This is one kind of sums up my last few months… heck.. probably almost the last 9 months. I’ve invested way too much time and worry into my fears and self-doubts instead of focusing on my dreams and goals. Of course I have some ready-made excuses that I’ve been playing over and over in my mind that I’ve justified all these delays. I need to reverse this – doubt my fears instead of doubting my dreams!
The biggest shift in my time has been the fact we got a new puppy! First dog ever for our family. 50 years old and this is my first dog, hard to believe but true. I’ve known that I have to re-focus and re-prioritize my time to the things that not only I have to do, but those things that I want to do. I’ve had too many reminders lately of things that I’ve seen around me, the people I’ve met, stories I’ve heard and read and things on TV and online. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it until I get going – it’s time for me to get off my butt and do things that I have to do.
Being 50 years old with my first dog also is a sign that time has flown by in my life and I don’t have all the time left that I think I might. It is very exciting to think about reversing this statement… to get my dreams and goals going in the right direction to where I know they can go. I am continuing to run into people that not only have a message to share, but that I am the one that needs to share my message in order to help them with theirs.
With the start of my 28th school year coming up quickly, it’s time for me to get re-energized, re-committed, and re-focused for the things that deep down in my heart I know I MUST do. It’s time for all of us to doubt our fears instead of doubting ourselves and our dreams. What do you think?
