Have you ever delayed doing something that you really wanted to do?

Whether it was waiting for the perfect pause to speak your truth, anticipating the precise moment to be the first to say, “I'm sorry", quitting a job, writing a book, learning a new craft, clearing the clutter, or establishing healthier habits, we all have that “something" we want to do, to start, or to finish.

One thing that has been sitting on the top of "my “really wanting to do” list, is starting this blog. I talked about it, wrote for it, and visualized it. So, why have I waited so long to start?

Sometimes we wait to do the things that we really want to do out of fear. Fear of not being good enough, fear of rejection, fear of not being heard or seen as we want to be. Or, as Marianne Williamson eloquently writes,

“ Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?...And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same."

So, what are you waiting to do, start or complete?. Shine your light and set it free.
