Will you keep sitting and waiting? Or will you do the damn thing?

Who are you? text vertically along a photo of a woman standing on a beach looking skywards with the text journaling prompts for uncovering who you are below

It’s easier to do the damn thing than it is to continually think about doing it.

 
Have you ever noticed that?

So many times you think, and think, and think some more about getting the damn thing done. You think so much that the very idea of actually doing it makes you want to curl up and hide.

It’s easier to think about the thing than do the thing.

Not because doing the thing is hard (remember, doing it is easier than ceaselessly thinking about it).
 

No, it’s easier to think than do because doing has the potential to create a different result.

 
And boy howdy, different results can be scary mofos.
 

Even desirable different results freak us out because our minds are conditioned to value safety and security—aka the familiar.

 
So, we think…

and think…

and then think a little more.

Until…
 

You either decide to just fucking do it already.

 
Or…

You waste away the opportunity, the potential, the possibilities that doing it brought with it.

Like all things, it’s your choice which way you go.

Are you content to sit and think while your life passes you by?

OR

Are you going to put all the bullshit flying around your mind aside, roll up your sleeves and just do the damn thing already?

It’s your choice.

Neither is right or wrong.

There are consequences to both.

Make your choice.

Follow through.

And keep on going.

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
