I just finished reading the most incredible book, The Crossroads of Should and Must Find and Follow Your Passion by Elle Luna. Obsessed!
It was by total happenstance that I found this book waiting in line for my daily iced coffee. Of course I was drawn to the graphic cover of the book and thought what the heck, I need something inspiring in my life.
But then she had me at introduction, simply stating how she thinks things appear at the ideal time. This was my ideal time to read this book, I was hooked. And I preceded to finish it in a matter of days. I must share with you one of the questions in the book. It pretty much rocked my world and is what lit the fire under my butt to even make this blog and have the confidence to write about Mindful Living and a way of being (I’ve been dabbling for a bit … you could even say procrastinating).
How long will you wait to honor who you are?
…….. yay, go ahead read it again …….. mindblown!
But really, how long will you wait? A day, a week, 525,600 minutes? What I realized, in that that moment so dear, is that I was tired of waiting to honor myself. Tired of waiting to believe in my voice, tired of defending my authentic self, and tired of pretending. What I was missing, what I think we all struggle with on our way to being, is the fact that we don’t have to wait to honor who we really are. It is now – this moment – this is it – what I know I have been waiting for. Now is when I honor who I am.
Anyway, I could go on and on and on about this book – I have told everyone who will listen they need to read it. And now I’m publicly endorsing it on social media (Elle has not asked me to do this, p.s.) – if you are reading this blog post, then you must read this book!
I hope it awakens in you what you need the most, in this ideal moment.
