Right now you have an incredible opportunity which has never before existed and which will never come again. You have the opportunity to be the special, unique person you are right now. You have the opportunity to put to good use everything you’ve ever learned, every skill you’ve ever developed, every experience through which you’ve ever lived. Just imagine the powerful, magnificent possibilities. Just think of how much value there is in a lifetime of experience, of learning, of dealing with challenges, of living. And it is all yours, yours to use in following your highest and best vision for what life can be. It is yours to use in expressing the valuable and unique person you are.
Think of a time when you were filled with joy and excitement. Remember how fully alive you felt? Remember how great it was? That feeling can be yours again. It never really left you. It is with you now and available to you any time you decide to experience it. It is yours when you choose to live each moment with passion and with purpose, when you decide to make the most of the wonderful gift of life that is yours to live.
There’s no need to wait until all your problems are solved, or until the world’s problems are eliminated. Those problems, those challenges, those obstacles are not there to hold you back. They can prevent you from fully experiencing life only if you allow them to do so. The good news is that you can choose to live a life of fulfillment and joy no matter what difficulties you may face. You can choose to always be moving forward, no matter where you may be.
