Just Doing It

And by 'it', I don't mean "it"!

Bit of a different post today, but I've had this idea swirling around my head since the first of the month and I still think it will be relevant, so here goes...

January is very much a time - as we all know - of self-renewal, starting afresh and finding the courage to do things that fall by the wayside at other times of the year. Although I did write a post on my resolutions, to better myself and enjoy myself more, I actually found that the latter part of last year was more of a turning point for me than January has been, or will be yet. In the second half of last year, I finally realised why exercise is actually really bloody amazing, the importance of looking after my body and well-being and picked up a couple of new hobbies to boot. I threw myself in at the deep end and am really glad I did so.

As probably most of you who might be reading this do, I read a lot of blogs. And a few thoughts and sentences I keep coming across recently are around wanting to bettering oneself, whether it's getting fit, trying a new hobby, keeping in contact with people... you get the picture. The words I keep reading are more often than not 'I hope to do', 'I want to do' or 'This will help me to do this'. And although these sentiments are noble, I feel like we've all got a case of the procrastinitis, as I'm certainly guilty of it too.

But we're all intelligent, thinking and functioning people and if you really, and I mean really want to do something - just do it.

Lets not allow the lure of procrastination stop us from getting ahead and starting something new, even if it's just about getting into the right head space, acquiring the right equipment or attaining the required knowledge.

I realised last year that in order for things to happen, you need to make them happen and that's what I'll be continuing to do this year.

Just doing it.
