Are you comfy-cozy, wrapped in a soft, warm blanket with fluffy slippers on your feet? Then you are not growing! You are not developing what’s inside you!
Your best, most wondrous gifts and talents are concealed inside of you.
If you’re comfy-cozy then you are not reaching inside yourself. You aren’t “kicking your tires”; you aren’t seeing what you have under the hood; you aren’t taking yourself out for a spin to see what you can do!
Your homework today is to see what you got. Shake off that cozy blanket, kick off those comfy slippers. Put on your sturdy exploring boots, grab your binoculars and magnifying glass to help you see what you might have missed, take your butterfly net for capturing ideas and tidbits of interesting stuff, have your journal handy for jotting down notes, ideas, and inspirations, and top it off with your party hat–because this is going to be FUN!!!–and let’s get going!
Take the next step!
You can do it!
Break the steps into small pieces and little parts break those into tiny bits. Then do the tiny bits!
You can do it, I am positive that you can!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
