It’s already April!! I can’t even believe how time has flown by. Where did these last few months go?! Craziness. That’s what LA will do to ya, you wake up bright and early, ready for what the future holds and just a moment later, could hardly believe the day is already over.
But something amazing happened a day and a half ago that made me realize life is too short to dread over how time is flying by. An incredible epiphany is what happened. It was one of those moments only prophets seem to experience, but no, so did I. Never have I had such a cathartic release. All my recent misfortunes, confusions and impurities? Gone. Once discharged from my system, the well missed but overwhelming gush of clarity shoved itself back in. My head was finally set perfectly to where it was needed before and I felt so awake, ecstatic, indescribably magical.
I was free for the first time in months.
This, of course, comes down to thanking one exceptional woman who probably doesn’t even know I have a blog, or for that matter, am writing about her and will undoubtedly be going about her days without even realizing she has a new avid admirer. But no matter, I really can’t thank her enough. She has done wonders.
So what did this woman do, you ask? Well she smacked me across the face. No, not literally, but it sure felt real. That painful sting led me to an understanding of why it’s all gone by so quickly. Why I hadn’t truly appreciated the importance of self. It was as if this block of entitlement hindered all my point of views. There was no love for process, or involvement; no appreciation, no patience, just false humility.
But this has all changed, you see, because the underlying sense of self is still apparent. Maybe a bit disguised from being ignored for too long, but it’s still there. And once carbonated, anything is possible. Anything.
Also, I’ve found that worrying about things I don’t have any control over just buries me into this big black hole with no way out. And I promise you, from experience, no one wants to be stuck in there. There’s no point; you can’t see anything and it’s just way too time consuming. Everything is a process, which is probably the most important thing I have to recognize and accept. And I have been! Most of the time :)
So like they all say, no time like the present! Let’s challenge ourselves and make this one unforgettable day! Sound good?!
