Procrastination and excuses are never going to get us anywhere fast (or slowly for that matter). We can continue on this path for years on end and hope that some things are miraculously going to change (they’re not, cause lets just be honest now), when in actual fact we are inevitably still going to be in the same place, treading the same water and viewing the same surroundings year in and year out. Life on repeat just like the movie Groundhog Day.
I’m quite sure plenty of us are deathly afraid of the unknown being the fearful humans that we are, but as I have learnt along the way , the only constant in life is change, and its not necessarily a bad thing no matter how daunting it may seem. Things change, people change, needs change or are finally realized, wants change, life changes. Sometimes, we have to stop treading the same damn water, move those lil legs and swim (doggy paddle if you must, but move yo ass!) We are either allowing fear to control us and hold us back, or we are going to control that fear. Stop putting things off, stop making excuses and forge on ahead like warriors (not worriers). Been there, done that and bought that t-shirt (which is currently hanging in my cupboard along with the many others I have acquired over time!) It’s like all the clothes in your cupboard that you haven’t worn in the last 5 years , last 4 years or even the last 2 years , chances here are , you are never going to wear those clothes again…never! It’s not even that you’ve put on weight (clothes elves can be a thing mind you!) and that they no longer fit, but perhaps over the years your body shape has changed, maybe it never actually fit properly in the first place… point is, they are not serving you by being there. They could in fact be the absolute perfect fit and style for another, but for you and your wardrobe…its spring cleaning time. There is no time like the present.
Make space for the new, let go of the old and that which no longer serves you (maybe never did). Decide to decide , and live your best life and one that makes you smile from the inside out. Inside out smiles are the best kinda smiles!
Thoughts to ponder… if you had one day left on earth, to change things, to be living the life you want or wanted, living where you want, with who you want…. What would you do! …Now with that answer, go do it! The only person stopping you, is YOU! Its far easier for us to make a million and 5 excuses than it is to be perfectly honest with ourselves and others. Sometimes things happen to wake us up and open our eyes (and sometimes it’s like a bucket of ice cold water thrown over our head in the middle of the night to jolt us awake!). Awake now, are we!?
So while there are millions of magical fluffy dandelions out there to wish apon, sometimes you have go a step further and help bring those wishes to life. If a wish is placed in your heart, you are also equipped to make it a reality by the choices and decisions you make. Its up to you. September resolutions… cause New Year Resolutions are so last year.
