Ta-Da!! This is my first official post. And while it is very tempting to hold off until I have the perfect thing to say, I think it is far better to just get started than obsess about whether it will be good enough, wise enough, cover enough, or even make sense. Maybe that is one of the first ideas that make SMART Living 365?
In other words, don’t put off doing something because you are worried about the end-product. I’ve provided a great example about how I can up with a thousand reasons not to make this first post. But every one of them is just a delay-tactic, thinking I could eventually create something so perfect that anyone who ever read it would think that I was #1 brilliant; #2 wise; #3 insanely creative; #a great writer; etc. etc…you get the idea right?
When it comes down to it, sometimes the best course of action is just taking that first step. SMART Living requires that we don’t obsess over every little detail. Instead we enjoy the process and do what we can with what we have. We never let perfectionism stop us in our tracks. We seize the day—live each day as a precious gift—and never let our fears stop us from doing what we dream. Not quite up to that yet—then at least we do the best we can.
In the days ahead I intend to share ideas that I have on a regular basis about what both myself and my husband Thom have done in the past to create what we consider to be a very fulfilled life. But even though I do think I have a great life, I realize that I am a work in progress and really only know a tiny bit about the subject. That’s why I intend to keep learning and sharing any and all tips, information and ideas I come across that will help me continue creating a life that is SMART 365.
So join me on this new journey and together we will create SMART Living 365.
