Lights… Camera… Action!

Why is it so easy to sit back and do nothing when what we should be doing is obvious.

Everyone has something they want to do in their lives, whether for an immediate goal or for a long-term future plan. But not everyone is taking the action that they need to in order to achieve that goal.

Your goal may be to get your dream job, to find a partner, to have children, to do more with your life, or even something more general like get into a routine at home.
Whatever you want to do, sitting at home on the sofa is not going to help you achieve it. Unless your goal is to gain weight while vegetating, in which case I’ll say congratualtions. As for the rest of us, we need to get ourselves into gear.

You want a job? Get ready for it by getting educated, or reading up on it, or volunteering in an area related to it. Employers like people who are pro-active.
If you want a partner, well then you need to start talking to members of the opposite sex, or spending more time with the person you like. Sitting back and watching from afar only means waiting for another persons love story to unfold in front of your eyes.

If you want children, then spend some time with kids, get ready for when you do become a parent.
The idea isn’t to do some big drastic gesture, it’s just to take one small step off the starting block, followed by another, and hopefully another.

What action do you need to take next?

Taking Care of Yourself

Take care of yourself!

No matter what you do, who you are and why you are there, we all have an obligation to take care of ourselves. Not for our partner (or prospective partner) not for work or family, but for ourselves.

My friends and I take care of each other, too!

I definitely feel better if I’ve put a little effort into myself.
For some, this may mean wearing make-up, or nice clothes, for others it could be going to the gym or eating healthily. Whatever this means to you, everything leads to one thing; to do the best with what we’ve got is what we should aim for.
I am a five foot tall (153cm), hazel-eyed brunette. There is no use in me trying to be a tall, blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl. I want to be the best petite hazel-eyed girl with brown hair that I can be!

Proud to show who I am

Who do you want to be?

What do you do everyday to take care of yourself?

Confidence

Why is it so easy to focus on what we can’t do, instead of focusing on what we can.

growing more confident everyday

I’ve recently realized that in things that I have confidence in, there is no question, worry or doubt. But the things I don’t have confidence in tend to stop me from taking action.

Recently I’ve been taking action in areas that I used to hold back a lot, and finding that even if there isn’t success, there is reward!

I love red, it’s a great color, but I used to never have the confidence to wear anything but black. Now I’m good with wearing any color of the rainbow! (except yellow or orange, I just don’t like to wear those).

What are you holding back from?

The gifts we give.

How to be gifted;

Very few people on this world are born with a talent that will exceed everybody else. But everyone has the ability to become amazingly gifted in something.

Here are some tips;

1. Find your passion
What do you love, could you spend all day doing it?
I love so many things. How could I possibly narrow that down?

2. Bring your passion into your current skill set.
What are you naturally gifted at?
– write it down.
I can write well (I hope you agree if you’re reading this) and teach well.

What could you be paid for?
Well, I’m already paid for teaching… Yay!
But not yet for writing.

Where those three areas overlap is where we find how to achieve our vision for the future.

But here’s the catch:
We can make our plans we can’t determine our path in life.
Plans change. We need to make sure that we are listening to the right people and choosing to listen to the right advice.

Still, we can’t plan every step of our future.

What is your passion and vision?

Have to or Want to?

It is so easy to start off thinking “I have to…”

But this “have to” could be something that you actually love doing!

Why to we always turn everything into a chore?

The other day I started thinking, “I still have to Journal today…” but as much as I love journaling, that thought turns it into something it shouldn’t be.

So I’m on a mission.

I’m going to change all my “have to” thoughts into “want to”

As soon as I changed the words in my head to “I want to journal today”, inspiration, passion and drive all came back to me.

What are you thinking about the things you love?
