This Is My Time

Today is a gift.
The past is an illusion and the future is unknown.
And so, I am leveraging this day to express my talents, elevate my genius and serve the world.

I work for the world.
Yes, I work for the world.

When I feel afraid, I continue.
When I am criticized, I persist.
When I face a wall, I overcome.
When I am tired, I rest.

I now understand, that all great pursuits demand unusual focus, deep devotion and uncommon hope.
If world-class was easy, everyone would be doing it.
And so I commit to the process.
Knowing that each day is my life in miniature.
And as I craft each day, so I construct my life.

Today, this day, I radiate optimism.
Today, this day, I go the extra mile.
Today, this day, I do work that wows.
Today, this day, I celebrate my loved ones.
Today this day, I am kind.

Trivial pursuits never dilute my attention.
Energy vampires never steal my time.
And old disappointments never dim my fire.

I am a lion, not a sheep.
A leader, not a follower.
A victor, not a victim.

This day is all I have.
I’ll elevate my Mindset.
I’ll calibrate my Heartset.
I’ll iterate my Healthset.
And I’ll recreate my Soulset.

So that I model possibility today.
So that I exemplify audacity today.
And so that I’ll walk with dignity today.

This is my day. Now is my time.

  • All of my novels, at least so far, have an element of mental illness within a character.  Decide to Hope is the most autobiographical in that I struggle in many ways exactly as the female protagonist.
