“The Word”

“If not now, then when? Most of us, at some point in our lives will have to face a moment in which we realize that we have somehow ended up in the wrong place~or at least, in a very bad place. Maybe we will have to admit that we are in the wrong job. Or the wrong relationship. Acting out on the wrong behaviors. Using the wrong substances. Pretending to believe things that we no longer believe. Pretending to be something we were never meant to be. This moment of realization is seldom fun. In fact, it’s usually terrifying. I call this moment of realization: NOT THIS. Because sometimes that’s all you know. All you know is that some deep life force within you is saying, NOT THIS, and it won’t be silenced. I think of friends who bravely walked into AA meetings and just fell apart in front of a room full of total strangers, and said, NOT THIS. If you keep ignoring the voices within you that say NOT THIS, just because you don’t know what to do, instead…you may end up stuck in NOT THIS forever. You don’t need to know where you are going to admit that where you are standing right now is wrong. The bravest thing to say can be these two words: NOT THIS. What comes next? I don’t know. You don’t know. Nobody knows. It might be worse. It might be better. And that’s okay. But whatever it is…? It’s NOT THIS.” XO
