Walk the Walk

My whole life, I’ve felt like someone who is becoming. I’m becoming smarter, braver, more effective, a better storyteller, more informed, more open. Even now I’m becoming someone who believes that my life is about to be this expansive, undeniably amazing, jaw-dropping kind of life that I didn’t even know to dream about growing up. I think I have bigger plans and expectations now than I ever had as a kid.

I think there’s something to this expectation of limitless abundance. I’m not just talking about money, but I’m talking about all of the people I want to reach, I’m talking about the learning I am going to do, the things I have to be grateful for, the love I have to give. But the language I’m using: becoming, going to, there’s that thread of unsurety in there.

How do we embody the life that we’re planning on when we speak about it so tentatively? Like we’re afraid to claim it, like we think someone will find us overconfident, like we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop.

So let’s not wait for the other shoe to drop. Plant both of your feet firmly on the ground, and open your arms wide because this amazing life isn’t just coming for you.
It’s already here! Live it!

Walk the walk, Baby.
