I originally posted this in November 2013, but it still resonates with me, so here it is again. Because some words never lose their power.
Break out of your comfort zone. You were made for more, so much more. Have you purposefully chosen to live in the in between moments? Now’s a good time to take stock of what really matters. Now is a good time to allow discomfort to propel you to the more your life was designed for.
Think of this … You’ll land the dream job, then what? You’ll get the salary you want, then what? You’ll pay off your debts, then what? You’ll do that dream thing you’ve been wanting to for years, and then what? You’ll break barriers and tear down walls that lead to freedom, and then what? Will you have “arrived?”
Let the question sit. Marinate on it. Does it unravel your objections? I sure hope so.
Those questions will come. Perhaps they’re knocking at your down even now. Can you answer with confidence that you lived every pregnant-opportunity-moment to the fullest? Will you be able to boldly say, “I gave it my all every step of the way.”
These moments are all we have. And I am reminded of these moments as I remember uplifting words from Jeff Goins today, “in all of life we are in this space.” I only have the time I have now.
I only have the moments I’m breathing alive – now. I am IN the moment as it is, and I can choose to live in it. I can live it well by choice, or I can louse it up by choice. Whether I’m waiting in line, stopped at a light, waiting for someone to show up, or sitting in silence … I have a choice to live out each moment.
Life was made for living right, fully, intentionally, and in this moment. More wise words I’ve heard from Goins, “We can be who we’d like to be someday now.” Powerful! We can be! Now!
That resonates with me. How can you ensure that every moment gives birth to that which is good, wholesome, empowering, uplifting, and encouraging?
You only have this one life. One brief life on earth to be about the business you were called and uniquely, divinely designed to do.
So … what are you going to do to live better among the in between moments?
