So there’s obviously a lot that can be done tomorrow or the day after but metaphorically speaking, those goals and dream starters and ‘I wishes’ we keep procrastinating on ... the excuses we make to ourselves for why we should wait another day... We know deep down that we are just fooling ourselves. It’s about us and no-one else. It’s our lives and no one else’s. We are probably afraid of failure, an unpleasant outcome. Left to ourselves or if we thought no one was watching we probably won’t care and just dive straight in and keep jabbing at it until we get our desired results but “someone’s watching” is what we believe or tell ourselves “someone’s always watching” so we look at ourselves from a spectator’s stand point and just drown ourselves in judgement.
Bottom line what ever it is, be it someone we want to see, that forgiveness we want to seek for, that college we want to apply to or job we want take a stab at, the love of our lives we have been drooling over from a distance, the story we’ve be dying to tell, restaurant we want to try, trip we only fantasise about taking....
We should’ve taken yesterday which really started a life time ago... take that scary but absolutely necessary first step and see how liberating and fulfilling it is... and continue to take that step one foot in front of the other!
Coming from where I’m coming from I have taken more first steps in the last two years than I took in the 10 years before and these are all steps I dreamt of yesterday 12 years ago... see what I mean?
The one thing I know for sure is putting off something we know we want to do so badly only means it will take twice as much effort mentally to bring ourselves to do it. Believe me, didn’t have to read a bunch of books or listen to a bunch of podcasts to figure this one out life has been my test tube and I am sure you’already know... If you are reading this, you know there was probably a tomorrow you promised more than just yesterday and still promising .... #whatareyouwaitingfor
