Grace Judson, friend, colleague, cool coach and founder of Svaha Concepts sent me the article she wrote yesterday in which she shared the raw impact of learning about the unexpected death of her friend’s sister. And how the Universe tapped on her shoulder with the question: What are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?
In the face of the undeniable truth that your time in this life is finite, what are you waiting for?
As Grace shared “What is shockingly clear to me in this moment is that all of my hesitations, fears, uncertainties, and thoughts about “As soon as X happens, I’ll be happy, or be able to do Y, or stop worrying, or whatever” are meaningless.”
What are the stories you weave that say…no…I can’t…not yet…I don’t have time…I can do it tomorrow; or I’ll do it when (fill in the blank)?
If there is something beating at your heart that wants to be shared with the world, please, start now. Pick up the pen and start to write the manuscript. Let someone see that painting you are hiding in your studio. Pick up the phone and get yourself in front of whomever it is that needs to see you and your work. Share your unique perspective. Step fully into life — not out of fear that it could end at any moment (even though it can) but out of love for the unique and powerful capacity you have to bring that special thing to the world.
So hug your child; call your mom; tell your partner you love him/her; send gratitude and light and love from your Source, through you and back out into the Universe.
And then get to work. The world is waiting for you.

So true. I launched into this frigid (at least in New Jersey) morning stressed about meeting a work deadline, and trying to project how far into the future it would be before I wasn’t worried about work. The reality is that, as a freelance writer, hey, this is my life, and I’d enjoy it so much more if I accepted it and even embraced it. Thanks for the reminder, Laura.
