I had another post planned for today, but I just needed this to help me get through the week.
I needed a little reminder of my little word for 2014: Dare. Longing and intention are never enough. You have to act to fight for a bigger life. I’m not taking this quote literally. I just think that many of us long for something more (in big ways and small ways), but I want to stop and ask myself how am I actively working toward that more? What steps am I taking to get there?
When I think about that more that I’m longing for, it makes me realize that sometimes it’s as if I’m waiting to act until I’m a better or more polished version of myself. And that’s just a waste of time. literally — a slow and painful waste of time. I am just enough. I have big dreams, and I work hard, and I am just enough to fight for my dreams.
What are you longing for? What small act can you make today to take one step closer to that life?
This post is dedicated to my dear friend, KQS. You are more than enough. Go get ’em.
