…isn’t the waiting, Tom Petty, it’s the starting.

That new job.  That tough conversation.  College.  And yes, exercise.

No matter what change you’re making, it’s the very beginning that’s the hardest.  It can be scary, intimidating , wracked with anxiety and doubt, insecurity and apprehension.  And then…..it’s just another part of your life.  You get up every day and rock that job you weren’t sure you’d be good at.  The conversation is behind you and your relationship is stronger.  And just like everything else, that workout is just something you do every day – except now you look forward to it.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that fear is just a feeling – that’s its not the impenetrable wall it tries to tell you it is.   And once you take the first step into it, it magically begins to fade away.  Fear is the enemy and I want you to refuse to bow to it.  Don’t let it win.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and step.  And then, do it again.  🙂
