Ain't Nothing To It, But To Do It

Updated: Apr 24, 2018

A plan delayed is not a plan denied. Whew! Took a sister a minute to get here...and by a minute I mean a whole year and a few months past the time I originally said I would launch my blog. Man, when folks say, "Life comes at you fast", they weren't lying! And then of course I add to the mix with my doubt, fear, and just plain old procrastination. We can be our own worst hindrance sometimes.

I swear I could come up with a highly plausible excuse "why not to" or "now isn't a good time" for just about everything. And then one day I find myself at yet another funeral and I had to ask myself, "What are you doing with your life?". Yes, life does come at you fast and it can end just as quickly. Now, are you where you want to be in life right now? Who or what are you allowing to hold you back? These are some of the questions I had to ask myself. I had no idea what I was waiting why was I holding myself back for. As for myself, I'm just tired of being tired, scared of my own shadow most days, and stuck in the mundane existence other 9 to 5ers endure. My blood pressure literally rising to the point of being put on medication, then having a panic attack one day that led me to the hospital (not my finest moment by the way), and living life as a 40 something single woman began taking its toll. Mild depression led to restlessness and being extremely uncomfortable-with EVERYTHING!

So here I am now. Writing my little heart out. I may not be where I want to be in life at this very moment, but 2018 is going to be the starting point of me moving in the direction of following through on the dreams and plans I have for my life. This life is not a dress rehearsal, there is no intermission. It goes on even when you decide not to. So, if you find yourself in a similar situation now is a good time as any to pick yourself up and get to work on yourself. The life you want isn't going to just fall in your lap. You have to cultivate that thing, work hard at it, and enjoy the work along the way.

Please keep in mind, you are not unique to this situation. There are plenty of people like you and I. But you know how we can differentiate ourselves? We can start getting ourselves together and begin living our best life. You ready? Let's get to it!
