A Call To Action

Don’t lean in…dive. From the high dive. Screaming all the way down if need be. When the other shoe finally drops, it’s not time to stop. It’s time to dance. Or just fuck shoes entirely. Go barefoot. Love immensely. Fail spectacularly because you know that there is no such thing. There is just getting up and doing it again. The music does not stop. So do it. That thing your mind says is a risk, rock that. Don’t stop even when you hit the old points of no return. Be afraid, because who cares. It may be scary. People might laugh. You could be seen. And? Really? That is what you are going to let stop you?

This is the time you get. It is precious. Are you willing to waste it on excuses? Check in with yourself. Is it ethically sound? Will it cause harm to yourself and others? Do you want it? If your answers were no, no and yes, then begin. Or renew. But hop to it. Life is an amazing chance that you get. It is about creating. That desire to show up big is real. It is the call to have the most remarkable human experience available to you. Your responsibility is to make it happen.

The voices of fear…of doubt and shame. You don’t have to believe them. You can love them. Listen to them. But not follow them. You do not have to play this game. You can up level this life from beautiful to magnificently radiant. The voices that tell you hosts of negative crap are wrong. There is no requirement that you believe them. At the very least know that they are a story. That anything that spins around in your mind was planted and grew overtime. It is not the truth. Any part of you that is willing to engage in an argument of any sort is not the deepest, most authentic part of you. That presence, the truth of who you are, has no need to prove itself. It simply is. You can dive into that piece. Let it run over you until it is you once again.

In the mean time, act as if. As if you know exactly who you are and desire to be. As if you are ready to stake your claim on the future of your creation. This life is too short and to full of adventure for anyone to waste it listening to the same old story. You don’t have to fix it. You don’t have to process it. You don’t have to do anything except to answer the call that beats inside of you and take action. Over and over. No matter the story you tell yourself. No matter the fears that come. Just act. And enjoy.
