*It Starts Now*

There was once a man who bought a ticket to a cruise. Because he had spent most of his $$ on the ticket, he wanted to save what little he had left. So for every meal he would watch all the plentiful and glorious food being set out for guests and then go back to his room to eat the crackers he had brought with him. He did this for every meal of every single day until the very last night of the cruise. As he passed by the buffet with a longing face, a stranger randomly asked him how he was enjoying the trip. He answered that it was lovely... only he wished he could have afforded even one meal on the cruise.

The stranger looked at him and said, "All the meals are included in the price of your cruise ticket."


I'm here to tell you, stop eating crackers! This life is more beautiful and plentiful than you can ever imagine. And it's yours to have. It's provided for you, every day.. every minute. But you're missing it!! Because you're afraid to step outside your room.. afraid to believe that it's possible and afraid to take that risk. 

But you have to make that choice.. that decision. Live your life with purpose! It's not meant to be squandered. You are not meant to be another faceless person blindly zombying (yes i just made that a word) through this life. You have a legend to fulfill. A very specific purpose.

CLAIM IT! You are enough! You are qualified! You are perfect with all your "flaws" and "weaknesses!" Own them. That's what makes you unique. That's the sole reason as to why only you can do what you're meant to do in this world. In your lifetime. 

This world lies to you. You DON'T need to achieve certain things by a certain age in order to be "successful." You DON'T need to look a certain way to be worthy of love. You DON'T need to do things the way they say you do to be good enough. Don't believe in those limitations. 

We are made to change the world for the better. We are meant to change each other. And it starts with you. It starts now.

Say NO to the crackers and yes to the buffet that's already waiting for you. That's been there all along. Live life.

2012. It's here. It's now. It's yours.
