As I sit here this morning, writing these words,
I'm reminded of how easy it is to do what I love.
Then I remember how all the days before today and
All the work leading up to this point
Of right now –
That brings me to feel this way.
I've always been doing what I knew I was meant to do at any given time.
It was always up to me.
Sure – outside circumstances were not usually happy with me,
And I can count on more that both hands the number of people in my life that
Didn't believe in me.
That thought I couldn't do it
That I didn't deserve it –
Either because of something small that was taught to them or more likely because
They won't let themselves be REALLY happy.
They're afraid of trying, falling, and failing.
But I chose not to listen to them.
I chose to keep moving forward with all my plans.
And today I can say with a smile on my face;
I'm glad I fought for myself
For this one, wild and precious life (to quote Mary Oliver)...
And that I'm here, right now, writing this to you
Asking You –
What will you do today that you'll thank yourself for tomorrow?
Who will you be – and WHY?
And don't forget to enjoy – this one wild and precious day.
