I watch this video and I cry. There is so much passion and desire inside me that when I watch a moment like this that is also filled with so much passion, so much work, so many dreams coming true and so many years of believing and hoping and creating, I truly cannot contain myself.
It’s not that I want to be Alicia Keys or Jay-Z, it’s that I want to feel what they’re feeling in this moment captured in time. I want to be in the midst of what I’ve created and be overcome. I want to feel my New York moment.
I’ve had a shit-ton of them in small ways, and I’m also aware that it’s possible to make any moment in any day a New York moment, simply by calling it that and believing it to be so.
I know myself. I know I haven’t done all the work to get there. I have more to do and I know this moment is on the horizon. It has to be. And sometimes that makes me cry, too.
I hope you have something that fills you with this much joy. I hope you’ve discovered your passion and that you’re working towards something that gives you this much life.
If not, now is the time.
