Yesterday, I briefly accepted the fact that I might die.
That tomorrow would not come.
That the hopes and dreams and ambitions I had been talking about just moments before with friends at Metta would be left behind, unfulfilled.
I thought about my family far away in the US. Knowing they’d still be asleep and unable to speak aloud to make a phone call, I sent them text messages to let them I love them.
I worried about my business partner and all the things that she would need to pick up in my absence and hoped she’d be able to go on without me. I texted her, and she kept me calm and positive.
I remembered the past 38 years of my life, grateful for everything and regretful of nothing.
I experienced the longest hour of my life. And then it came to an end.
a new day has come
I am alive. I am safe. I am determined to keep going.
As I have shared with you in my recent blog posts, I have big plans for 2019, both personally and professionally. 2019 is the year that finally felt like MINE. The one I’ve been waiting for since leaving London in 2016.
And it still feels that way. Living to see another day, for me, serves as an affirmation that I am on the right path and that path is not to be halted. I have a duty to fulfill all that I have set out to achieve.
My time is now.
and so is yours.
Tomorrow is not guaranteed for any of us. And even if tomorrow does come, our time on this Earth is so, so short.
Don’t put yourself in a position where you wait to do the things you’ve always wanted to do.
Your time is NOW.
Stop putting off your dreams…
Quit that job. Cut off toxic relationships. Start your business. Take that trip. Get that tattoo. Take risks. Tell people you care. Forgive. Love. Learn. Grow. Evolve.
