I just discovered the #Trust30 online initiative and 30-day writing challenge that encourages you to look within and trust yourself.  Since it is well past May 31st, I am already behind. (Story of my life.)

But, that’s not going to stop me. (Also, story of my life.)

So, here goes…  I have just been told I have 15 minutes to live.  Here is the story that has to be written.

Shit, I don’t have time to write a story.  I have to hug my kids.  I have to tell them to be fearless in the pursuit of self-knowledge, self-love and the life they want to live while they’re here.  Don’t wait as fucking long as I did to catch a clue.  Decide now what you want out of life and then go get it.

Don’t let others tell you who you are!  And it’s ok to change your mind. A thousand times, if that’s what it takes.  That’s not being flaky – that’s calibrating the direction of your journey with each new thing you learn about yourself and the world.

Your mama loves you far more than I took time to tell you or show you. And you will do that, too. And it’s ok. That doesn’t make you a shit.  It makes you a human being, sure that you’ve got more than 15 minutes left.

And for everyone else I love, same thing goes for you.

I love you. Don’t make me haunt your ass.
