Over thinking “right” gridlocks our lives. We sit paralyzed until the “right thing” can be done the “right way” at the “right time”. Ugh. And guess what, RIGHT never happens, because there isn’t such a thing. There’s only doing or not doing. Any interpretation of the doing is judgment, totally subjective to the individual perceiving it.
Let’s quit waiting for the stars to align and just get to starting already, whether that’s starting again, starting over, starting anew…
Think of a significant change or transition you made in your life a year or more ago. Can you remember the weather that day? How about the clothes you were wearing? Any idea what your loved ones had on their calendars?
In most cases, none of the details of the first day you started are particularly memorable, because the conditions didn’t matter nearly as much as the fact that you took a leap and began engaging with an adventure.
Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted since February. There’s several reasons for that, but the past few weeks the biggest hindrance was artificial pressure regarding this very issue… how to come back, how to re-engage… thankfully, often the answer is in the question, and so here I am, starting again writing and posting with nothing more than the honesty that the fear-based ego is a tricky bugger, and the only remedy is action in-spite of it.
Let’s stop using circumstances and perfectionism as excuses to not get vulnerable, live our passions, and create lives we are fulfilled living. What are you ready to start today?
