The perfect time to begin

It’s a new day, a new month, a new year and a new decade.

If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to begin, that time is now.

Start the blog, writing the book, writing songs, writing poetry, take that class, visit that new city, initiate plans with that person you met recently, start that podcast, share your photography or whatever it may be.

So, often we hold off from starting because we think that we’re not ready or we’re waiting for the right time.

But there is no right time, it’s a myth and you’ll always be able to find an excuse as to why you should put off that thing for just a little bit longer.

Maybe you don’t feel comfortable enough with how your voice sounds to start a podcast. But maybe if you just started the comfort would come with time. Plus most people don’t like the sound of their own voice when they hear it back, so you’re not alone.

The difference is they choose not to indulge in that feeling because they know that they have something worth sharing.

If you’ve been waiting for to start, start now.


A daily practice

It always surprises me how at the same time as being inconsistent and undisciplined with some things, I manage to be the opposite in other areas.

Writing, gratitude and drinking water are all daily practices that I manage to keep with a fair amount of ease. After a terrible nights sleep when I wake up feeling fatigue and my eyes are sunken, I still manage to say ‘I’m grateful for blah, blah, blah…’ at least a couple of times.

When it comes to writing, not a day goes by that I don’t write on my phone, paper or even mentally, just thinking and plan things out.

But on the flip-side there are a long list of things I’ve wanted to become daily or even just regular habits and somehow they never seem to stick.

Perhaps it’s because they require more effort, they’ll result in me having to put myself out there more or maybe I’m just not committed enough.

Whatever the case is, I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to develop new daily practices, starting with this blog.

See you tomorrow.
