Yes, I am ready! With the transistion of Dr. Angelou, it hits home that if not now, when? That woman lived her life in the most glorious way. Certainly, she had her trials and regrets, but it is obvious that nothing dampened her spirit. And, if something did, apparently she gave it short notice.
What is the sense of putting one’s life on hold? For what? For who? I’ve had ample time for the gathering of knowledge, experiences, and experiments so that I do have something to say to the world.
We all have voices and for some of us, we’ve waited. Waited on someone to give us permission to become our authentic selves. Well, in case you haven’t noticed, “that permission neither has come nor will it come.” The fact that we “exist” is all of the permission needed. It came with conception and birth. Yet, some of us waited because someone told us to just “wait”.
Now, I’m impatient with waiting. I’m not going to start at the beginning. I’m jumping into the middle and pushing forward. There is so much more to learn and to experience/experiment and to give…yes, pour it out and make room for more. Thanks, Dr. Maya Angelou for showing in such great and glorious detail how life is to be LIVED!!!
