Have you ever visited the Grand Canyon? I just arrived home from my first visit to the Canyon and I am here to tell you that pictures will never convey to you the feeling that the canyon brings as you look at the enormity of it. To realize what nature is capable of creating. Nature didn’t create this amazing place overnight, she didn’t even create it over a few months, a few years, a few hundred years. She has needed the entire expanse of time that the earth has existed to create this masterpiece, she is still creating it today.
Time … it’s something that we, as humans, spend a lot of energy on. We no longer have the patience to wait for something, we all need it now, right now. Instant gratification. We plunge headlong into things without taking the time to exam why we feel we need to do this, what it is that we are going to gain by doing this, how we are going to do this, and if it is really something we want in the long run. Looking into the canyon I see the beauty that comes from small changes over millions of years, the epitome of patience. This creation deserves our respect.
While you can’t create a Grand Canyon, you can create a life that is lined up with who and what you are. It does take time, contemplation, some thought, and some will power to slow down and move a step at a time through the process. It’s time to leave the instant gratification mindset and begin the process of finding what really means something to you, something that enhances your life, something that brings you passion, or something that allows you to use your gifts to the world.
We are all looking for the “next big thing” the one that will finally make us happy. Funny, it seems we can’t find it anywhere out there. The reason for this is that it isn’t out there, it’s in here, inside of your own heart and mind. It’s time to bring clarity and focus into your life and build a life of meaning. It’s never too late to start, time is a relative thing.
The Grand Canyon was built one very small movement at a time … you can build your life of purpose a bit faster than that. I can help you gain some clarity and focus if you would like to begin your own wonder of the world life. If you would like more information, please check out my Ideal LifeVision page.
Don’t you think that it’s time to make a difference in your life?
