It Begins With You

It Begins With You

What are you doing right now, that is bringing you closer to achieving a dream?

What are you doing right now, that stretches your bubble of comfort until it bursts, until you discover you are capable of much more than you ever thought you were?

What are you doing to improve your self, to bury the past, put a tombstone over pain, to end old habits, and begin healthier ones?

What are you doing right now that puts into practice what you preach, that empathizes with action, what you believe in?

What are you doing right now to love where you live, the earth, the animals, the people close and distant, kindred souls, and even the ones who are supposed to be your enemies?

What are you doing to promote peace, to promote love, to promote equality?

Are you taking to heart, the little moments, are you practicing gratitude, are you choosing joy?

What are you doing right now, that is new, that broadens your scope, your understanding, that invigorates you, challenges you, excites you, that you always desired to do?

What are you doing to live for each day, and not only the weekends?

What are you doing right now, that makes you excited to wake up each morning, even Mondays, that paints a smile on your lips?

But if you are waiting, what is it that you are waiting for?

Are you waiting for life to happen to you?

Are you waiting for the perfect moment, the rain to stop, or the sun to shine, or to feel whole again?

Don’t you know, if you wait for life to happen to you, the one who will meet you instead, is death.

It begins with you. Change begins from within and blossoms outwards, always, an idea, a dream, a planted seed. People, and places, and movies, and music, and events, can all be catalysts, but action begins with you.
No one can live your life for you, but you.
One day, this will all just be a fleeting reel of memories, make it one you’re proud of, that you’re at peace with, make it one worth remembering.
