What I Wore Today (only not today. It was last week, before I got another bleeping cold.)
Where to start? Where to start? Where to start?
There really is so much to do, so many dreams. So many fears.
It would be easier just to watch tv everyday and take care of the cooking and the house and the kids, and think, because I don't have the ideal situation, the ideal place, the ideal time, I should put off going for those dreams.
But, over the past few years, I've watched myself give up opportunities. I've watched myself put things off for some time later when it will all work so much better. I've watched myself pretend that I was being wise by putting things off, instead of being bok bok chicken.
I'm learning that this is the life I have, and it will never be ideal, so I might as well not wait to get going.
The time is now. There is no time but the present. A stitch in time saves nine, yadda yadda.
There are so many trite phrases about this because it is so true and so common.
So now I'm left with questions...
What steps do I take first?
How do I make sure I am staying on task?
How do I manage the doing of the living in the living of the living.... uh oh, I fear I am already rationalizing myself out of doing the things I need to.
What are the tasks YOU'VE been putting off, hoping for a better day?
Wouldn't it be best if you just did them, and started living in that better day, instead of waiting for it to come to you?
