The thing about being what you want to become, is that thare are so many reasons (excuses?) not to do the tasks that are involved.
But I don’t have time.
But I’m not good at it.
But what if I make a mistake? (That’s the biggest one for me.)
The truth is, I am never going to be what I want to be, if I don’t just do it. (Yeah, I know, Nike commercial.)
However, (see what I did there?) the funny thing is that my approach to different tasks seems to be changing ever so slightly. For instance, I picked up my guitar this morning, and played and sang something that I learned a long time ago. (If you really want to know, it was “Four Strong Winds”.) And I really sang. Not just singing along, but really singing. Because, you see, I love to sing. And I started to get goosebumps.
These goosebumps weren’t because I was singing so well. They were because I was actually enjoying what I was doing. I was playing my guitar, and I was singing. and it was fun! In fact, when I finished, I hugged my guitar.
So, yeah, I usually have a really big but.
I’m working on making it a lot smaller.
