The moment came. There’s no turning back now. I haven’t thought about the moment my dream would be shared. The moment everything I planned, anticipated, the secret I held close would be exposed to others. Like a passing eclipse over the sun I don’t have control…it’s going to happen. Ready or not I sit back and enjoy the moment. The one moment you’re courageous enough to speak your truth. Your dreams. Your desire.
You feel for me, I see. You relate to me saying “hold back.” Half of me agrees and the other half says no way! Half my life has gone by and I’m not going to living with regret remember? I am who I am. Like the energy force pulling the moon in front of the sun it’s rare, beautiful, and very unusual. We set our clocks to see the eclipse and tell stories about what we saw for days.
I’m the first to ask you about your weekend and how you’re doing but wait to be asked before sharing my own. There’s freedom in the unseen or unheard. If you don’t know what I’m thinking or doing then you won’t tell me it can’t be done or it’s stupid. If you don’t tell me its stupid then I get to live in my own space where it’s a wonderful idea and don’t need to justify it.
Justify, to prove to be right or reasonable. Why do people make you feel like you have to justify a life decision just because its different from your own? Why not assume it’s reasonable for that person? How much more open would we be if we didn’t have to justify decisions? More care free. More open. Kind. Caring other others. What’s right for them. It’s not about me. It’s not about you.
The moment I shared my desire to build a tiny house has passed. Whether I was ready or not its out there. Despite normal fears and self-doubt, which is to be expected, most of the responses have been of wonder. It’s kind of like reality TV where you can’t help but watch just to see what happens. And I’m ok with that. I feel the same! Living without courage isn’t living at all. Be you!
