stop thinking, start doing.

I've been writing a lot on this blog about my new quest to define myself. For the past few months, I've felt completely bogged down and consumed with questions about how I am, what my message is and how I want to show up in the world.

Through these months, I've spent a lot of time thinking about these things and thinkingandthinkingandthinking.

All that thinking just gets things muddled, and it makes the thing become SO BIG! THIS IS NOW THE BIGGEST THING I'VE EVER HAD TO THINK ABOUT IN MY WHOLE LIFE. IT'S SOOO IMPORTANT! DON'T MESS IT UP!

{Eek! Now it's scary and too big and I can't do anything because I'm so overwhelmed!}

And that's when I started doing something.

I sat down and started writing, even though I wasn't sure what my message was. I started talking to people about coaching even though my website isn't perfect. I started doing and from the doing, my definition emerged.

It's through action that we are able to define ourselves. Thoughts without action are worthless. It's the doing that makes it important.

But the doing is so hard. We put so much pressure on ourselves to know what our message is, to really get clear on definition before moving forward. So much pressure, in fact, that we never get started. We just sit and wait and the world spins and before we know it, other people are doing it. First. And better.

Because anything is better than nothing. Always.

{ you go start something. Do something. Right now...I dare you!}
