this is the time. there’s no holding back. i’ve found myself at a crossroads in life, again, and instead of falling easily back into old routines, i’m ready to take a chance.
my whole life i have played it safe, have looked before leaping, have gone about doings things ONLY once given permission. i’m finally ready to move past that. no one ever got what they wanted by playing it safe. i am 25 years old, it is officially time to stop playing it safe.
so, where to start? honestly, for me, even typing this out and admitting it is a huge step. today, instead of sleeping in as late as possible and not wanting to do much with my day, i literally leapt out of bed. early. on my day off. i woke feeling inspired, motivated, ready to start the process of bettering my life. at the end of the day, i am the only one who can change things for myself. so why be reliant on anyone else to assist with the steps to get to this point?
while catching up on my DVR this morning, a character said something that really hit home, “logistics are for lame-asses that dont know what they want. i know what i want”. i know its nothing special, but its direct. to the point. and so true. i have been raised to sit and worry about all of the details, to be literally as cautious and responsible as possible in every step i take. but if i know what it will take to make something of myself, why sit and sweat the details? isnt it time to take advantage of what ive been given? of what i know i can do? i think so.
i am 100% grateful to the wonderful, supportive, generous friends in my life who are never short to inspire and motivate me in all actions i take. ideas in my head that only seem like ideas until i have their support that it could, in fact, be my future. everyone should have friends like mine!
all in all, im ready to start. lets get going :)
