Sometimes, I get overwhelmed by the endings.
So I never begin.
It’s true. Fear paralyzes me. Doubts overcome me. I stall when I should start.
Some tasks are so big they seem impossible.
Whether it’s the mountain of laundry that needs conquering or the sink full of dishes that need washing or the hundreds of pairs of earrings that need tagging or the projects that need funding or the diapers that need changing or the house that needs painting….
Whoa. I’d bet you need to breathe after just reading that so you probably imagine how I feel thinking it.
Take a moment. Breathe with me.
Because we don’t have to finish today. All we have to do is begin.
Take a step. Make a start. Do something little that will affect something big.
One load of laundry at a time. One day at a time. One breath at a time.
Take one step, and you just might find that the victory isn’t in the ending but in the beginning.
This is a special Five Minute Friday…the last that Lisa-Jo will host! But, she’s passed that baton to a friend so next week will be a new beginning. Maybe you’d like to join us on a new adventure? We’d be thrilled if you did!
