Last night I decided to make a vision board. Those magical things you make and put up in your work space to help you visualize your wants and goals. A lot of my goals in life are pretty lofty, and sometimes seemingly crazy or unreachable. I constantly wrestle with the fear that these goals won’t be met but I can’t imagine living in a world without those goals being my one focus. So in making a vision board, it serves as a positive visualization for my mind and my world while I work, live, hang out, watch TV…. in my room.
As opposed to just staring at your Twitter page and wandering ‘Why doesn’t she update more often?!’, @oprah.
So I turned on my radio to play some music while I worked on the board, it was on some talk radio show, and I clicked to change the channel to music but just before I did, this is what I heard:
‘Nascent. Something thats beginning to exist or develop. One could say a house that is under construction or Dustin Hoffman’s career in the midst of ‘The Graduate’ are examples of things being nascent.’
Before I could process what I heard, I had turned the channel to some music and then the coolness of this moment hit me.
Such a groovy thing to hear in the midst of all so much confusion and constant worry about things. I spend all day wondering WHATS NEXT?! WHAT IS ON THE HORIZON?! Am I doing enough to push things forward?! Am I ever gonna get where I want to get? Where I imagine myself getting? Where I am about make a vision board full of images of this WHERE I want to be ‘thing’????????
And the answer…. so clearly and loudly on my SiriusXM radio was being spoken out to me as if from the universe itself.
The answer was…. chill out…. this is just the beginning…. enjoy this moment as your life is nascent….. as it just begins….. don’t be too caught up in the later…. in the future…. in those things I’m constantly fearing I’ll never obtain….. be present to your nasceny. Cherish it. Because things only begin once.
This is now. Now is nascent. Its only just beginning to unfold.
