June has been MY month so far. As busy as it's been, and as fast as the hours go by, I've been hanging on by a thread and rocking it along the way. Do you ever just get in those moods where you want to accomplish everything you've ever thought about accomplishing? I feel like the past few weeks have been that way for me. I've exercised, I've eaten well overall (not perfect, of course!), I've kept up with stuff around the house, I've worked on design projects, I've made time to read AND time to write in my novel. It's like something has come over me. Something that's saying, "Erin. Quit wishing for things in life and start doing them! You're the one in charge of your success!"
I think it's so easy to make our lists, our daily to-do lists, our 30 before 30 lists, our bucket lists… and then let them fizzle out. Too often I think we make goals, and then put those goals up on a shelf, out of reach. We think okay, those are my goals, I'll get there one day. But yet we go about our day-to-day life, not doing ANYTHING to pursue those goals and dreams. I'm guilty of it too. Sometimes I think of my ultimate goals in life and I think, "Okay- hopefully I've reached those in the next ten years. Or at least in my lifetime."
But why wait? Why not just assume I can go after things NOW? I'm not too young, or too old. I'm not too busy. Ohhh, never use the term too busy when you're thinking about what you want to do with your life. If it's important to you, if it's all you can think about, if it's the only thing you want to do when you wake up? You have time for it.
I'm feeling the motivation today, and I've set a realistic timeline for some of the big things in life I'm currently going after. So go on. Grab those goals off the shelf, or perhaps you've even put them all the way up in the attic. Dust them off, take a deep breath and go after them. You're the only one holding yourself back.
