Consider this your nudge.
It’s time to get moving.
One way or another, it’s time to get moving.
Get out of your own way, and just step. Just once. And then once more.
Do it. Do it and you’ll be amazed.
Take that first step.
This is your nudge.
Know how I know? I’ve been nudged myself lately.
I’m familiar with the comfortable. Comfortable with the familiar. But it’s time to get moving.
Whatever it is, take that first step.
Success stories don’t just happen. Those scars are earned. These badges are claimed. People don’t just hand them to you. Failures aren’t failures. They’re the successful attempts of finding out what doesn’t work.
I’ve a few projects in the works, and one I’m not sure how to start.
What if it really is just that simple?
What if starting this project means just doing it?
Putting aside my doubts, insecurities, preparations and pre-planning. What if doing what I’m supposed to do means just doing it?
What would I be doing if this project were ready to go? I’d be working it. Not thinking about it. Not scheduling it. Planning it. Contemplating it. Worrying about it. Structuring it.
I’d be working it. Not letting it work me over.
It really is just that simple.
Take the first step.
I’m on a path that I can’t see the end of. Maybe I’m not supposed to. Maybe this is part of stepping out in faith. Maybe an unforeseen part of this project is that some of it is still unforeseen. Maybe I just need to stop saying “maybe…” and instead say
And everywhere I look, I’m being nudged onto the path. Pushed to participate.
I’m no longer on the sidelines, waiting for direction.
I’m doing it.
One baby step at a time.
And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!

FIVE THINGS FRIDAY: Everything Old is NEW Again
Nicely said, and just about what I needed to hear….
What a wonderful, positive post that encourages! I had a designer make a banner for an ETSY shop for the new year sometime this week. I keep putting this off due to work, home etc etc, but my goal will not get done without me pushing myself. Now I have a goal to work towards. Thanks for the reminder!!
