Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools!

Today is not a dress rehearsal. It is the main event. The one and only show you got. So make it count.

So often I encounter people waiting for the ideal circumstances to arrive so they can enjoy life.

If you could just lose 5 more pounds, or get that dream job, or find your soul mate, or buy that house, then you could be happy. But these BULLSHIT excuses will just trip you up time and time again.

I know it’s easier to play the blame game. Others are just luckier. They didn’t grow up in your family. They didn’t have the obstacles you had to overcome. Am I right?

I’m here to tell you that you couldn’t be more wrong. You are magnificent and special. A unique child of Creation and the same light that flows through every human being flows through you.

The problem is you have allowed your EGO to take control. You see yourself as different and separate from others. But we are all the same. We are all connected by this powerful Force that created us. We all have that G-d spark burning inside us.

So stop waiting for the perfect moment to present itself. NOW is the perfect moment. It’s the only time we can guarantee. THIS moment, the one He gifted you with, is the only one that matters. So don’t waste a precious second of it.

You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. Learn to use them. And fly, fly, fly my angels. And all the while, know that He is the wind beneath your wings as your soar upwards.
