Thursday’s Thought

lara casey quoteThis is a quote that I shared with you when I did my book review on “Make It Happen” by Lara Casey. I’m sharing the quote again because I think it’s so powerful and has an important message. As I’m sitting here reflecting on my summer and how I did on my July goals, it gets me thinking about this topic: life and regrets. I know life gets hectic and things get pushed aside, especially when they involve doing things for ourselves. This can be something big like making a life change; maybe because fear holds you back, or something as simple as doing something small for yourself.

I know I’ve shared this before, but I’m a perfectionist (it’s the Virgo in me!). Erik jokes my life motto is “what if…”. I often don’t takes risks because I don’t want to fail and do things that I know I’m good at. I’m really trying to make a conscious effort to not live my life like this anymore, and challenge myself to step outside of my comfort zone. I know I’ll never be completely spontaneous, because that’s not who I am, but I’m going to push myself to take “calculated risks”. 🙂

This year has already been a huge year for me to grow as a person. I’m a people-pleaser and have a hard time saying no, and tend to overcommit (then regret it). I’m getting better at saying “no” and standing up for myself. I have also learned to take time for myself that I deserve. For me personally, that’s going to workout everyday (for my health and to clear my head).


What are the things you’ve always wanted to do that you haven’t yet??

What are you going to do to make that happen?
