About a week ago I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and I came across this video put out by GoalCast. If you don’t follow them in some form…you may want to check them out. Very motivational and uplifting. The video is from the brilliant actor Peter Dinklage. It’s less than 3 minutes long and worth the watch. Take a look…..
I started to feel the lump rise in my throat about 1 minute into the video. By 2 minutes I had tears running down my cheeks. I saved the video and I’ve watched it every day since and the tears keep coming.
It’s like a battle cry for me. It woke something up. It feels so damn personal.
I have had a dream to write a book for years now. I’ve talked about it. Written about it. Thought about it. Started and stopped it. But it’s time for me to stop asking for permission from who knows who…
It’s time for me to stop waiting for the right time.
It’s time for me to prioritize.
It’s time for me to stop being afraid that I simply can’t do it.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. -Samuel Beckett
What does all this mean?
It means I’m not being a very good penguin.
It means it’s time for me to stop playing around and devote more time to writing and less time to blogging.
My blog is my main focus and it takes up most of my ‘free’ time. That will have to change if I ever want to see this dream through.
So for the foreseeable future I’ll be blogging 3 days a week instead 5-6. My schedule for those interested will be M-W-F. I’ll do my best to keep up on your blogs. I love this community and I don’t want to lose my place within it. ❤ I have come to form some beautiful friendships and I’m not abandoning ship…I promise!
It’s just time for me to take my own advice and…..fly.
Thanks for reading~
