Are you that person who is always making excuses about starting that ‘thing’. You’re always talking about it. Its engraved on your heart and mind but it’s just never the right time? Well today I’m here to tell you the time is right!
To be honest you don’t need my permission or anyone else’s, you just need your own! When you figure out that you are the only one who can give you permission to chase your dreams then you have won. This is when the magic starts.
A few years ago, I felt like I was bulldog chained up to a poll, frothing at the mouth, trying my hardest to pull away from this chain. I knew something was holding me back. Something was stopping me from pursuing those things that were in my heart. I felt a heaviness and trapped. I didn’t feel free and I so desperately wanted to be.
It didn’t take me long to realise I was trapping myself.
I was in my own prison, created by my own mind. I realised it was a reflection of the people I had around me at the time and the words I was hearing and reading. Up until this point I thought I needed permission. I thought that unless my superior (or who I thought was my superior) gave me permission then I couldn’t move forward. This was obviously I lie.
The relief that came following this realisation was life changing! Seriously life changing! I don’t need anyone’s permission and I’m comfortable with every choice I make. My husband has a phrase he uses often which I now live by ‘I would rather try and fail then not try at all’.
Over the past few years I have pursued many dreams in my heart and some have failed and some have taken me to places I could never have dreamed of. It’s as if the walls have been shattered around me and I can see clearer and move forward.
So, the message today is clear and simple ‘Now is the right time always’! There’s nothing worse than looking at someone’s life from the outside and seeing them not move forward because of the many excuses they have. You will never be ready friend, I promise you. Do it ‘not ready’ and watch how all of a sudden it somehow just all falls into place.
I have a picture on my wall that says ‘Some people want it to happen, some people wish it to happen, Others make it happen’. I want to be that last one. Don’t leave this world full of regrets.
