Tonight, I want to talk about you. All of the yous. The different yous that have existed since you were first conceived until this present moment.
There are so many forces allied against us these days. Entire industries exist to make us feel inadequate so they can sell us the temporary answer. Though their exposure to this same culture, parents and teachers reinforce this vague notion over and over again.,
The result? We're trapped in an endless of cycle of almost being enough..on our good days. Sometimes, we feel completely incapable of achieving anything, don't we?
One of the hardest things for me to have developed in myself was the ability to appreciate who I was in this moment. Not who I could become in the future..but who I was now.
Instead of future thinking, we can learn to accept who we are, what our capabilities are, and more importantly, what our inabilities are. It's a great gateway to self knowledge.
So, start in the moment. Give up planning on what you can become in the future for a few minutes. Act now, do what you can now. Put it on the page. Then, it will exist in the real world where you can refine and develop it.
The point is...let's just shut up..and get started.
