Me, doing!

“I want the whole life to be the journey that gets you to the realist place in your psyche that you can get to. Thats what you should be able to paint.”

~Susan Rothenberg, Artist

The Doing.

This is what it is all about.

We can think, ponder, dream, yearn, prepare, learn, fret, worry, procrastinate, be intimidated, be afraid and entertain self doubt.

And we do all of that.

But now it is time to do.

Create your creation. Take a risk. Listen to your intuition. Get your hands dirty. Begin. Create what ever it is you are meant to create.

The first steps can be difficult. However, you have created before and you can do it again. Remember how it felt? Engage your mind, your heart and your hand. Flip that switch.

By the way, there are no ideal conditions for creating. So, if you are waiting for the perfect time or the ideal conditions, you may be waiting a long time. And getting nothing done in the process. {Smile}

Do not allow whatever is going on in your life to get in your way and prevent you from creating. Know that there are going to be both internal and external obstacles. And create anyway.

Create an environment that is habit forming. Replace doubt and fear with confidence and action. Remember, Action Quiets Fear.

Ask yourself, “What if?” and “Why not?”

And then go for it!
