Hey savvy gals!
Are you ready to jump into today’s read? (Pun intended) I don’t know about you, but I am so, let’s get started!
Humans are creatures of habit, and our habit is waiting. Waiting for the timing to be just right – perfect, waiting until we know exactly what we want and until we have everything to go after it. But once we reach for it, it’s always just out of our grasp. We tend to let fear bud in and say “hey, maybe you’re not ready yet”. Sound familiar? Probably.
But sister, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I spent years of my life being afraid of going after my dreams, because everything fear whispered at me was you are not going to succeed. And I believed it. I gave up on chasing my dreams, which means I also gave up on growing and evolving. Instead of fighting my fears, I waited. I waited until I was older, I waited until I had the money, I waited until I knew more and had better resources. But it wasn’t getting me anywhere.
I was just stuck, waiting.
Waiting on something that wasn’t coming, because I wasn’t taking action. I was sitting around on my bum, expecting something magical to happen…perfect timing. (In case you haven’t figured it out yet, perfect timing isn’t a thing, but we’ll get into that later.)
I got tired of seeing zero results – from zero work. So I made a decision. I put my foot down and said let’s do this, let’s try it. Because you will never know if something will work out till you try it, you may even fall in love with it along the way. That’s exactly how I found my passion for blogging, just trying it out!
Love Her Savvy is a small blog, yes, but I’m completely okay with that! You know why? Because I have seen it grow ever sense I started putting work into it. Progress is progress no matter how small, and that is the mindset you need to succeed.
Listen up sis,
You are allowed to be both a work in progress and help others grow at the same time. Refuse to wait until you believe you’re perfect or someone else has deemed you worthy of impacting others. You should be un-apologetically accepting a life of massive growth and improvement. You don’t have to be wise to make an impact on the world. Just share what you’re learning, as you’re learning it. That’s more than enough.
What I’m trying to say is there is no perfect timing for anything, if you want something go get it, sis. Jump in, run after your dreams because no one can catch them but you. Take action. It’s just like the iPhone, okay, start with you’re 1.0 version and build up from there. You have to start small, so why not start now? Sis, you can make those dreams come true.
There is nothing scarier than being stuck in the middle of a story you don’t belong in anymore. This overwhelming feeling fills you because you’re ready and you just want to go go go. So go, jump out on a limb, no one can give you the chance to start over but you. You may be terrified to your very core, but make sure you do it anyway. Because I promise you, that moment of courage will change your life, it will open doors. Whether it’s the door you want or another door that’s meant for you, it will push you forward into something more than what was before.
Never allow waiting to become a habit. Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening now. It is not selfish to put yourself first. It’s mandatory. You can’t pour out love and grace from an empty pitcher.
Building your dreams into plans may seem completely impossible. But if you put in the work, time and effort, I promise you it’s possible.
Sometime’s, we just have to jump.
Hey gal, I hope this message gave you a little bump on the rump to get ya going! If you don’t mind, leave me a comment and tell me the dream you hope to turn into a plan and/or your own tips on achieving your goals. I’d love to hear from you!
