Just Do It

It’s raining in here in NYC and I’m tired and I haven’t been sleeping well at all.  Maybe it’s the super moon and the changing of the tides.  Who knows, but all I can think is Waaaaaah, I don’t feel like doing anything!!

Last week I talked about PARTYING W/ YOUR FEAR. Feel the feeling AND keep on truckin’. The comment section in the blog BLEW up, people were committed, excited and ready to rock n’ roll.

I committed to staying in touch with YOU, check in and make sure you were takin’ some action around the things that scared you.

But today, as I sit in my fav café in the West Village, all I could think, was, “Ucch, I don’t feel like writing a blog post! I don’t feel like checking in, being clever, or being honest. I just don’t feeeeel like it.”

(What are some of your excuses? Check out the comments!)

While I don’t feel like it, I promised you and myself I would do it. I committed to checking in.

Do you know where I am going with this?

What happens when we commit to doing something and then we DON’T do it? There is a little tiny part of you, even if it’s just a few cells in your big toe that gets disappointed and bummed out. There is a little piece of you that says, “Damn girlfriend, you said you were going to write and you didn’t. Where else you gonna let me down?”

And while I don’t promote this negative self-talk, it just happens.  It happens, because your soul, your spirit, KNOWS you can do better. KNOWS that you are WONDERFUL, CREATIVE and CAPABLE!

Your SOUL IS ROOTING for YOU and WANTS YOU to succeed and DO GREAT THINGS. Truly. When you don’t follow through you are like that little child who’s dad promised he would be tuck her in at night but he stayed late at office. Then she wonders if she can count on him for bigger things.

When you don’t follow through, YOU begins to wonder if YOU can count on YOU for bigger things. But the truth is, YOU can. It’s possible. Because you can. Because you are that good. Because you are that brilliant. Because you are that spectacular.

As Gandhi once said, “Just Do It.”

Wait. That wasn’t Gandhi.

But still.

Take the action you said you were going to take. Write the blog you said you were going to write. Call your mom if you told her you would. Make the homemade chili you promised you would make. Seriously friend, Just Do It.

Your soul will thank you.

TODAY in the comment section of the blog, I invite you to LIST ALL THE EXCUSES for WHY YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE the actions you said you would take. Just a quick brain dump. Clear ‘em out. Then we can have a little EXCUSE party, celebrate and THEN JUST DO IT!

I love you and so does your SOUL!
