(In case anyone else needs a little encouragement today.)
You can do it.
Whatever — it — is.
So go ahead. Light a candle. Take a deep breath. Make space. Clear your calendar. Find an opportunity.
And do it.
Take the photograph. Hike the mountain. Paint that wall. Or a watercolor. Swim in a cool, clear lake. Chase the sunset. Follow a thunderstorm.
Ask for help. Seek community. A kindred spirit. Reach out.
Press your luck. Find your fortune. Act on the dream. Lose your way. Find it again. Follow your instincts. Take a chance. Roll the dice. Trust.
You can do it.
Which of your many thoughts just won’t go away? What keeps you awake in the middle of the night? Who’s on your mind? Where do you need to be? Feed the craving. Satisfy your thirst. Give yourself a little nudge. Get started. Be brave. Hold your nose. And jump.
Ready? Set? Go!
Write the chapter. Book the trip. Find that friend you’ve been thinking about all these years. Lose the weight. Schedule the appointment. Plant a meadow. Follow a new path.
Why wait ‘til tomorrow? Forget the forecast. Go anyway. Simplify. Streamline. Speak your truth. Believe.
Cheer yourself on. Pat your own back. Keep your own promises.

Yes, yes, and yes.
I’m the master of excuses, the reasons why not and can’t.
I’ll be remembering this post as I move ahead …
And I thank you, friend. Gosh, I’m so glad you’re back!
I just needed to give myself a little pep talk this morning. So glad you find it useful as well. You can do it! I know you can! Thank you for your kindness!
I might need to read this every day. Thanks for sharing your personal pep talk because it’s a good way to start my week. I’m glad I landed on your blog.
Pep talks are good from time to time, aren’t they? It feels good to remind myself … you’re capable! Thanks very much for stopping by!
