I know of a lady who for 29 years, said she was going to pursue a dream. Finally, right before the 30th year she found the courage to do it.
It didn’t turn out as big as she had imagined, but I’m proud of her that she finally did it.
What have you thought about doing, but have not done?
How long will you allow “This year,” to turn into “Next year,” to turn into NEVER?
How long will you hold yourself back?
How long will you allow fear and self doubt to keep you stuck in a place you don’t want to be, and away from the place you want to be?
How long will you sit on the sidelines and watch others pursue their dreams?
How long will you say you can’t? “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” ~Henry Ford
How long will you say it will take too long? “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” ~ Earl Nightingale
It’s up to you to conquer your fears and quiet the self doubt in your mind.
Yes, you could fail. But, you also could succeed. Or, you can learn from it and try again.
It’s NEVER too late to start!
What ONE THING can you do TODAY to move a step closer towards your dream, or a desire you have?
Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!

I struggle with this a lot in my writing.
My love language is verbal affirmation, so when I don’t hear anything from readers I automatically think I’ve failed. I’m trying to write for me thought not them.

I have struggled with that too. You are probably reaching more people than you know because some people just choose not to comment. Don’t take their lack of comments to mean your writing isn’t effective. Be encouraged and keep writing. Someone is waiting to hear what you have to say. Have a beautiful day!
Hi! I have struggled with that too. You are probably reaching more people than you know because some people just choose not to comment. Don’t take their lack of comments to mean your writing isn’t effective. Be encouraged and keep writing. Someone is waiting to hear what you have to say. By the way, I love the name of your blog. Have a beautiful day!
