What if the day didn’t come? The perfect day.
You know, that someday when life begins. That day when you’ll be ready. And you’ll begin your fabulous life.
When confidence blossoms. And you feel you can tackle whatever, without fear. Leave the naysayers in your dust because you feel so great.
My mother lived her life waiting for that day. Her entire life. Waiting for the right time to begin. The right time to change. The right doctor to make her feel whole.
She walked out of my life many years ago. And I often used to wonder if she ever found that day.
(Actually, she had mental illness and wasn’t a happy person at all. But she kept waiting to be rescued from herself and eventually died alone in a nursing home this year 2021.)
My mind wanders to an intense conversation. Sitting in a car outside a liquor store, while the rain lashed down. It ended with me telling her I hoped she didn’t end up on her death bed looking back with regret at all the dreams she didn’t follow. Because the right day hadn’t happened.
She threw me out the car to walk home in the rain. Not the first or last time she threw me out!
But the memory of this one is particularly poignant. Because she helped me find an important truth.
That perfect day never comes
The perfect day when you have the money. Or the time. Are the right weight, age or live in the perfect home.
Some of the best things I’ve ever done for myself were when the timing was completely off!
Reiki Master Training in the middle of college exams. I was the teacher and my work load was off the charts. Starting my own holistic practice when no one had heard of holistic health care, and I was stony broke to boot! Leaving the USA in the middle of a pandemic.
I’ll tell some stories another day, but for now…
Don’t put off life.
Don’t wait for that day.
Live out loud.
Take the challenge.
Life is what happens to you in the imperfect moments.
So, go ahead, just say YES to life. And let’s start enjoying each day. Yes, there’s gonna be moments that suck. But they shouldn’t define our lives. EVER!
I’m opening up my on-line practice again. Celebrating life with hypnotherapy, coaching and healing. And I’d love to work with you. If you’ve made it this far, what’s the future have in store. Contact me now if you’re ready to seize the day and live your fabulous life.
