You Have To Begin Somewhere

You have to begin somewhereNo matter what it is that you are thinking about doing, you have to begin somewhere, take that first step and begin.  Take that first step. For weeks I had been contemplating the idea of blogging again. I really love to write and talk to people through my writing. When it comes to actually writing, I just get really anxious about the process. I can make lists all day long about what to write about, when to post it, where to share it, and all that jazz.

It should just be logical that the next step is to go ahead and write, correct? Yes! However, I just tend to shut off there. I had plenty of friends who I would write topic lists for about blogging ideas. They were then able to take off running with their blogs and make traction. I still sat here with my list in hand and nothing more than that. You have to take that first step, you have to begin somewhere.

I am not afraid so what is my deal?

I am not one who is afraid of what people will say because most of you I probably will never meet and that is okay., and I don’t mind. It won’t be an everyday occurrence that I will run into someone who read my blog. So what is my issue with taking that next step? Who knows. I just know I need to get over whatever it is and take that first step and begin somewhere.

What is something that you have prepared for over a period of time but failed to follow through on?

Get Your Crap Together

Get Your Crap Together Molly

Man, I need to get my crap together. I know that I have got to get back into a routine to make things happen! It never fails – moms, I know you feel me – that your kids start school and things go well. Then comes Thanksgiving break, things are off for a week, but as soon as you get back, Christmas break hits. Kids home, husband home, everyone is home. No routine as you have to get them all taken care of and fit all your crap into things also. New Year hits, you take a couple weeks to get back into it – Spring break arrives. Crap. Now to really just muster through and get back to routine in about three weeks for school to let out. Crap again. Now to create a whole new routine that caters to kids all the time and work and everything else.

Get it together I tell myself plenty of times.

I honestly am beginning to think that me trying to make everything fit into my schedule is what is creating these issues. God is laughing at me for trying to do it all my way. He is telling me to calm myself, look upward and rely on Him.  I just wish that He could just help me out and maybe put it on my Google calendar, or even pencil it into my Erin Condren planner. It would be great – right?

Too bad, so sad…it doesn’t work like that.

I am going to continue to plan, but I will do it in pencil. I know this will frustrate me a lot, but I know that I can do nothing but say “Yes Lord” and keep moving. Let us not get so uptight about things that we cannot see that there is a divine purpose in it all.

Rest easy friends – I feel you.

Planning for Next Year

Planning for next year has begun in my household. I am actively working on setting goals for my household, my business, and myself. I have things that I want to start putting into a routine with my kids, my husband, my health, my fitness, and my business. I have been so slack on getting things written down so that I could think through the ideas. I find that the more I can think through things and really put actionable items into place, the better I do.

I want to really be more present with my kids and my husband. I want to be intentional about the time that I get to spend with them. That is why this year I am going to do more one-on-one time each of them. I think that relationships thrive so much more when there is devoted time for them.

I want to be able to set a health and fitness goal each quarter and really go for it. I have set many goals this year and they all fell through basically, and I think it is because I failed to plan. I have my first goal set and it is a shorter term goal, which I think should help me. I am pretty excited for this as working towards this goal alone, will help me hit two others along with it.

I want to be able to create a program and sell it successfully. I have already taken the steps of getting a business mentor that will lead me along the path of what works. I will also create a community that allows like-minded people to thrive. I need the push to get things done so that I can really get success in my sights.

I also am ready to help other people not struggle as much as I used to with productivity. I have found that this starts with my morning routine. It may vary from time to time, but for the most part, it is relatively the same. I work through the same basic steps to keep myself on the road to a smooth morning.
