Every step you’ve taken has been part of the path. You never lost your way. You’ve only been “here.”

There are no steps backwards. There’s no going back in time. You’ve only been finding your way – a perfect succession of “nows” over and over again.

Every fall.

Every mistake.

Every victory and defeat.

They have all led you here, to this place, waking up more and more as the days go by. How could you ever say that these things that happened – while maybe painful at times – were not meant to be if you are finding the gold that lays within them?

They were what you needed to learn. To become. To shift and morph. So here you are.



Rooting and discovering.

And the big question becomes…who are you going to be in your next moments?

The events of the past have turned to fluid paintings and are almost like a dream. How can you nourish them? How can you soften them? How can you take something so dark and bring light to it?

No one can travel this path but you.

The rocks in the river can be moved. The barriers can be broken. The moments can be transformed. They all can shift. But you have to let them. You have to finally let go and step forward.

Trust. Trust in your heart. Trust in who you really are. Then, become.

What you think you are is only a fraction of what you could really be. You have so much in front of you. You have many lifetimes left.

All of that time you spent struggling and battling against the cards that were given to you can be reclaimed as well.

But you have to make the choice. So when you’re a little more excited than afraid, begin.
