I was sending a text to a friend tonight who needed some encouragement. And all of a sudden I could SEE my path like it was a reality. And it IS a reality, which is the key to my whole being right now. I can see myself at the center of the most positive, enlightened people on the planet, and giving them the gift to change their future. I see myself sponsoring an Olympic C-1 paddler to get their dream of representing their country. I see myself helping EVERY kid who wants to get on the water (paddling, whatever) when they do not have the opportunity to do so. I see myself helping hundreds of people learn how to paddle and learn their sense of confidence.
I feel calm, almost at peace. Except at the same time my soul is humming with certainty and purpose. For the first time ever, I have a very clear vision of what is to come. I have had a series of epiphanies the last few months, and they have all lead to THIS moment in time. It has never been this clear, and never with this kind of inspired action.
The best part of my above vision? I get to that level of achievement that by helping other people get what they want. For those that know me, it is an innate part of my personality. I crave it like people crave chocolate.
The weirdest part of tonight was I did not consciously make a decision. My mind and soul decided for me. All of a sudden at 9:00 this evening, the timer went “Pop” and it was like an explosion. And right now, it’s like an all-consuming fire running through my veins to cleanse myself and I really want to run like 10 miles.
I feel epically, utterly different than I ever have before. Different than last month by ten-fold. I feel it with a certainty that is unlike any other I have felt before. This is my life, and I am owning it starting TODAY.
