“Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just……start.”
I don’t know who the author is of that quote. Its awesome….my very first blog entry and I start with a quote who’s author I don’t even know. I don’t think they would mind. It’s kind of the point, right? To just make the leap into something unknown.
I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a long time now. I held back for all the reasons we give ourselves excuses to not start anything meaningful. “It’s going take too much time”, “I don’t have the right skill set for this”, “Its going to cost too much money”, “what if I don’t succeed”, “Its scary”….blah, blah, blah. So what?
I was going back and forth on this subject, not because of any outside influence. Most people I spoke to about it were supportive. I found I was talking myself out of something I really wanted to do. How silly is that? Self doubting. Filling my own head with the idea that too many people blog. How will I make a difference? Then I started asking myself this question……how many brands are there of anything (vegetable oil, toilet paper, etc) that have a spot in the world? A million!!! Somewhere, someone said “I want to make toilet paper” and despite any adversity they started and fought for their shelf space at the store. Seriously, just start!
So, that’s what I’m doing! Starting. I have no degree in journalism, no English major to back this up….nothing even remotely related to writing. Or spelling. Or grammar. So if you don’t see a comma where one should be placed, well, now you know why.
This blog will be dedicated to living a healthy, balanced life, where I will speak about my journey in being fit while baking. Its a paradoxical, juxtaposition way of life as you really have to pay close attention to when that balance gets out of whack. Its what I do. I love every minute of it.
That’s what we all want, right? To love what we do. Then start. Just start. Start with your fitness journey. Start with a new education. Start with a job, or a move, or a whole new life. Bring love into your life and that will never be a wrong choice.
Find a way to do it with what you have, in your head, in your wallet, in your heart and take the leap.
