You know your “it”, a hobby, a new business venture, selling it all and hitting the road, all of the above. I just read an article about an inmate on death row who has been in prison for 17 years waiting to die due to a testimony from one witness: the person who killed the person Richard allegedly paid for the hit. His proclaimed innocence, the twisted version of justice (the person who did the killing did not receive the death sentence as part of his plea bargaining) are for a different post on a different blog. Reading Richard’s words, his viewpoint of the world, how he finds a way to laugh, to love, hope and his realizations that a good life need not be complicated, touched me. It made me realize I needed to hug my family more, give more love, more compassion and I needed to choose some new goals and get after them.
Some friends were joking the other night with the phrase “what’s the worst thing that can happen?” discussing various elements of decisions and personal safety. Jokes aside, it is a good question, one worth asking any time we have something pulling us forward, a calling from our heart, saying “trust me.”
A quote on my Facebook feed this morning said “doubt kills more dreams than failure ever could.” So true, so unnecessary.
92% of people don’t realize their New Year’s Resolutions, but many people don’t even get started. Take a step, do one thing towards a goal you have. Write down the goal right now, write down 5 steps you need to take to get it done, then do one. Wake up tomorrow, do the next one.
Rooting for you over here, you got this!
TLDR; Freaking do it.
