It is often that I find myself with so many opportunities and inspiration I begin to worry. A fear of missing out leaves me scrambling after pieces when what I need is grace and strength of conviction to move through each action mindfully. To simply Enjoy! One great outlet in my life is babysitting: I learn so much from the earnestness of children, when they sleep I get time to sit and think things through, and I can afford it. Right now that's where I am, these words came out and then the list I carry in my heart and head.
Maybe you can relate: My life is all one. It should be balanced within itself to satisfy and inspire me so that I may satisfy and inspire the world.
If the world, or myself, were always satisfied then there would be no life or need to express inspiration. So, I will always be in pursuit of balance and must find peace within that chaos. Still I strive to learn, to become more efficient, to experience people and success. It is not my face, name or achievements that define this life I claim. It is what I choose within the flux, how I face my fears, how I face your fears. Each coming moment is an opportunity to live. Each action or inaction a complete expression of a life evolving. So I won't settle on the past with my could-have-done-betters, nor in the future with my list of to-dos. I will rise to the call of the present and offer it my best interpretation. Again and again. Honestly and actively until rest and approval. There is no failure but inaction.
