Action 139 - Pay Attention.

My life has a certain synchronicity to it that I have come to depend on. When I need something, it somehow manifests itself in front of me. All I need to do is not miss it.

Today was a tough day for me. And I was starting to let doubts creep in. Can I keep up this project for another seventy-two days? Will my body hold up through each of the events ahead? Am I going to be able to run another full marathon? Stupid worries and fears.

Fortunately for me, there's Action 139 - Pay Attention. Just as those negative thoughts were creeping in, I stumbled across a blog written by my buddy, Marc Moder (Endorsed/Not Endorsed). He was promoting this amazing video, and the lyrics felt as if they were written just for me in this moment.

When the Universe speaks to me, my only task is to pay attention. Thanks, Marc, for relaying that message today.

Gonna be someone.
Gonna give something.
I'm taking it all.
I'm taking it all.

It's gonna be my life.
So I'm gonna live each day and each night.
I'm taking it all.
I'm taking it all.

Cause I can't keep hiding.
I can't keep hiding.
I can't keep running away.

Cause I'm gonna be stronger,
And I'm gonna be better, babe.
And I'm gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.

Gonna be a braver soul than this.
Gonna jump at all those many chances that I missed.
Gonna live my life beyond these fears and forms of cowardice.
That keep leading me on.

I'm gonna shine out like beacon in the night.
I'm gonna wrap my fingers round the stars tonight.

Cause I'm taking it all.
Yes, I'm taking it all.

Cause I can't keep hiding.
No, I can't keep hiding.
No, I can't keep running away.

Cause I'm gonna be stronger,
And I'm gonna be better, babe.
And I'm gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.

And I'm gonna be stronger,
And I'm gonna be understood.
And I'm gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.

Cause I can't keep hiding.
No, I can't keep hiding.
No, I can't keep running away.
