If there is something you’ve been thinking of doing but don’t feel ready, JUST START. If you think it won’t be good enough or you’re not talented enough, JUST START. I know all about that inner mean girl that convinces us that we don’t have what it takes.
She tells us that what we have to put out there won’t stand up to what others are doing and that we might as well just play it safe. She would rather see us stay stuck our entire life then allow us to make mistakes.
The flip side to this is the soul that’s inside you that wants to explore its passions and find its purpose.
That soul wants to have fun and try new things and it doesn’t care whether you look like a fool because who cares what other people think?! That soul should be the voice you listen to.
It’s the one that will guide you towards a fulfilling life rather than one where you live in a prison of fear.
Take time today to notice if there is a yearning inside of you that you’ve been ignoring because of fear. Then sit in stillness for a moment and make a promise to yourself that you will listen to those kind whispers that are encouraging you to explore.
I used to get trapped by perfectionism all the time and I do wish I started listening to my soul sooner. That said, I now know when it’s guiding me and even when fear comes up I put one foot in front of the other and get started on what’s calling me.
Wishing you a wonderful day where you take that first step and JUST START.
