it is time for you to go on an adventure



“It’s not what you’ve got. It’s about how brave you’re prepared to be.” — Seth Godin

It is time for you to go on an adventure.

It is time to unlock your soul’s code
and confess what you know
You need to do with your life.

You are not yet what you need to be.
The journey makes you what you need to be
The journey owns you.
Resistance hurts yourself and others
(You die in drops and inches.)

It is time to look close and go where
the gold waits for you in the dark
(darkness is wisdom)

It is time to go deep

It is time to take back the power you’ve given to others.
The power and the light.
The power is your birthright.

It is time to reclaim the creative fire
that is also your birthright.
They stole it from you.
(Perhaps they didn’t mean to.)

It is time to get serious. It is time to get down.
It is time to do it anyway.
You are ready to start.
You are ready to start.

It is time to feel how the world
flows down through your wounds
into a heart broken open
and makes it bigger.
So let it in.

And the strategies you used to survive
no longer serve you.
So let them go.

This is how we find our deeper selves.

It is time to quit the old place.
An adventure begins with the knowing
that here is somewhere you can’t stay.

It is time to face the void
and see the space for new creation.

It is time to be brave.

If you’re on someone else’s path
It’s not your own path
If someone else tells the story
It’s not your own story

The room you are afraid to enter
is the source of what you’re looking for.

Where you stumble and fall
is your entry point
Into the bigger life

It is time for you to go on an adventure.

Powerful + true. Thank you.


Whoa! Excellent! (Making my air guitar squeal in celebration of this fierce kick in the pants) \m/


A great battle cry for 2013. Time to roll up the sleeves and kick some ass!


Hi Justine,
Wow, you just nailed it. Really good! Thanks for sharing your words. Always a pleasure to read your truths.
Cheers from France,


Gave me goosebumps, thanks for this Justine.


How did you know?!

Thanks for all you give.


articulated excellently x


You. Rock. That is all.


I hope you don’t mind, but I am printing this out to hang above my desk so I can read it every day to remind myself where I am going. One of your more recent posts pointed out that being authentic takes so much more courage than we realize – something I am learning quickly as I strike out on a new path. Your words will help me remember that I am ready, that it is time.


I’m really honored, Lainey. Thank you.
