It’s been months of blog-free nights. It actually feels kind of funny sitting here typing away my thoughts. Kind of like an old healthy habit trying to make it’s way back in. Craving it, wanting it, but not really knowing how to begin. It’s easy to blow it off one more day. I’ll start tomorrow, my famous line. Eating less sugar, drinking more water, practicing more yoga. You name it, the list goes on. I want to write. I refuse to put it off any longer. But where do I even start?
Sometimes it can feel daunting. The very thought of trying to start. Of committing to something, knowing that it will be anything but easy at first. That’s when it’s important to remember this: just start. No matter how awkward or uncomfortable it may feel. Somewhere, anywhere. Just start. If you know what you want, and you know where you want to be, all you have to do is take that first step. One strong and confident simple step in the direction you choose. That’s it. Which is exactly what I’m doing with this post. Starting. Creating a new habit. Creating new momentum. Creating change. How else do you think it’s gonna happen?!
