Before I start today’s post I want to let you know that I may not be posting every day. My father passed away late last night. I’ll resume the daily schedule as soon as I am able. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
“Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
Your homework today is to find a quiet space and sit with this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt for several minutes. When you feel ready, turn your thoughts to the quest you’re on to achieve your dreams. What parts of the quest or what task are you avoiding or procrastinating over because you’re afraid of what other people will think?
Here’s a news flash: the majority of people aren’t really thinking about you—aren’t really paying attention. While they may give you a passing thought or two, they aren’t spending hours and hours dissecting everything you’re doing or not doing. They have too much on their own plates that they’re worrying about and dealing with.
Additional news flash: those very few who may be trash-talking you, they will say bad things about you and make fun of you if you are taking action and they’ll say bad things about you and ridicule you if you aren’t taking action—if you’re stuck.
So, as Eleanor Roosevelt suggests in her quote, you may as well get busy and take the next step.
You can do it, I know you can!
I’m so proud of you!
