WAKE THE FUCK UP!
I’m pretty sure that if Leia could speak, that would’ve been the words coming out of her puppy mouth at 6 am as she was whining at the bedroom door.
Those are also the words I’m telling you on this Wednesday morning …
Seriously, wake the fuck up!
Anyone that knows me or has worked with me understands that I’m compassionate and empathetic BUT, I also sprinkle in a dose of tough love and real talk when necessary.
Well, today it feels necessary.
What are you waiting for??
2020 has been the ultimate learning opportunity in timing …
In that … the perfect time doesn’t exist. The universe doesn’t give a fuck about your plans. Your life can literally change in a moment.
So let me ask again … what are you waiting for??
You can accept the fact that right now is all you have. That the perfect moment is not going to walk up and slap you in the face and tell you that you’re “ready.”
Or, you can continue to believe this lie that you keep perpetuating and waiting for shit to magically happen.
How’s that been working so far?
Look, there’s a whole bunch of shit that you can’t control … I get it.
Trust me, there’s a million things that I wish I could control that I can’t.
Doesn’t it make sense to focus and prioritize the things you CAN control?
Your happiness is controllable.
Your fulfillment is controllable.
Your sense of purpose is controllable.
Your actions are controllable.
Your beliefs are controllable.
Your results are controllable.
Your body is controllable.
Your health is controllable.
Your success is controllable.
Now, there are certain aspects of those examples that aren’t exactly controllable.
For example, when it comes to your results … you can’t control the exact results but you sure as fuck can control the process and actions to get there.
Which means you should probably invest in a process that you enjoy, that challenges you, and one that accounts for your individual needs.
At the bare minimum, how about stop falling back into a process that makes you miserable?
I know it’s cliche but you’ve got one life and one body … it’s worth making the most of them.
Stop waiting for the right time. Stop waiting for the right opportunity. Stop waiting until your schedule changes. Stop waiting until your kids are older. Stop waiting until after your trip. Stop waiting until after the weekend. Stop waiting until …
Make a choice now.
Commit to yourself.
Commit to your own happiness.
Commit to the person that you are and the person that you want to be.
Time will pass regardless.
You’ll either look back with gratitude or you’ll look back with regret.
Make the decision that the future you will thank you for.
It’s never too late. It’s never the right time. It’s never going to change unless you actively change it.
I say this because I love you and I want to see you succeed.
So, accept this wake up call and take action now.
That’s also your choice.
And, I still love you anyway.
