Penguin Ponderings – The Universe


I’ve been receiving Notes From The Universe for close to 2 years now and while they are always enjoyable, some just hit it out of the park.  This was one of them. If you’re not familiar with NFTU click that link above and check it out. In brief…you will receive a note/thought each morning in email that will just help inspire a new positive thought. The creator is Mike Dooley. This started out as a small thing where he was sending out 38 emails a week. Now it’s over 700 hundred thousand. Incredible right?

This note struck a chord in me because I’ve been sitting on the fence with a book idea for ages. In truth, I’m scared to start. I fear it will be crap and that I’ll fail. I love to read and read often, but when you imagine taking a thought and turning it into 300 pages of written story…it’s overwhelming and it makes my tummy hurt. BUT I don’t think there are many things I’ve wanted more.

Starting small is so easy if we allow ourselves to truly start small. The pressure to have it all figured out before starting something new is why we seldom do.

So this note came at the right time for me. AND I started. I’ve decided to be a little realistic with myself and a lot kind to myself. I’m not going to look at it as 300 pages…give or take…I’m going to tell my story…one page at a time and see where I end up.

How about you….what can you start (small) today?

Happy Hump Day!

  1. Don’t let yourself get bogged down with a detail you can always go back to. Have friends who will be willing to read it at certain points and give you honest feedback. I’m sure by the time you’re done it will shine.

    1. Thank you David! I’m just taking some time out of each day to write. I’m gonna get all the way through it once before editing. I have a bad habit of editing and re-editing the same few pages over and over and never moving forward!


  2. Yippee!! Go for it, Nikki 💓 I see you having a lot of fun, and really just being gentle with you. Know that I am your Light cheerleader.

    What have I put off? Getting going with my coaching program so I can step into forgiveness work more deeply. My intention today is to take one step in this direction (if it serves the greatest good)

    Blessings Nikki 😊😊🌼

  3. Yay, good for you Nikki! You’re right, sometimes it’s that first teeny step that’s the hardest. Today I started a magazine article that was weighing on my mind. I set my intention that I was going to write it and then I just went for it. Good luck with the book, how exciting! 😊
