Artist Agnes Martin always painted new works based on the mantra “inspiration always came when I asked what’s next?”
Do you find yourself wondering when things will change in your life, or when will something fantastic happen to me or why doesn’t something exciting ever happen to me? Well, wait no more.
We have to be more proactive by tuning in to our inner selves and letting that guide us in experiencing the miracle of our lives. In essence, all we ever hoped and dreamed of is within our very own being. The only thing stopping the flow is our own mental blocks that often have us waiting for some magical moment.
WE ARE THE MAGICAL MOMENT.
If we want to have a different experience, we must ask the Universe what was I created to do? What is waiting for me to experience? It could be something as simple as changing our nail polish or something creative like writing a book. It could mean trying a new flavored tea instead of the same flavor we have sipped for the past three years. It could even mean starting a new career path or a long postponed hobby.
Whatever it is, the anticipation of letting new adventures flow from us is an opportunity to experience yourself in a new and exciting way!
Those things don’t have to be huge and sweeping changes, but starting out with small and manageable adventures will increase your confidence for the things you can’t imagine yourself venturing into. Just try new adventures (big or small) consistently, and you will be amazed at how rapid your growth occurs, and more importantly, how vibrant you feel.
Life is to be lived, and even our mundane daily tasks can yield newness. When recently shopping for groceries, Linda shared with me that she made up her mind to try a different fruit — ugli fruit (delicious) is now a semi regular item on her list.
I learned a while ago that when I find myself stuck in my same old patterns, when I feel weary or when nothing new and exciting seems to be on the horizon, that is when I get to “listing.” Listing is a tool I use. I literally list 3-5 new things or opportunities that I want to try out, sample or experience.
Currently, my list has these things on it:
- Learn how to create 60 seconds videos for my business;
- Eat a minimum of 2 meatless meals weekly;
- Resume my online French lessons — 40 minutes daily;
- Plant a variety of bulbs (besides tulips) in my backyard;
- Try indoor skydiving

I am committed to find new things to see and do — new people to meet! Let’s imagine new possibilities and then DO THEM!
