I’ve thought about it. The desires of my life. About what I would I would do if I could do it in an instant. What would I do if I were to snap my fingers and the thing that I wanted were to magically happen; whether it was instantly get into shape or finish that book.

It is in these moments of clarity that I come closer to the reality that if I want to realize these hopes and dreams that I must first start towards them.

A journey of a thousand miles began with a single step.

No, I’m not going to beat myself up about the steps I haven’t taken. There isn’t any point in doing that.

I’m not going to freak out about what tools to use or what direction to go in.

I’m going to sit here, not afraid of what obstacles and hurdles I may run into or worry that I’m going the wrong way.

I’m going to take this moment and be thankful for the opportunities that I have in front of me.

I’m alive and in good health.

I have a family downstairs reading to each other and living in the moment created by the universe just for them.

When I finish this little piece of writing, I’m going down to be with them knowing that although I have millions and millions of possibilities for things to do, I only have so many moments to be with them.

And that is a kind of peace of mind that money or dreams can’t buy.
