Just Do It

Kudos to the genius at Nike who came up with that slogan! I can’t tell you how many times that phrase has run through my head. When I think about pursuing my dreams with reckless abandon, I hear the words “Just do it!” in my head… and I get excited!!! Yet I don’t just do it. I choose security and predictability instead. When I complain about needing to exercise more, I hear the words “Just Do It!!!” screaming at me and yet more often than not I don’t… well, just do it. Instead I would rather sit on the couch with a glass of wine watching Grey’s Anatomy. I have always loved to write and so I contemplate different writing projects… a book, a letter, a journal entry… something!!! “Just Do It”, a voice inside of me SCREAMS!!! But alas… there is always an excuse… something “more important” to do… laundry, dishes, watch more TV… I don’t “Just Do It”.

But the problem is… these desires just don’t go away! The desire to improve ourselves, follow our hearts, pursue truth and be the best, healthiest pople we can be are yearnings we all have from deep within.

So… what holds us back? Fear? Anxiety? Laziness? Undoubtedly, those are just a few of MANY things that prevent us from pursuing our dreams.…

So, my goal for this new year is to JUST DO IT. (Maybe if I keep repeating myself enough it will actually happen)! Seriously though… I am tired of feeling like time has passed me by and I haven’t accomplished anything of importance. As the saying goes… I am going to live each day like it’s the last day of my life. Why not just take that cliché and run with it?!?!! What’s the worst that could happen? I actually improve myself? Life a more fulfilling life? I think I can handle that.
