How often do we say we want to do something and never do it?
How often does opportunity come along for us to do something awesome and we come up with reasons not to do it?
One of my favorite books is by Donald Miller. It’s called A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. (If you want to know what it’s about, I suggest you read it!). Anyway, there’s a line in the book that says “live a good story”. I don’t remember what page, but those four words made a difference for me. I’ve sucked at it lately, but I’m making that transition again into living a good story. I come up with too many excuses and I’m simply left with another boring day in the books. What really comes of playing small? What really comes of always playing it safe?
I want to do more. Not just for myself and by myself, but with my husband and daughter and family and friends. The only person who really says we cannot do something is ourselves. I’m my biggest obstacle and I’m learning to simply get out of my way. If I want to do something, I need to figure out a way to get it done. I can’t write about experiences if I don’t have any.
It’s time to stop being boring and start having fun again.
It’s time to add some exciting chapters to the story of my life.
