This has been an interesting week.
It began on a high note Monday with the first of my free calls which was really amazing! Almost 100 women have signed up for the calls, which will continue this Friday and Sunday. If you haven’t had a chance to sign up yet, you can do so here! I know how busy life can be so I am doing one during the week and one on the weekend.
There is something that happens when in a single minute, we recognize that we are not alone. That what we feel is universal and that coming together and releasing our isolation is liberating. Please join me for these special calls!
As the week went on I found out about the tragic death of a young woman, a bartender/waitress at my local cheers. It’s a place where everyone does know my name and who I am; and no matter what day or night I stop in, I always have friends and warm smiles to greet me.
Sarah was a long time dedicated bartender at this small, intimate restaurant and one that I enjoyed talking to. Apparently she died in her sleep from an aneurysm, to be found when her roommate, who also happened to be her co-worker, tried to wake her in the morning.
On top of the obvious tragedy of it all, it has had me thinking about just how fragile and unpredictable life is.
Sarah often seemed quiet and had shared her recent break up and resulting struggle to figure out what she really wanted.
Again I found myself reflecting on how, for many of us, waiting until a crossroad, tragedy or crisis happens is how we approach making change in our lives. We want it, we crave it, but we put it off until tomorrow; when we are better prepared for, more available and further committed to taking action.
So I ask you, what would you do if you were only given a short time to live?
No, I am not asking to be dramatic or inspiring, but rather, I am asking you to look inside of yourself….honestly, and feel the urgency in what you desire.
Would you quit your job?
Would you do things differently in your marriage or relationship?
Would you pursue a dream or passion?
Would you sell your home and move to the place you have always wanted to live?
Would you take your dream vacation?
If you allowed your soul to tell you what it wants, what would you do?
And the even greater question, why aren’t you doing anything about it?
I don’t mean quitting your job, divorcing your husband or selling your home¦but rather, what are the smaller steps that you can take right now that will lead you towards your deepest, truest desires?
While you may not see it yet, there are more ways to move towards all that you desire than you can possibly imagine; you just have to want to move.
I know that you may feel frightened.
You may not know how.
You may think that you don’t have the time, money, energy or ability.
I get it. I have been there.
But you only live once, and you just don’t know what tomorrow may bring.
So I ask you, what would it mean if you found the courage and the commitment to take even one step to bring you closer to what you want?
Your time is now.
In memory of Sarah,
