I think about this quote a lot.
Firstly, I think how deeply grateful I’ll be to have lived to 65 or 75.
Then I think about whether I will have lived that big, juicy creative life of imagination and radical silliness.
Will being perfect really have mattered or will being present and showing up, flaws and all, have mattered more?
Will people’s expectations and judgements have mattered more than my hopes and dreams?
There’s a quote that say the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago and the next best time is now. If your life isn’t feeling big enough, juicy enough or creative enough there are things you can do today to change that.
Change feels like such a big word but you change with every next decision you make and taking one step at a time even if they start off as baby steps. Those steps add up and you find yourself on the journey to where you want to be.
Live the life you were created for.
I’m cheering you on!
