Are you ready, hesitatingly or otherwise, for a little positive shake-up in your life?  Is there something you are looking forward to one day?  Does this resonate with you: one day I will write, one day I will have a job I love, one day I will paint, one day I will be happy?

The speed of change is now.

Find things about your current job that you love.  (If there is nothing positive about it, get a different one.)  Now.  Get a sketchbook and some colors.  Now.  Write crappy first drafts.  Now.  Take that community education class on soap-making, now.  Find a free app that’ll give you a couple German language lessons, now.  See things in your life that make you smile, give you joy.  When?  Oh yeah–now.

By doing so, you create right now the life you wish to have “one day”.  Let go of the idea that you strive, and then when you attain you are done.  You already have it, you just need to see it.  And then your job is to enjoy it!

It’s called “right now”, not “wrong now” for a reason.  🙂

Here’s the tricky next part: let go of the finalized picture and let it happen in its own package.  Otherwise you are just asking God for a new car, and then complaining about the make and model that you won with your raffle ticket….
