Wow. I did not think part 3 of Setting Intentions would be so difficult for me to write. I wrote on a different subject two weeks ago. Last week I didn’t write.
I think I was afraid to write about action because, well, I am afraid to take action.
As I’ve mentioned before, I am a (fairly) functional adult. But when it comes to acting on my dreams, I can be a bit of a shrinking violet.
I have spent most of my adult life analyzing, thinking, fanaticizing and playing it safe and the idea of committing to any big action publicly is about as exposed as it gets for me.
What if I tell you all and I don’t do it?
What if I fail?
What if I tell you all I want to coach and travel and instead I lay in bed instead for the next 10 months?
What if. What if. What if.
What if I don’t take action? Would I still love myself?
Well, the answer would be yes. And that’s all I need to know to move forward.
And right about now is the perfect time to come back to my fun question…
When the heck in the last two weeks did I start taking action and intentions so seriously? How can I get back to FUN?
And who said a little bit of fun and taking action wouldn’t be hard?
I think this is often the case. Have you ever had the hardest challenges in your life also be the most exhilarating in the end?
I believe taking action for me this year is going to be one of the tallest mountains I will ever climb. I am going to be sore, I am going to cry, I am going to stomp my feet, I am going to want to quit.
But I won’t.
Because I am ready to do something different. I am ready to get out into the world and coach. And teach. And share and love. And be scared to bits when I do it.
And I am ready to travel. To see friends, to see the country, to see the earth, to get out from behind the computer and live on purpose.
I am ready to be exhausted and find my strong, anyway, deep inside of me.
And carry on.
Coaching and traveling. Welcome to my kick ass, taking action 2012.
What dreams do you want to put into action this year?
