do the thing you cannot do
Feeling all the feels about big goals and uncharted waters today. We've got some serious learning curve action ahead of us - so I'm channelling my inner Picasso and doing my best to remember that you can't learn to walk without falling on your face.
Most of us have told ourselves we can't go after our big dreams "until". I can't do it UNTIL I'm a certified expert. I can't do it UNTIL I finish my degree. I can't start UNTIL I'm perfectly ready. I can't do it UNTIL the kids are in school. Sure - lots of those things might be nice to have, but are they really the MUST HAVEs we think they are?
My current adventure started before I was ready. I didn't have all my ducks in a row. I didn't really feel that I knew how to do what was coming. I was pregnant and scared and unsure. It was pretty much the worst timing possible. But it was jump or be pushed. Being present in that moment brings a special (terrifying) clarity.
Most of the barriers between us and the life we want to live are self-imposed. Those MUST DOs weren't really MUSTs afterall. I leapt, fell on my face, continue to fall and fail daily - but guess what - I'm DOING IT. You know, that thing I couldn't do before!
Here's to all of you out there doing the things you can't do!! You've got this.
