So I often find myself feeling stuck and not knowing what I want or how to accomplish it when I do. Today was no different. I had a task to complete (write this post) and I put it off until the last minute. At this last minute, I started to feel justified in putting it off until tomorrow because I was sooo tired and I had run out of time and I didn’t know what to write about and blah blah blah… as usual.

But I have a new tool in my box these days and it’s called self-reflection and it works wonders when I’m subconsciously trying to play small. So I stopped myself when I realised I was just making excuses. I mean, running out of time?? What a cop out. My time is not up yet and hopefully won’t be for a long time. Time is also precious and we should be taking responsibility, utilising it to its full potential and expecting more of ourselves than playing the small game we’ve been raised to play. we’re capable of so much more.

It’s time to shine. Stop making excuses to play small just because the rest of the world says it’s ok. It’s time to build a better life and it starts with the elimination of excuses. It doesn’t have to all happen in one day but it does usually happen one day at a time. So today I choose to start moving, to create and deliver, to rise to the occasion, to speak todays truth.

I know it’s a small offering but it feels good to get it done. Hopefully, it will help someone out there get up off their butts too and take one little step towards accomplishing their dreams. I’m gonna go get mine are you ready to go get yours? Comment below and let me know what your next step is going to be. Let’s get over our fears and frustrations, create a life we love and accomplish our dreams together.

  1. I like how you referenced, “playing small.” Why do we all do that? I feel like it is very common for folks to do the minimum and feel like they have accomplished something. I don’t want to play small anymore. I want to stretch and take risks and take leaps towards accomplishing my goals. Thanks for reminding me NOT to play small.

    I was in a similar boat – I got home later than usual tonight. While I had the bare bones of my post written out, I had to edit it before I could post, and almost put it off. I’m glad I stuck to my guns on the very first day, too!

    I know you referred to it as “a small offering” but it is not small at all. I always thought at my age it is too old to have another dream. I had to be satisfied with what I had. (and I am.) But I am going to start a new blog now.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement! I occasionally get suspicious that I am sabotaging myself or playing small. I try to gently get myself back on track when I do.
