PRIORITIES CHANGE (and that is perfectly fine)
Several months ago I had everything.
Now, I have almost nothing.
Just a few short months ago, I was living a decent life - I had a house, I had an amazing partner in life, I had a motorcycle, I had a car, I was working when I wanted, I had time-freedom...
In other words, I had everything that most people would ever want.
And, though I had most of what a normal person would want to have I was NOT living to my full potential.
I had become comfortable in my little life there. (In the Matrix!)
And, that was a problem!
Now, why would this be a problem?
Because since I was a little child I'd always known that I was born to make a difference in this world.
And, I wasn't making much of a difference.
I was merely living a decent life, living in relative comfort, simply existing.
I knew that. I felt it.
But, I didn't even have the strength to say, "Enough is enough! This must change! I must live the destiny that I've always known I was meant to live! I must make the difference I've always felt I was put here on this planet to make!".
I wasn't strong enough to end my comfy life - and re-alight with the Mission I was born for.
My wife was the strong one.
Over time, she began hurting even more than I was hurting - seeing me slowly settling for mediocre, wasting the potential that both of us knew I've always had.
So, she politely - but firmly - asked me to leave, to go and find myself, to go and figure out a way to regain my own Power - the Power she'd seen in me when she first came to the States and joined me and I had to do literally whatever it took so that we make it past the hardship... so that we survive.
Back to my story...
So, I left the house. I only took 3 chairs, one plastic table and two picknick beds with me.
My priorities started to shift.
I had a new taste of the struggle to survive - again.
I had a new taste of Freedom, too - Freedom I've never known.
I sold my motorcycle.
I sold my car, too.
In the process, I learned a lot about myself - A LOT. And, I continue learning literally every day.
My priorities changed, too - in a big way.
I now value simplicity.
I value my values.
I value my beliefs.
I value my vision.
I value my mission.
I value who I am and who I am becoming.
I value my story.
I value my message.
I now have almost nothing.
Everything I have I can fit in a 3-day duffel travel bag (and a backpack for my computer and my journals).
And, it feels awesome.
Because I have ME AGAIN!
I am more aligned than I have ever been with why I am here on this planet.
Want to know why I'm here?
I am here to shake up all of you who - just like me - have always felt and known deep on the inside (especially from when you were very young, powerful and fearless) that you were born to make a difference - but YOU AREN'T!
That's why I'm here.
The Mission doesn't change.
The Mission is either lived fully or ignored.
I am living my Mission fully now.
