What My World's Like

2010: a very good year

Dec
31

wow, it’s just hitting me that it’s really december 31st. this year literally swept by in a haze. i remember clearly when it started and so much has changed for me since then. i moved…again. being back in new york has been really great for me. so much about myself and about life in general has been revealed–and is being revealed–to me. the clarity i have now is life-changing, yet i’m assured of greater comfort knowing that my vision will only begin to crystallize over time. as that vision begins to crystallize, i see a change in my being and my doing. it’s a really beautiful and exciting time for me.

the best part of this year, though, is when i looked up and realized that i am what i’ve been trying to be, but the lens through which i was looking at myself was so blurry that i couldn’t see clearly. i’ve been so hard on myself so for long, so unnecessarily. themes of acceptance, forgiveness, and love were really punctuated this year. since then, i’ve made adjustments to my thinking and behavioral patterns that have started creating an inner peace i’ve wished for for years.

live work create by samantha margalit

The magic is the process of creation. We may live and we may work, but oftentimes, even as creators we forget to create. To produce. To finish our starts.

Here’s a little reminder for all of us.

If you read this and think, “Oh, well, I’m not an artist. This doesn’t apply to me.” It does.

Yesterday’s #notetoself: your life is your message and you are your masterpiece.

‘now’ is always the time to design and build your dreams.
that’s what makes the journey so sweet.

Right now is such an exciting time. Really, ‘now’ is the only time there ever is. Everything else is a construct, but ‘now’ will never cease to be. I’m moving confidently in the direction of my dreams. I’ve had some nudges along the way, but recently there’s been this sense of urgency. I can’t wait to make my dreams real. To manifest a grander version of myself. To live the life I want. No mas!

The point of power is always in the present. It’s in the now. Appreciate the journey by appreciating the present. The highs, lows, challenges, gains and losses are all a part of the bigger picture. To change your future, change your ‘now’. Do something differently. Move in the direction you want to be. This life is a process. There is no destination, only direction.

I’m writing and growing, being totally absorbed by the power, possibility, and responsibility of this moment, which is all about becoming the best version of myself possible. I’m on Cloud 9. You can be too. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. 🙂
