Today is the day! It’s finally the day that I psych myself out and just go for it! It’s the first day of doing something different. It’s the first BIG step in a process of many small steps that have led to this point. I thoughtfully sip my cocoa. It’s a cold winter day.

I tell myself, “I’m ready for something different. Honestly, I have been for a while. I HAVE to make a change.” Doubt and ideas of absolute perfection begin to creep in. I shake my head in rebellion. Isn’t it funny that your biggest ally and enemy can be your own mind? “NO!” I tell myself. “NOW is the time, and yes I may fail. I might fail miserably. At least if I fail, I will have tried.” Then I click on over to Pinterest and give myself a mini pep rally of sorts.

 

First things First!

So here I am writing my first post. Yes, it’s not long. The difference is that today, I chose to just get started. Today, failure was not an option.

Note to self: Remember this first post.
