Fire Amidst The Darkness:

Eternal Empowerment Burns Within

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Having the life that you want takes a lot of work to create. Make no mistake, no one is ever going to do that work for you, no one can and no one may. Good things in your life won’t just occur, you have to make them a reality through your beliefs and your actions, through the strength of your will. Every day you awake to find breath still in your lungs is another opportunity to do right in the world, for yourself and for others. If not now, then when? The days of your life are finite, seize them while you still can.

“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” – Napoleon Hill

Why are you waiting to pursue what you desire, or to do what must be done? There will be no checkered flag dropped, no green light illuminated, no starter pistol fired. There will be no signal provided, for you are the one who must create it and act accordingly. There will never be a perfect time, because nothing in this life will ever be perfect. Don’t let your hesitations paralyze you. Planning and foresight are important, so engage them adequately, but never make the mistake of waiting for perfection. Though you may convince yourself otherwise, it will in fact never arrive.

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” – Michael Altshuler

Your past will always be filled with missed opportunities and mistakes, this cannot be avoided. However, you should not despair. What you can do now, the only real solution to anything, is to do the best you can in every present moment, to capture and act upon every invitation, to make every positive possibility real so that you may minimize past regrets as entirely as possible. Strive for awareness, for presence of mind in this current moment of your life, then act accordingly. Remember, memories become nightmares when one sleeps through life.

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot

As tomorrow is a new day, so too is the promise of future progress always alive so long as your heart continues to beat. Never waste time lamenting the past, fixating on what you could have done, or what you could have been. Rather, look at what you can do now, where you go from here. It’s never too late to make the best of every situation that lies before you, of every moment of every day you still have. Are you going to waste more of your life paralyzed by misgivings, perpetually frozen in a state of inaction as you commiserate about the mistakes of the past or the inconveniences of the present? If so, your present hesitations will become the past misgivings of your future. Stop waiting, act now. Only you have the power to create the reality that you deserve.
