Can’t always be All Talk -No Action.
Sunday, February 16, 2020
At times I find I talk the big talk yet never do the action part. I’ve noted I talk about certain ideas I have of things I want to do yet never commit or set a day or time. Have to plan I say. (One of many excuses)
For years I’ve been talking about getting a tattoo yet could never decide what I wanted. Forever I dreamed and talked the big talk then always changed my mind of what I wanted or if did decide I would hesitate with location of it so never follow through.
Since fighting thyroid cancer I decided on my location for my future tattoo and dreamed of it often and had a whole file full of ideas on Pinterest yet still nothing happened...until today my daughter-in-law gave me the right level of pressure and encouragement I needed to go for it.
She took all my ideas and took what I liked of each to make a design then pressed me to do today.
AND I did it AT LAST!!
Butterfly for the thyroid gland, cancer ribbon hidden in it and the thyroid colours of teal, purple and pink. On my right inner forearm (so can be conversation piece with others -way to encourage others to advocate for themselves and stay safe and healthy) yet not always visible for work and/or wedding pics etc.
Now that I’ve done this long term idea it makes me want to apply this to other tasks that I’ve been dreaming about, planning forever yet never following through.
Running/jogging is next on my list!!!
I always told myself I needed to loose more weight before I start again but after today I think I need to grasp my future now instead of always talking & planning and never following through.
