I’ve moved the publishing date for this week’s podcast. It will be available tomorrow because I am writing as a guest over on Positive Writer.
A massive thank you to Bryan for inviting me over to write about the freedom and responsibility we must accept in order to give our inner artists the space and time they need to do their work, and flourish.
…Now and Forever
I remember vividly a moment when I was a kid trying to grasp the concept of eternity, forever, infinity. You may have had a similar experience. It’s mind blowing, painful even to try and get your head around the idea of never within the confines of our understanding of time. My mind was torn between the past and the future; the notion that forever is both directions.
And I remember having a moment of what might be described as mindfulness; a seven year old sat in the bathroom, realising that eternity was nothing but an everlasting series of nows. There is no past or future. Just now. There is always Now. Now. Now. Now. That last now is gone. It doesn’t matter, here’s another now. Now. Now…You get the point. There is never not a now.
You are enough. You are in a position right now to be enough. Not next week, not tomorrow, not later today, not in an hour, not in a minute, right now. Right here in what we might call the eternal present you can choose to accept that you are enough.
