“What you can do, or dream you can, begin it; boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”
I’ll be honest with you, I’m running out of things to write about, you guys. This is day #18 of what I promised would be 30 days in a row of blog posts. The cool thing about this is that the REASONS I started this project in the first place are now a thing of the past. I am 100% comfortable letting other people read what I’ve written. I’m 100% comfortable being SEEN for the first time in my life. I’ve finally gotten out of my own way and it feels fan-freaking-tastic.
So, I just wrote a whole other blog post about taking taking responsibility and I’ll probably use parts of it in the future, but for now I just want to say that the ONLY thing stopping you from living the life you want is YOU. Believe me, I know. Get over it. And do it now. Life is too damn short.
What has been really fun and interesting throughout this process is that what I’ve been writing about are they things I needed to learn in order to be comfortable writing. Super cool. Very unexpected.
Do I want to be a personal development blogger for the rest of my life? Probably not. That’s not what I started out to do and it’s not my mission at the moment. Am I passionate about personal development because it is a HUGE part of my life and always will be? Yes. This work is what allowed me to free myself from myself. It’s hard work. It feels weird and lonely and uncomfortable and scary. But it also feels empowering and hopeful and amazing and sexy and fun.
I didn’t set out to write about anything in particular. I just set out to break down my own walls. And that is exactly what is happening.
So, if YOU are experiencing doubt or fear or limitation in any way, check out some of the tools that are available as a way of breaking free of all that. A LOT of people are talking about this right now. It’s a hot topic and there is a reason for that! It is time to break free of our self-imposed limitations. It is time to stand in our power. It is time to create the life we’ve always dreamed of.
I am going places right now that I didn’t even know existed a few weeks ago. And this is happening because I took the first step. That’s all it is. I knew I needed to write, to get over my fear of being judged and failing, and so I began. I listened to my intuition and I charged into my own resistance and I HAVEN’T STOPPED. The consequences of that decision have been miraculous and tremendous and I cannot say enough how important it is to simply begin.
So whatever it is you need to do, BEGIN IT. Who knows where you will end up? That’s the fun part. Every day you choose where to go next and the things that will happen as a result of taking that very first step, are PURE MAGIC.
