Be Bold, Even When You’re Knees Shake

Sometimes we can be our own worse enemy. When opportunity knocks, we think of fifteen reasons why we shouldn’t open the door, aren’t worthy of opening the door, or can’t open the door. And so the prize goes to the next person down the street.

I posted about this on Edie Melson’s  blog, The Write Conversation, where I talk about Presence by Amy Cuddy.

Let Your Dreams Take New Life

Spring has arrived. The blooms, the neon green baby leaves,

Spring Flowers

and the layer of yellow on the cars declare its arrival.

Now to shake off the cobwebs and dust from our ambitions and restart our pursuit of our goals. It’s easy to let momentum die and leave us by the road. But it is much harder to get back on track.

I challenge you to take now as the time to get back in the race.

Remember those goals or resolutions from January? Or maybe it was a dream we were afraid to accept?

With all the new life springing up around us in nature, now is a great time to rededicate ourselves to those goals we’ve left unfinished.

Earlier, on The Write Conversation, I gave some tips on how to  get re-motivated and maybe reach that goal this time.  (Press here for link.)

Thank you for reading. And please leave a comment if there is something you are motivated to pick back up. I would love to be your cheerleader.

I would love to hear about your special pet. Just leave me a comment.
