I’ve never been big on new year resolutions. Maybe because I figure if I’m going to make a change, I won’t wait. I try to start once I make the decision…in August, April, or November. Or maybe it’s because if I make a resolution on Jan 1 that I’m not prepared to walk out, I might feel that I let myself down all year.
I said I was going to start Skin Deeper years ago, and with each new year, I dreamed up a new piece and tacked it onto my vision board, but that’s pretty much where it ended. I had made notes here and there over time, but my actions toward making it a reality weren’t all the way there. For years, I kept saying this was the year. Well, as 2019 nears it end, I am excited to report that THIS WAS THE YEAR!
I didn’t know how things would turn out or how my social media would be received. But embarking on this endeavor and seeing it blossom into more that I could have imagined has encouraged me, and I hope it has encouraged you as well.
Whether you have to do it scared, or do it taking the babiest of steps (Yes, I realize that’s not a real word.), make moves to fulfill your goal. Even if all you do for now is write down…or talk to a friend about it so you can hear yourself saying it out loud…or put $20 each pay period aside for it…or do some market research…or go in guns blazing with a full investment. Don’t focus on how much time has passed not doing it. Time has not been wasted, as long as you learn something from it…and it’s all a part your journey. So like my shirt says…
Be patient and trust your journey.
