How will you feel…?

 …if you don’t do it?

Whatever it is.

You know. 

That thing that makes you feel like you’re on fire with the same passion and energy that lights the stars. 


If you’re anything like me, not following that path to passion (and we’re talking positive stuff, nothing that’s going to harm you,) makes you feel somewhere on the shit spectrum. Depending on the day this might be merely a mild disgruntled feeling or on another, like death itself. 

So how about it folks. Can we just agree to NOT do that?  

 Because what would be the point? Mary Oliver asks us in her poem what we are going to do with our one wild precious life… It’s an important question.

Here is what Elizabeth Gilbert has to say about it. 

So dear ones…go for it. Seize the day. Leave no stone unturned. Write your story. Invent that thing. Collect stamps. Do yoga. Whatever!  

Be creative in the way which reflects your most honest, vulnerable and authentic you. 

Unleash that good shit on the world.

Now go get it happening. Love to hear from you how it goes.

May the road rise up to meet you.
