Spring cleaning my entire life. For a few months now. Especially since my employer went out of business in December. Working on all those projects I’ve put off for way too long.
Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with anxiety. So much to do. So much to process. So much to feel. Ugh. Yet it’s all coming together. Slow, but steady.
I’m excited. Building a good foundation for the future. Especially for business. And better relationships and physical health.
Sustained growth requires so much discipline. And being internally motivated. Versus just waiting for direction from others.
Growth requires pushing through the fear of failure and potentially appearing foolish. Remember, if they’re not in the arena with you – why give loose lips and condescending looks so much power?
We all have the same amount of hours in the day. Yes, things have happened to you – but what are you going to do about it now? Are you going to be able to live well with the excuses you keep telling yourself?
A friend told me yesterday: one step doesn’t feel like a lot, but a lot of little steps add up eventually. Choose life and live!
I think of the parable of the talents. The only one who was in trouble was the one who did nothing. Because of fear. You are loved. You’ve been given your own unique mixed bag of blessings.
What do you want? What are you going to be able to say you did with yourself today? At least try something. One thing. For you. To reclaim some self-respect. And enjoyment.
Religion incorrectly requires you to prove your devotion. Knowing Him makes you realize His is not in question. Real love gives you wings and wants the best for you.
Maybe it won’t work out. But at least you will have tried. At least you’d know. This existence of watching the clock while waiting around for a “miracle” will always be here if you want to come back to it.
Fear and ego – the deathly duo. The good thing about failure is if you face it then you realize it’s more bark than bite. And newsflash: we’re all humans fumbling around trying to figure it out.
Who do you think is keeping the real score? What is going to matter on your last day? I say go for it. Give it your all. Not recklessly. But with your whole heart. All your strength. So that you are satisfied with your effort.
Progress, not perfection. Never give up.
