Sipping on my coffee this morning, watching a sleeping puppy, notebook in hand, I doodled about what the next decade may look like after I sold my home and quit my job.
With no backup plan.
At 55, I feel like I did at 25, yet much wiser. I’ve often said, “I wish I knew what I know now at 25.” With my confidence today, what decisions would I have made sooner rather than later in the 90s & 2000s?
But I’m not a fan of staring in the rearview mirror.
Rebirth, it’s where I am today. Free to create whatever – home, career, lifestyle, education, relationships. All of it.
It’s not starting over. It’s Moxie Becoming. Thank God.
At 25, I was wobbly like a new colt. Now, I’m happily drifting into a crystal blue sea of possibility.
But we all have this at every moment, every day. There are no limitations. You either wake up and decide to make a change, pursue a vocation, make a phone call, book a trip, sell everything, stay in a relationship, or walk.
Every day we have a million options.
With one decision, your life can change. It’s simply up to you.
Damn, it feels great to be a wise 55 with the curiosity and fearlessness of a 25-year-old. I have no interest in crashing and burning. I’ve simply decided to go all in.
I’m stripping myself of feeling safe and comfortable. Because at what point does feeling safe become uncomfortable?
Becoming is never giving up on the idea that there’s more growing to be done. – Michelle Obama
