Begin at the Beginning

Thursday, November 18, 2010

What is so difficult about beginnings? Well, for one, it's scary to meet new people, it's hard to know if I'll keep it up and finally, beginnings may be easier for some than others. For me, beginnings are easy, but as I move along, I get bored or disenchanted or discouraged. This makes me think of all the things I begin and never finish. Like that beautiful handmade Swedish rug I started in the 70's. I never finished it even though I kept it for more than 20 years. There was a part of me that probably was a little afraid of completing the project because then it would be judged by myself and others. This time I want to break through the limits and judgements I place on myself so I can become stronger. When you are strong you probably don't judge yourself as harshly. emoticon

    Keep it simple. The way I've been able to stick with it is just make 1 goal to start for the first week and stick to it. If I take on too much, I return to that one goal. When the journey seems too daunting, just focus on today ... what can you do to make today successful? SP is a great place for support, information, and encouragement.

    We all have to start somewhere and the beginning is a great place to start any journey.

    Remember each journey starts with one step, and you have made that first step.

    Here's wishing your every success.
