Even When We Don’t Want To...


I just got home from a long day, I’m tired and I don’t want to write tonight. 

I don’t have a plan and I don’t have it all figured out. Welcome to life. 

Here I am anyway. 

I was thinking on my drive home about how I didn’t want to write when I got home...

So this is what I shall write about tonight! 

While it doesn’t seem like much, it is the pencil to the paper, the pedal to the medal, that gets things done, that moves things along. 

How often are there things we simply don’t want to do and so we let ourselves off the hook? How many reasons and excuses we can find for why we don’t accomplish our goals and our dreams! Yuck!

Sometimes the simplest of things, and sometimes the very uncomfortable things. 

It is sometimes those exact things that we don’t want to do that we need to do in order to accomplish the bigger picture goals that we say we want! (That was a mouthful, I know.)

I haven’t WANTED to confront the things that I’ve needed to confront within myself in order to bring the writer and the speaker in me back to life for years. 

But now that I’m actually DOING it, magic is happening within me that simply can’t be portrayed on these pages yet. Bear with me, it will come in time. 

I think the point of all this is that when you keep your goals and your vision at the forefront of your mind and continue to visualize, create and take action around them, no matter how small, eventually something big happens. 

Eventually your vision and your mission becomes bigger and more important than the little things that you don’t want to do. That is when it all begins to come to life. 

That is when the reasons and excuses no longer work, when you can’t even B.S. yourself anymore. 

No matter how small the action may seem in that moment, it all counts, it all moves you closer, helps you bloom, feeds the bigger vision, serves the greater mission. 

That is when you begin to step up and into the person and the life that you’ve always dreamed of. 

Even when you don’t want to... (because ultimately you really do want to)

Thank you for being here for this madness ;)
