It's important to celebrate the present moment - and at the same time, honoring our past and getting excited about our future. But I think it's also very critical that we all know we have the capacity to completely change it all - to REBIRTH ourselves if we feel like we are heading in the wrong direction. As far as I know, I only have this one life - so it might as well be as incredible as possible.
I like to say that we are only truly living when we are OK with 'living in the question mark'. Nothing is certain in life - we can plan, plan, plan away - but oftentimes, the universe has other things in store for us. And there is a reason for whatever comes our way. The sooner we become ok with this, the sooner we can really be present in our bodies and in our minds - and experience the richness of life. It may not always be an easy pill to swallow, but it's a pill that will take us on phenomenal journeys of self-introspection and towards our greater purpose.
I chose to leave my old life behind several years ago because it wasn't serving me - and I haven't looked back. It hasn't always been an easy ride, but making that choice was definitely the most liberating thing I have ever done during my years on this planet.
