It takes lots of courage to do what you want. Whether its something as simple as getting a new haircut or changing to a new job or moving. Sometimes we don’t make the moves we want because we’re too guilt-ridden. It’s easy to become too concerned about what others might think or if they’d approve our change of direction. The problem becomes that we forget to live life on our own terms. We tell ourselves, we’ll “get to it.”
When we’re getting “ready” to live, we’re not really living (paraphrasing RW Emerson.) On some level we all know this. Nike built an empire with one of the most successful tagline campaigns based on this concept: Just do it.
We all have responsibilities. But a life well-lived in the end is more than just paying the rent, going to work, checking off the bills, shuffling kids to and from, saving for rainy days… Today is a good day to buck up your courage and bridge the chasm between how you spend your time and what is fun and important to you.
For me, thanks to the encouragement I’ve gotten from all of you, writing this blog every day is far more important than “Stranger Things.” Yes, I’d like to understand the excitement about that show—but for me, I’m opting to make the time to write, which is something I love, while taking the risk that my thoughts have been well-received and beneficial to someone…or if I missed the mark.
It takes courage to live your dreams. But doing the extra-over-the-ordinary feels better than anything I can describe. I encourage you today to decide to do something you’ve been afraid of doing…and take the first step towards doing it. The size of the choice is irrelevant. It could be as simple as choosing red nail polish when you always select nude; or growing or shaving your mustache. The point is that you are summoning your courage to do something out of your every day norm…just for you.
Just do it!
