This morning I was going through some old emails and I found a really cool post I had written.
At the time, I was feeling the need to express my thoughts and wanted to start a blog. Time passed and did not continue with it.
The date was April 26th, 2008. Six months before I moved back to LA to reinvent myself.
This is what I had written:
“I want to create myself.
Choose my own path, suffer the consequences of my own mistakes. Those are some of the choices of this new way of living I’m taking.
After years of wanting to save the world of those around me, I realized that I was running from myself.
Regardless of the past, I am here now at this crossroads. Should I keep going down the same path or should I take a turn?
On this year of 2008, I'm gonna take a turn. I want to create my own path.
Listen to my inner voice.
I don’t want to watch my life go by, I want to live my life. I want to look back down the road and be proud of what has past.
I don’t want to be an extra on someone else’s life. I want to play lead role on my own life.
How? When? I don’t know. And I am not worried about that. I know the universe is going to take care of it. I’ll just make a move.
The first step is to make a decision.
Choose my own path and follow it.
That’s what I’m going to do.”
I had completely forgotten about this text I wrote 5 years ago.
But today I see that, had I not made that decision on that last Saturday of April of 2008, I wouldn’t be here today.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that we have the power to change anything in our lives, but let me tell you, we do have it.
It may take a little while to get you to where you want to go, but with patience, dedication and persistence you will get there.
Just choose your path and follow it.
