Start at the beginning, wherever you are now.
Five years ago I would have never said “I’m a writer.” I didn’t believe it, but each day or at least many days I did something to “be a writer” – I wrote, I read and then I wrote some more – I edited – I trashed – I wrote some more.
Today, I AM A WRITER. I believe it. I have never published anything other than on this website, but what does that mean? I write everyday, even if it’s only a little, I am a writer. My goal is to write and to publish one day, but first – you’ve got to write. If I focus on the publishing part – I’d never write, it’s too overwhelming to think about, instead I write.
I get better at it every time I show up to write.
If you don’t start today – when will you start? Tomorrow? When you retire? When things settle down?
Things never settle down, unless you make them settle down, what better way than to start a practice for bringing something larger, more meaningful into your life.
The more times you begin to do what you want to do, the easier it will become. If you stop for a while, start again, keep showing up, whenever you can.
What will you say when time has gone by and you haven’t started?
Start. Now. GO.
What are you going to start today?
