One day at a time, one action a day. This is my new motto for moving forward and making changes in my life. Releasing my innercheerleader in the privacy of my own home is not getting me anywhere. I need to take the next step. Half the battle of life is just showing up, right?
I detest hot weather and today temperatures are close to 100. I was asked to go out for a walk. This sounded like a terrible idea. In my head I made excuse after excuse- my pale, freckled skin shouldn't be in the sun, I have laundry to do, and most appealing I preferred staying inside on the couch in my air-conditioned home. I changed my mindset and accepted the invitation. I wore a hat and sunglasses to protect my face and started a load of laundry. On my walk, thoughts of inspiration and self-criticism filled my head. Here are a few of my thoughts.
1.) I am scared of success. I have little to no fear of failure.
2.) For one who believes that anything is possible, I sure lack the actions to my beliefs.
3.) I am a dreamer with lots of ideas that rarely turn into anything.
Doing something, even a little something like going on the walk I tried to make excuses for, felt good. I suppose the real trouble comes when I stop dreaming. The dreaming provides the motivation to keep moving forward one action at a time.
