You know, I could sit here and blab on about how there are so many things I’d like to do in my life. So many things I’d like to try to see, and experience. But that doesn’t get me out there doing, seeing, or experiencing, does it?
I can pin for hours on my Pinterest boards all the exercises I want to do to get fit, or inspirational quotes that make me dream bigger, or homemade lotions I want to make, or crafts I want to try, but it doesn’t get any of them done, does it?
Blabbing and pinning get me nowhere.
And I want to go somewhere.
So what are YOU waiting for?
Try something new today. And try something else next week. And the week after.
Maybe, this “achieving” thing will become a habit. Because when you try small things and succeed, sometimes the big things aren’t so scary. Baby steps…it’s how babies first learn to run. But you better believe those first little steps are pretty darn scary for that wee babe. But when she falls, she realizes it wasn’t so bad after all. She just gets back up and tries again.
And before you know it, she’s running.
And what better example for our children can there be? If we don’t sit and wait for life to happen, our children won’t sit and wait. They will be confident in themselves. Confident enough to take risks and try new things…even if that new thing is just an odd looking vegetable on their plates.
So I’m going to stop blabbing now and I’m going to pick one small, achievable thing off my pin boards that I want to try and I’m going to do it. Today.
Thanks for stopping by!
