August Thoughts

It is the first day of August and it is quiet in my home this morning.  Our Saturday mornings will soon be filled with soccer games and other school obligations, so I realize how rare moments like this will be.

I wanted to share a post that really spoke to me this morning.  Perhaps it speaks to you as well? 

Ash Ambirge, author of the blog The Middle Finger Project,  writes:

The only way you can stumble upon conviction in yourself - Is by not stumbling upon it…but putting yourself in situations requiring it.

By making promises to yourself that you’re going to do something…and then doing it. Come hell or high water.

Follow through.

Even when you don’t want to. Even when you’re scared to death. Even when you aren’t so sure anymore. And let nothing stop you.

This is how you learn to trust yourself. Little by little, promise by promise, vow by vow, action by action. And soon, you won’t want to write a note to the world. Because you’ll know that the real person you’re bailing on… Is yourself.

Let this be a reminder that whatever it is you decide to do - to write daily, begin an exercise program, take photos, paint - commit yourself to doing just that.

Follow through, even when you are scared, and let nothing stop you.

Enjoy your weekend, friends.
