I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. A lot of journaling, pinning, researching, observing… and quite frankly I’m not only stressing myself, I’m getting bored. Am I ever going to cook the 800 recipes I have pinned on Pinterest? Or fit into my white jeans I’ve had in my closet for three summers? I’m not even going to come close, if I don’t start DOING. Thinking about a business idea can only go so far. What I am really doing is wasting time and giving myself anxiety. I have this reality in my mind of the life I want, but actual reality requires much more. Only through purposeful action will goals be achieved. I feel like I’m on the right path, but now is the time to get out of the car and experience some of the stops along the way.
My boyfriend and I were driving through the South Island of New Zealand and on the way to Queenstown was an amazing view of Mount Cook. I wanted to stop and grab a photo, but my boyfriend had been driving for hours and was determined to get to our destination. He said we would stop there on the way back. Well, a few days later, when we left Queenstown, we decided to go another way. I missed my chance. Maybe one day I will get another, but the 22 hours of travel time, doesn’t make it easy. Point being- I’m all for the journey, but I’m tired of putting things off.
Now is the time to cook that recipe, run that marathon- whatever I have been thinking about, because I may not get another chance.
