As I sat in the stylists' chair for five hours, all of these things ran about in my chemically soaked head. What am I going to do with my life? Have I really made a difference at Carey? and blah blah blah blah blahs of a young woman about to graduate. The curlers came out and with each ringlet I realized that it doesn't matter what happens next . . . wait what? Did I really just say that?
Yes I just said it really doesn't matter what happens next. This does not mean we can just sit back, pop open a coke, and let life pass us by. It means that just as I was so enthralled by the birth of my curls we should be enthralled by the birth of each new moment. I could plan out my entire life and then something could happen ten minutes from now to change everything. All I can count on is the step right in front of me.
The next step for me is preparing to leave for China. I have dreams that span beyond the next three months abroad, but I must take this step to even think about those dreams coming true. Learning to go one step and one day at a time is a hard lesson. Just ask a few of my friends ~wink, wink~!!! Starting this lesson is actually easy . . . you take a breath then you take another.
Look at your to do lists and calendars to decide what comes as the next step for you. Maybe you need something drastic to get your butt moving or maybe you just need to refocus your attention. Soon your day dreams will become closer to reality and you'll find yourself much more productive.
