Start Right Where You Are
Do you ever find yourself planning on beginning something? Waiting for the right time to start? The beginning of the week…after that celebration coming up…after that vacation…after that promotion…when you get that car you want…when you lose those extra 10 pounds?
The thing is, there will always be something else keeping us from beginning unless we decide to begin right where we are. If we start today and in three days from now, we have a set back or something that comes up, we must remember, it was only for that moment.
Life is made up of a multitude of moments. In each moment, we have the opportunity to make a new decision. If a person falls down in the mud and gets dirty, they will not stop bathing or washing their clothes just because they got dirty in that moment…The decision we make in the last moment does not have to dictate the remainder of our decisions.
There is no “right” time to start anything. The “right time” IS when you decide to Start. It is when you choose to honor yourself and the change you desire and Start Doing.
As we enter the third week of the new year, I want to encourage anyone that wants to make change in your life; big or small: Start Now. Start Doing. Even if it is just a little bit. The law of motion dictates that once something is in motion, it takes an opposing force that is even stronger to stop the movement.
Whether you are reading this in January, or mid-summer, know that the time to Start is Now; Right Where You Are. If you have a misstep, if you get side tracked, that is okay.
Give yourself grace.
Just get clear on what you want and remember that Every Moment is a Chance to Begin Again.
