What Would You Do Today If You Knew You Wouldn’t Live To See Tomorrow?

Today I was inspired by the story of Zach Sobiech. A young man – a teenager – a kid… Who found out he had cancer and only a few months to live and decided to live big bold and unapologetic in his greatness. He wrote and recorded songs, became YouTube sensation and a rock star, loved profoundly, left great memories and savored every precious moment with his family and friends. Zach said “I don’t want to die when I have so much to do” and then he did all he could in the time he had left. Funny, before he was diagnosed he was planning to go to college and matriculate into society quietly… But his sickness changed his view. He said “most people have dreams and push them aside saying they won’t ever happen. I don’t want to do that.”

I’m not dying… But I learned a valuable lesson from Zach’s life. I learned that I don’t wanna wait to enjoy my life and times, to live fearlessly, to be authentic and selfless. I don’t wanna live a shell of an existence because of fear or disbelief. I learned that I must be everything I’m supposed to be (again) -and why. The world needs to know I was here. God needs to know I did what He sent me here for.

Stepping Outside Of Your Comfort Zone!

 
 
WOOOOOOWWWWW!!!! I’m realizing all I’ve learned over the last 10 months and I have grown so much! But, once again, it’s time to step outside of my comfort zone and grow.
That is truly the only way to grow. To really just aept that it’s not always comfortable or easy – and I don’t have to know EVERYTHING first, it’s okay to just learn and grow sometimes.

I think of it playing in the middle of the keyboard because it’s safe. There is comfort in staying in the familiar things we learned first. There is also safety in keeping it simple. The when you keep it simple, you don’t grow. What we really need to understand is how much we need the uncertainty and difficulty of growing and expanding in order to become a better, more aware version of ourselves.
The thing is we allow barriers to come in and stop us. We start questioning ourselves as if we’re supposed to have all the answers to all the unknown variables BEFORE we launch out. Now, we aren’t supposed to go out totally unprepared, but we have to realize that we can’t know everything before we come to the lesson.
 
 
Allow yourself to accept that you will be afraid, and you will go through some places of discomfort. Know that it’s the process. Know it’s a process that will result in you having a fuller life. After the lesson, you will be equipped to serve the planet more effectively – however you are supposed to.
 
 
Be brilliant
