when I’m ready | just do it

You are never completely ready for anything, ever. Never ever. A curveball can hit you square in the face at any given moment, so there is never a ‘right time’ to get things started. Particularly when you feel something in your gut, a stirring that could become something great; it takes courage to pounce on this and just do it.

The art of ‘just doing’ is, in my opinion, a skill that can be honed. Some people are born with it – a little to much of it, at that – and some people need that extra little push to get things moving. Either way, you can always improve on your ability to do rather than think.

There will always be a reason not to do something. For me, my main challenge is getting past the initial stages of a project. I know exactly how it feels to ‘click’ with something, that feeling of not wanting to stop no matter what comes your way. It’s a great feeling, but it doesn’t always come about. There are times when you need to find your groove. Or maybe there isn’t even a groove to begin with, and you have to carve one out with your own two hands. In ways the latter can be even more beneficial; you end up establishing a niche for yourself without even realising. A niche you would never have found if you hadn’t stepped up and done something.

If by some fluke you are reading this, do not be afraid to do. Go for it. Even if you fail spectacularly, you’ll live to tell the tale. I wish I could think of an ending to this post that was a little less cheesy, but a cheesy ending isn’t always a bad ending.

Love and luck,

  2. I agree! We’re never completely ready for what life throws our way. Self doubt, excuses, irrational fears still paralyse me sometimes, but your post encourages me to remember to just live my life. Thank you 🙂

  3. Well said! That is so funny that you mention Nike at the end since they are what first popped in my head when I began reading this well-written post. Advertising (Nike) and great bloggers like you are what can make or break the way we think about ourselves. I look forward to more thought provoking posts!

  4. Clodagh that rhymes with Yoda . . . It’s as if you read my mind today! I have a lot going for a 75-year old, but don’t want to give anything up. And on the other hand, my motivation lately has taken a vacation. Today I had the blahs–finally did get some pix sorted out and filed to a separate drive. You liked my blog–Green–thanks.

    Will be following you,
    Blessings, Patty

      1. Great. My hubby and I were just playing cards and I was telling him about you and how I wished I had your beautiful hair and how amazing it is to connect with someone in another country. Mine is short and spiked here and there and sort of platinum this week 😊. The wedding pix of my hubby and me was taken almost 3 years ago. We met on Christian Mingle and married 5 WEEKS later . . .
        and are soooo happy. Until next time . . .
        Blessings, Patty
