The Art Of The Start
“The secret to living the life of your dreams is to start living the life of your dreams today, in every little way you possibly can.” -Mike Dooley
Man, our minds. They can work themselves into this ridiculous sort of insane frenzy, over-analyze and paralyze us with SO many unjustified fears.
I am almost embarrassed at how complicated I made this return to my blog. All of these swirling thoughts in my mind for (an-overly-long-length-of-time-we-wont-publicly-admit), an almost maddening abundance of ideas - and the stress of knowing it needed done, weighing on me. The last few years have been riddled with grief, health + relationship challenges and the effects of those combined.
….. This however, isn’t that story.
This is the story of starting over. Beginning again.
(and it’s ridiculously simple once we get out of our own way)
it is the art of becoming, myself.
“Start by doing what's necessary: then do what's possible: and suddenly you're doing the impossible.“ -St Francis Of Assisi
There are at least a billion platitudes out there, but its simple really..
N O W.
…Want to write a novel? Type a word.
…Want to run a marathon? Take a step.
…Want to create a painting? Place paint to canvas.
…Want to make a friend? Say hello.
So, let’s stop procrastinating, stop over-analyzing, stop over-thinking, stop waiting for perfection and stop letting fear dictate our decisions…
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.” -J. B. Priestly
Let’s delight in this grand life together. This fresh start.
We got this!
