Just Getting Started
“Do not wait; the time will never be just right. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”
The old Apollo rockets used the vast majority of their fuel just getting off the launchpad.
In the same way, it can feel exhausting to get started making changes in our lives:
-that new exercise regimen
-beginning a new career
-telling your spouse how you really feel
-taking classes toward a new certification or degree
-changing how you provide structure and discipline for your kids
All of these can take more energy and effort than we think we’ve got, and that can discourage us from even thinking about beginning. But if we want to reach new heights, we’ve got to get off the ground (or couch, comfort zone).
We can do this.
Peace begins with pause,
