So eager am I to be starting out on this new journey, I haven’t even finished building my website yet. Mostly because I am very much an amateur when it comes to web design and I am hoping to rope my computer whiz son into helping me with it next time I see him…
It’s been a long time coming for me to actually take action and start to build myself a life that I want. Many years of wanting to change, coupled with as many years of complaining that it was impossible to change, and feeling like I was a victim of life because I believed I had to work in a job I hated… Many years of that mindset…. Until one day I realised that I had about zero chance of doing anything different if I didn’t actually start to do anything different.
I thought I could think myself out of the hole I was in and into a new, more fruitful place that would align with my values. Instead though, I just thought myself into a big hole of depression and became very stuck and couldn’t get out of it. I continued to think, why can’t I change? I’m so miserable. I don’t like it. I’m a good person, why am I being punished with this inability to change my life? And around and around I went in circles.
One may think up a great idea, but without any action it remains nothing more than a thought.
I have finally decided to do something about my over thinking. I like words so I have set a goal to become a writer. My first job as a writer is to write blogs about what I am doing to shift from mere survival to thrival. I wasn’t sure, but yes thrival is actually a word, I looked it up…..
thrival. n.—Gloss: doing well in a place, at an occupation, or at an undertaking; the act of thriving.
So, this is it. I’ve started!…
