it’s all up to you

I have been struggling recently with getting motivated to do stuff. I have wonderful aspirations all the time, but they only get set in motion some of the time, because I’m lazy and I leave things to the last minute.

However, I’m working on changing that, and I’m also working on being ok with that. It’s a bit oxymoronic (maybe just take out the oxy part of that word… : ) But, as Dan Parsons so eloquently puts it, it’s all up to you, firestarter. And I can start fires, I can do anything if I put my mind to it. It’s all up to me.

To journal. To contemplate. To cook. To garden. To be a better me, to write poems and make them live in other people’s lives, to create habits and to break habits, to do something. Anything.

    Those are all wonderful things! I hope you do all that and more :)

  2. Being OK with that – an important part of the journey, and one I’m quick to forget. I feel like I’m still in training mode, waiting for stuff to happen – but that’s the point, isn’t it? All the little things I do, the steps I take, are training me for something bigger. And what I’ve got in the meantime is life.

    Some inspiring reflections there, thanks for sharing!
