:: Monday Mantra :: Just Do It
Over a year has passed since I have posted on my blog! It has been a big project that has been intimidating, as well as exciting. Many times I considered giving up. I made so many excuses in my head on why I shouldn't write. The funny thing is that it took more energy creating reasons why I should not write than the energy it is taking me now to actually sit here and get it done. Life tends to work in similar patterns. The hardest part about any daunting task is usually just gaining the courage to begin.
:: JUST DO IT ::
Today's Monday Mantra is "Just do It." Some of the best advice I've ever received is to wake up and cross off the hardest thing on your to do list first thing in the morning. If you are a procrastinator (like me) this can seem impossible, but I promise you can. I am a firm believer that the universe doesn't deal us any obstacle we are not meant to overcome. It is better to take care of arduous tasks sooner rather than later. The quicker you can get something done means that you experience less anxiety in the long run. I encourage you to start off your week by accomplishing a project you have been putting off. It can be as simple as finally making it to a yoga class after a while of not practicing. It can be as burdensome as handling an appointment at the DMV. Whatever you choose I am confident that you will be able to achieve whatever goal you set your mind to. The first step is believing you can. The second step is to quit telling yourself you can't and just do it!
