The Work Is What Will Save You

This morning, I woke up at 5am rather than 4.


It was hard to find motivation.


I wanted to go back to sleep.


I wanted to be normal and wake up at a normal time and just do what regular people do and I suppose I always have that choice. Life is good enough, I am blessed. I could choose to coast but…


Instead, I wake up at 4am most mornings in order to get more time alone to pursue my dreams because I know that I get a choice about whether I live out my fears (of which there are many!) or whether I live out my dreams (I have many of these too).


You get the choice too…


Let the fears win or the dreams win… What choice do you make?


I am sure there are days when you wake up and you just want to cover your head again and go back to sleep – You have these big ideas but frankly, life is not all that bad so you could be normal and regular and still seem to have it all together.


Except like me, maybe you realize that there is more to you than this and you want to experience as much as possible while you are here in this form on this planet…


Or maybe, you know that most of your day is filled with activities you do not want to do and you would like that to change.


Whatever it is and whatever you feel, the work will always save you. It will always get you what you want.


This morning, as I sat up and contemplated my day, I wrote out my goals, prayed my prayers, read excerpts of books and I just could not get my brain in gear to do the work so…


I just began.


No more waiting for inspiration, no more waiting for a nudge in the right direction…


I just began and in that moment, I felt joy because the work always works.


You can wait and hope and pray for inspiration or you can just begin and create the life you really want to lead.


“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.”
