(You can listen, read or both! Enjoy)

As I’m getting older, my internal clock is getting louder. So much so, that I can’t stand the sound of actual clocks ticking. I made the hubs get rid of any clock that ticked, but that didn’t settle the unrest bubbling in the pit of my stomach.

There is so much that I still want to do with my life, but sometimes I can’t shake that feeling of running out of time and then I get stuck. A ‘lack’ mentality will always lead to feeling stuck. That idea of “if only I had more money, I would …” or “if only I were younger, I would …”

If only. Two little words that can paralyze us and keep us from living our best lives. Stop for a minute and think about your ‘what if.’ I’ll wait. Got it? Now I encourage you to take another minute and flip the script. For example, instead of ‘if only I was younger, I would …’ flip it to ‘what if I had all the time in the world, what would I do.’ Then list the things you’d do and get to gettin’.

My point is that you can change the narrative, and you should if your current one isn’t serving you. I was watching Rihanna’s Fenty shows on Prime recently, and looking at the performers being so committed to their craft and seeing the full spectrum of beauty that represents humanity, I felt like I could accomplish anything. At one point, what the performers were doing was so beautiful I was brought tears. But it was more than that. I felt the power of witnessing people living their dreams, and I want that power in my own life.

So I’m gonna fight for it! Come on … say it with me … ‘I got the power.’ Yes boo! You have the power to create the life you want. Simply switch your perspective. Turn your ‘if only’ to ‘what if.’ Go from victim to victor. I’m going to plan like I have all the time in the world and live like there’s no tomorrow! What are you gonna do?

Now’s the time to be fearless and create the life of your dreams. No one is going to hand it to you on a silver platter. Not even if you’re born into royalty. If the ‘Spare’ is out there hustling to live his best life, then we better get out there and live ours!

You deserve all the good things in life that you want. You are worthy. You are on point to do great things. You are unstoppable. Now is the time.
