Essences of Nature: All Points Lead to Now

Essences of Nature: All Points Lead to Now Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

p>My tag line for 2018 is “all points lead to now!” No matter where we are, where we have come from, what choices we have made, and what prospects we have gained and lost, they have all brought us to this point, here and now. We are navigating the world and our circumstances, trying to make sense of everything. Our world is where our choices have led us. We take one step and then another, and we stop, look, and listen.
One of the biggest challenges we face is choice. If we walk through one door, are we forever defined by, committed to, or stuck with that prospect? We often want a guarantee that we are on the right path, so we look for the safety net or a sign from above. If we knew then what we know now, would we still have gone in the same direction? Would things make sense?
This upcoming year speaks of the challenge of our choices. Now more than ever, we want to get things right. Many of us feel a sense of urgency and restlessness. We are questioning our timelines regarding the visions and dreams we wish to implement. The overarching question is, “If not now, when?” There is a need to do now, to be now, and to believe now.
