Motivation Monday: Take the step

{BrainyQuote.com}
This has been said in so many ways over the years but that's because it's true. You will never move forward towards you goals and dreams if you don't take that first step.

My late husband and I always talked about RVing when we retired. When my father passed and we were driving home from the funeral, I looked at all the rigs passing us on the highway. I told him that all we were doing was talking about that dream but we hadn't taken one step towards it. Within six months we bought a used motorhome.

When I first tried my hand at fiction writing in the late 1990's, I read everything I could put my hands on. Books about writing, websites about writing, groups about writing...you get the idea. When I started back in 2012, I almost took that route but I realized that I could spend forever researching about writing and NEVER ACTUALLY WRITE.

Are you just talking about your dreams and goals or are you actually DOING something to get there? Maybe it's time to take a look at your priorities.

  1. Excellent point, Donna! Sometimes that "big" step isn't as hard as one might think. I'm glad you're writing!

I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
