Let go of whatever you are telling yourself as to why you can't live the life you want. There is always a way. Get to work. DO.IT.NOW!
Your ambitions and passions are not random. They are within you for a reason.
Don't let another dream pass you by. Grab hold of your life. Decide what you want to do. Make a plan. And get to work living your hand crafted life.
As a citizen of this beautiful world, I beg of you: Share your gifts. Share your wonder. Share your laughter. Show us your heart. Let us hear your truth. The truth that has laid buried for too long in the depths of your soul. Bring it out into the light. We need you. Let yourself be seen, heard, and felt. The world needs you, now more than ever. We need your brilliance. We need your passion. We need your light. We need your love!
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain
