It is my fault that I am awake at 3:18 on a Tuesday morning and here in my home office writing this article. I should have known better than to drink a mocha at 8:30 in the evening, and to allow my mind to get bogged down with “stuff.” I will undoubtedly go back to bed soon and try to sleep another few hours before getting up at six to get ready for work. I am feeling plenty exhausted about now.
So, what’s keeping me awake?
Changes. Huge changes are happening in my life.
I opened the door to opportunity, my feet hit the pavement, and now the forward movement is happening with grace and the right speed. This action is enough to keep me motivated but not to knock me off my feet.
It took me some time to get to a space where I was not fearing change. For some time, I was allowing my confidence to waver because I was so busy focusing on what the end result should be instead of experiencing the moment. In fact, a quote from The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe best describes how I was feeling for a while:
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
My lesson is this; opportunity is not about the end result but about my footwork in working toward my goals. I don’t get to say what happens in the end, or how it happens, but I have complete control over the steps I take to get what I want out of life.
So, change, continue coming into my life because I’m ready for you. One hundred percent ready.
