If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.
I went through and cleaned up my Pinterest boards a little over the weekend. I came across the above quote that I had pinned months ago and it really hit a nerve with me. I’ve taken so many risks in business and life over the past year and as a result really feel like I’m starting to settle into a sense of being and a lifestyle that feels good on the inside. But here’s the catch. My life, while wonderful is so so far from perfect. There’s things I’m working on consistently, things that I get worked up over, bad habits I could afford to break, good habits I could stand to keep, and the list goes on. Living with purpose and meaning takes work, and making decisions to get to where we want to be is uncomfortable.
But that’s exactly what makes the above so lovely, right? That little quote taunts us a little and makes us wonder if we’re really wasting time just waiting for that perfect moment to do whatever it is we want to do. For me, at one point, it was starting my business (thankfully I didn’t dwell on this for too long). Then at another point it was choosing to rebrand my business. Then shortly there after it was adding floral deisgn to my offerings. That move took a lot of guts to make for a lot of reasons. For some of you maybe it’s getting to the gym to lose the weight you gained during your pregnancy. Maybe it’s going back to school to get your masters. Or maybe it’s something as simple as cleaning out the garage in anticipation of spring. We all have things we put off or hold back from because we don’t feel ready.
So get ready. And do it. Read this post here too. Around this time last year I took a blogging, social media and all around life break because I wasn’t ready to live the life I wanted. For a good two weeks I cried big girl tears and felt sorry for myself every single day. Poor Andrew probably dreaded coming home to my misery. I felt like I had to make decisions based on how they would make others feel and I absolutely felt the negative effects of thinking this way. Fixing this mind set wasn’t an overnight fix but where I am now 365 days later is truly and absolutely 110% an amazing blessing.
Go on with yo badselves today, blogettes. You’re ready! xoxo
