Speak now

If you are waiting for a sign, this is it. Do it, it will be amazing...


Taylor Swift has been quite an inspiration lately.

Don't judge...

In the prologue to her Speak Now album, she talks about the moment in a wedding ceremony when the preacher says "Speak now or forever hold your peace".

Its a moment that can be quite uncomfortable at times... and I've been to weddings where everyone was on edge...

Many people dream or desire to do something as bold as bursting into a church, and making their true feelings known, but it rarely happens in real life.

The whole thing is about living without regret and saying the things you need to say before its too late...

Honestly, I don't think I am good with words.

Writing is completely different from speaking... when I write I can hit backspace, or I can erase....

Spoken words are so final... you can't take them back and there is no time to edit.

So I guess this has been a struggle in my own life, simply because I don't know how to say the things I long to say.

Maybe you feel the same way, maybe you feel like there is something you need to say...

Maybe its telling someone your sorry, even if you don't feel like it was your fault.

Maybe its telling someone you were wrong...

Maybe its telling someone that you are finished falling for the same old thing and that you are really letting go this time...

Maybe its telling someone how you really feel...

I think one of the hardest parts, other than finding the words, is the fear of how the other person will respond.

Maybe they won't forgive you. Maybe the won't let go of the past. And maybe they won't feel the same...

But I've come to realize that its not about how the other person reacts, its about the fact that you had enough courage to speak in the first place.

I honestly think when we look back on our lives, the most regret we will have are the times we didn't act or speak when we knew that we should have.

In my own life I know there are people that I need to say things to and I'm not going to hold back anymore...

So start today.

Make the phone call.

Drive to their house.

Write them a letter...

You never know when it might be too late...

So maybe like me, your heart is beating out your chest... and you feel like you might either have a heart attack or throw up before you are able to speak...

Its not about having the perfect words or about saying it without stuttering...

Because I think if its someone you really care about, they won't necessarily care if its worded eloquently. If you are vulnerable enough to share your heart, I think most people will get that.

If you know what you need to say, then say it.

I think its time to Speak Now...

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
