Everyone has ocean’s to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries? ― Amelia Earhart
Happy, happy 115th birthday Amelia.
I first heard this quote when I was listening to an interview with Mastin Kipp and Marie Forleo; tears rolled down my face instantly.
Shortly after Mastin recited the quote he said something to the effect that he would rather die than not at least try to live his life’s purpose.
At first it felt like such an outrageous statement. But the more I sat with it, the more it felt like my own truth.
I’ve never really been in a space where I was denied the expression of my truth. So living it has always come natural to me.
Sure, my methods and techniques have transformed over the years. Maturing and evolving as I do.
I’m sure they will always continue to do so.
I find it impossible to not listen when something is calling me.
I’ve always been willing to risk everything to capture the moment when my inner voice beckons.
It wasn’t always easy. Hearts have been broken, tears have been shed, terrified steps have been taken – but in the end, it was always worth it.
I trust the bigger picture The Universe has for me – even + especially when I can’t see it.
So today, in honor of Amelia Earhart and Mastin Kipp, I am celebrating each beautiful step I have taken that has brought me where I am today.
Each moment I’ve have been able to walk the Earth a free spirit.
For every tear that has been shed.
Every kiss that has been savored.
+ all that is yet to be revealed in this beautiful, magnificent life I have co-created for myself.
What are you celebrating today? What dreams can you ignore no longer? Where in your life will you choose to be unstoppable?
