Just Do It...

It always seems impossible
until it is done.

Today's blog is the 50th since the birth of OldBoldandBeautiful.Life. WOW! Have to say I'm impressed and feel great about that. Each blog has been a challenge and a joy to write.

OldBoldandBeautiful.Life has been the vehicle that has gotten me to sit down and write with the goal of posting a blog each Tuesday and Friday. Often I don't know what I'm going to write but something always comes. What is most remarkable and pleases me is that I now thoroughly trust the process.

In the past each time I sat down to write something I heard the voice say “I can't do this.” Or as I got into the throes of writing I'd hear: “this stinks.”

That little voice has simmered in that the trust I have for the process takes precedence over any of those voices of self-doubt, self-criticism, self-loathing... Once again it appears the lesson is in the doing.  Just doing what we set out to do – the voices will be heard until they are not.

Not an easy journey...but a definite lesson to behold when the next struggle comes along and the voices of self-doubt, self-criticism, self-loathing arise. Let them be – and simply do the doing of what needs or wants to be done. Can't remember the name of the book about setting goals and accomplishing them but I do remember a little mantra in that book: Do It Right; Do It Wrong – But Just Do It!

Happy Doing...
