Funny Thing Life


“You should write more you’re really good at it” were the words recently said to me. “Thank you” I replied “It’s what I have always done”. Never in school, not for grades and anyone who knows me my spelling and grammar are not my forte but as time goes on you realise that writing is not about words on a page it’s the voice, it’s the message in your heart. The more you write the better your spelling and grammar gets….hopefully.

Someone recently said to me who “You know I feel like it’s not me writing, am I trying too hard.” If you get swept away when you write then it’s quite the opposite, you’ve reached your heart because you have move past the feeling of what should write, where should I start, how should I start…..just start. It begins with one action then life kicks in but only you can take that one action. Allow yourself to be swept away by the action that’s in your heart, most people won’t know that feeling because their head stops them from going there. Whether it is writing or whatever it is you do.

Trouble is most people in life don’t take that one action….

New Year Resolutions are a crock, they are made by the people who:

  • Want to lose weight
  • Get a new job
  • Go on a holiday
  • Buy a house
  • Buy a dog
  • Give up smoking

Truth is most people aren’t prepared to do what is necessary to make those things happen. Nothing changes if nothing changes. You can talk yourself out it as much as you like, you can dream as much as you like, you can blame ill timing, look for the smallest thing to pick apart but all you’re doing is procrastinating. Why? Because you are scared…you are in your comfort zone where it’s nice cosy, warm and you don’t have to think too much because you can do it with your eyes closed. It’s safe, it’s easy and it’s familiar and you’re taking the easy route.

Are you really that person?

How about change a resolution to a MUST DO and take one action….just one action because you’re killing me. Life is short, so short please don’t waste on warm and cosy. Live a little. We work so much better when we’re outside our comfort zone and life is much more exciting….your more exciting.

Anyone can do anything if you’re prepared to take that one little step….just one little step. You’re sleep walking, wake up and take a step that step turns into a jog and that jog turns into a run and before you know it you’re a sprinter. But a sprinter doesn’t just wake up a sprinter. He woke up and decided “Today I am going to take one step.”

Are you going to take a step? What step are you going to take?  Tell me.
