Part of living with your whole heart means not dwelling on “if only” or “too late.” It means grabbing opportunities as they come and looking forward to the next great thing. It means welcoming challenges, reinventing yourself, and walking into each day with the intention to seize it.
When you live with all your heart, “if only” and “too late” simply disappear. Time is given to all of us in measures we can’t predict. But whole-hearted living teaches you that there is no weighing joy against time, because both are immeasurable. Rather than race against time, you stroll alongside it, filling the minutes with happiness as they come. You take every moment you’re given to make the most of the beautiful life in front of you.
Singer-songwriter Lucy Billings knows a thing or two about reinvention, and about flinging it in the face of “too late.” After building a twenty-year career as a corporate lawyer in California, Lucy packed up her guitars (and her cat!) and moved to Nashville to become a folk singer. She was 61 when she made this brave leap, and now she’s recorded three albums and is busy penning songs for her fourth. According to Lucy’s website, “The songs of the upcoming 2016 release reflect Lucy’s current journey and hopefulness, with topics ranging from socially relevant issues such as bullying, ageism and the inevitability of change, to following your heart and embracing new purpose and possibilities.” Find more about Lucy Billings at oprah.com, and at LucyBillings.com.
