Just do it

Spread the love

I have amazing ideas , no really I do. I can say that because I have a very creative mind the problem is I have a very hard time with follow through. I’m not sure if it’s a genetic default or if I’m just extremely scared of failure. I like to go with genetic default.  I start projects that could potentially be a success and then I ever so quietly I leave them in the great unknown. It drives my husband bonkers actually it probably drives everyone bonkers. Actually it’s not just my ideas that I have an issue with follow through there are quite a few things that I do half assed and what a hypocrite I am when I get mad at my kids for only doing half of the dishes or  putting all the garbage under their bed when I tell them to clean their room. I have not been a stellar example of follow through.

We have told our kids from the time they were babies that when they grow up the possibilities are endless , if you want to be an astronaut, assassin , ballerina or a princess you can do it, for some reason though I didn’t take my own advice . I am now , there will be follow through with this blog adventure I am on and I will put my ideas to fruition if not what am I telling my kids? I’m telling them that good ideas or big dreams are unattainable and that’s a crappy parenting move. If we want our kids to reach for the stars and when I say reach for the stars it can go to the extreme of being president one day or being the best barista at a coffee shop . Everyone has dreams and goals no one can decide for them or us what they should be.  Any who, I am doing this for me and my kids I want them to see me start with an idea and bring it to reality. Trust me they have seen me plenty of times give up ( eating healthy , exercising, writing a book …) the list goes on . My new motto is “Just do it” what’s the worst that can happen ?
