Life is now, affirm it
It's so easy that we think "I'll do it later", but "later" might never come. Life is right now!
I myself have lived like that, or still do a bit, but I have definitely gotten better at taking advantage of life and what I want to do.
I have been told since a young age how life would work and like many of us I let myself be fooled. I did not think there was any choice, that it was meant to fit into the template where all the others were located. That delusion has been in the spine for many years along with the voice of ego, all to keep me "stuck" where I felt deep within myself that I didn't want to be. The voice of the heart has been calling me all these years, but I have not dared listen to it. Afraid of being perceived as strange, afraid to stand out from the crowd and afraid of being judged.
Life has taken me on many different paths, both good and less good and all these paths have, along with the years, led me to where I am now.
Now I live through my heart instead and am exactly where I always wanted to be in life. Fear is sometimes reminded, but now it is much easier to fight it off. I do what I love, i.e. create from the desire of the heart and dare to finally show and stand for who I really am and what my passions are.
So think about it.
Life is lived now, not later!
