Starting Where You Are

I was just talking to my husband about a new creative endeavor he’s been thinking about for the New Year…

He’s wanting to enter a contest where you build a guitar from scratch. I could tell he was super-excited about it, and I have ZERO doubts that he has the talent and abilities to kick the contest’s ass.

But I don’t think it’s going to happen, to be totally honest πŸ₯Ί

Why? Because there’s a long list of “conditions” he’d have to meet to even get started.

There’s the new workbench and tools. Sourcing the wood. Making the space in his schedule AND our tiny garage.

Soooo, we talked about projects heΒ couldΒ work on that would set him up for success by meeting him where he’s at in life for right now.

And I realized that’s going to be a part of my own theme for the year…STARTING WHERE I AM!

Instead of comparing myself to others and what they’re doing in their lives and businesses, I’m going to take as many small, doable, actionable, inspired actions as I can each day.

I’m going to give myself the gift of DONE. I’m going to be okay with things being as “good as they need to be,” and not fight myself every step of the way.

And I’m starting right here and now with this post. Sure, I could make it longer, and “prettier,” and worry about SEO.

Of course, that would be going against my new intentions of connection and getting shit DONE and out there.

So, here it is, in all of its good-enough, vulnerable, authentic, and raw glory πŸ’β€β™€οΈ

What about YOU? What areas of your life are you putting off living?

And more importantly, where could you meet yourself where you’re at RIGHT NOW?
