It is time

This week’s assignment really gets me thinking. I find myself suddenly lost for words and the long dormant question rising again in my head: What am I doing with what is given to me?

I’ve for long seen myself as someone who knows, rather that someone who does. I’m not so good with the tangible, not so good on getting things done in the regular sense; However I feel I have seen the fruits of little seeds I’ve planted and watered. Or so I’ve led myself to believe, trying to justify my inactivity.

But, Truth be told, my biggest challenge and barrier is me alone.

Me against my fears.

I have to do something.

Everyday, one day at a time. It is time.

I know that is the answer when you don’t have one. I have to have the faith that the road will show itself and that I am doing what must be done. By being here, writing this and reading many other of the wonderful stories here.

World Pulse is shaping out to be, not only a space for an outlet but also a motivation and awakening that with the tools I have I can do more than what I do, and that many have done far more with much less. It opens me and humbles me. It disarms me only to empower me, if that makes any sense.

I know there is a long road ahead and much to be learned but I’m also confident that within me lies a good intention by which I try to found all actions.

You are beautiful! Just by BEING. Your thoughts and feelings can create just as much (and many times, MORE) positive change in the world as tangible actions.


With much love & light,

Hi.... Yes, thank you for your authenticity here and your directness about not having decided yet what actions you would like to take towards the things you would like to change. I think time does help. Also, writing - being idealistic about your goals - and then looking at ways in which you could work towards putting some of your ideals into action, in tangible ways in your life....

I also sometimes feel like a 'knower' or 'thinker' rather than 'doer', and it is easy to get irritated with oneself for not being able immediately to 'get things done'. It is a strange feeling. To get better at putting things into action, I have found it really works to talk to other people - good friends - about ideas and how to work towards them in the real world. Articulating thoughts, and asking/sharing advice, etc. can be so good. What has helped you put things from 'knowledge' or 'thought' into action so far?

At the same time, being thoughtful and being careful about what you act on is a very good thing! Action without thought sometimes isn't!

Thank you for your sharing here.

Best, Antonia
