One step at a time…
It’s often the case that we can procrastinate and not get anything done, held back by fear or those around us who say, “Why would you want to do that?”
But if you allow your life to be governed by what if’s then you will never be able to move forward at all.
When I first put a line in the sand and said that I was going to be a children’s author, there were some people who at the time scoffed and said “Yeah, right!”
Needless to say I’m no longer in touch with those people, because why would I want to surround myself with negativity or with people who don’t believe in me?
Why would you want to have those messages going round and round in your head.
This is one of my favourite quotes – it’s from Audrey Hepburn and looks at possibilities, discounting negativity.
Because if you are to get to where you want to be right now – it requires you to start taking action. To move forward, one step at a time.
When I first returned to work after having J, everything was misaligned and I wasn’t where I wanted to be at all. I missed him terribly, and there was no balance.
I’m not saying that everything is perfect now, as it’s far from it – but I’m getting there – one book, one wedding, one more client at a time. And I’m building the life that I believe I deserve.
And I really hope that you get to do the same too. That if you have an idea, rather than allowing those around you to knock it down – that you take the first few steps to start making it your reality. Who knows where you could be in a few months or a year from now.
Isn’t it better to try and find out, rather than wondering what if?
