Coffee is a wonderful thing, but there comes a point when one must admit that it is not a genie.
I am not good at being overwhelmed.
When feeling overwhelmed, never underestimate the power of a few quiet moments, a few deep breaths, aaaaand coffee.
The past few days have been incredible, chaotic, messy, and life-changing- things you expect when you pick up your life and move to a new place. Still, my husband and I have enjoyed the shared time away from computers and general workload in favor of newly discovered local bagels, frequent visits to the dog park, and navigation of new shopping plazas and grocery stores to mitigate the lists of stuff and things needed for our new lifestyle. Three days into this shift and the boxes are all broken down, the suitcases have been stashed, the cupboards are stocked, and we're ready to figure out a new daily norm.
We have this blank slate of opportunity just waiting to be chalked up with stories and plans. My soul is bursting with readiness and enthusiasm. My desk is prepped with all sticky notes and paper clips a girl could ever need. But where to start? That's sometimes the hardest part, but it's inevitable that it happen.
I think the delete key on my keyboard is worn with wear from simply this post alone. My fingers are even paralyzed with how to begin, what to say, how to approach this new stage of my life and my business. At the end of the day though, I am still not sure and will never be sure that I'm doing or saying the right thing. I have plans and dreams and ideas for days that all just need started. Regardless of my confidence, life continues to tick away. I know for sure that I want to embrace it without fear and without hesitation, as long as I can get out of my own way. The only way to accomplish dreams, to make things HAPPEN, is just to dig your feet in and GO. It's as simple at 1, 2, 3.
1. Acknowledge the magnitude of a goal.
2.Determine the time, investment, effort, and dedication it requires.
3. Resolve oneself to daily & actively pursuing the actions that provide measurable success toward that goal.
Ok, so maybe it's not so simple. It's probably the hardest and most complicated 3 steps in the history of 3 step processes. But I've got the first 2 steps down already, so it looks like it's time to get started on #3.
