The time is now

The time to start is now. What is it that you have been putting off? What have you been wanting to do, but are too scared to do? 

For me, I had been wanting to make a change in my life. I wanted to go back to school. It took a night out at the bar to realize that I wasn’t doing anything with my life. I NEEDED that change. 
So, I hastily sent in my application to grad school and was accepted a month later. 

Now, I am entering my second year in grad school. Going back to school was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. And all of the homework and late nights studying are worth it. 

So what’s holding you back from living your purpose? 

Back to school

Thursday I go back to school and start my second year of grad school. I must be nervous because last night I dreamt that I got a C in both of my classes. The horrors. 

But it has me thinking about intention. I think we all have to set intentions. Imagine how we want things to go and chase fearlessly after them. 

Set goals and smash through them. So what have you been looking forward to that you might be a little fearful of? What do you need to achomlish? What are your intentions? What are your goals? 

Let’s set ourselves up for success and have an awesome fall! 

The muse

my muse is gone,
hiding in the dresser drawers

while I am hiding
under the covers

away from the moon
who knows all my secrets

and the sun who
knows the truth

the words don’t flow
without my muse

and I don’t want the
sun to touch my face
and remind me of all my faults
