Getting started is the hardest part of anything.
If you struggle with getting started, this post is dedicated to you. If you are a creative soul with billions of ideas, and you get excited to have a new idea, but then find yourself suddenly discouraged at the thought of executing those ideas: you are not alone.
I, too, struggle with getting started. I’ve struggled with it since childhood. I started writing poetry when I was seven years old. I have no good excuse as to why I haven’t yet written and published a book yet, other than the simple truth that I get stuck in my head. The ideas keep playing on loop. The possibilities often remain possibilities.
I can empathize with the thought of pouring my heart into a work of art, and then breaking my own heart as I imagine it going unopened or unread. Every artist knows this internal struggle. I know you do, too.
Tonight, this will change; for you and for me.
Let’s jump together. Let’s try together.
I’d like to ask you to get started on whatever it is that you want to do. Forget that you don’t know all the technicalities yet, set aside the need to retain more, and start to do more.
The world already has enough experts. There is only one you.
Give yourself permission to begin. You are beautiful. You are talented. You deserve to end the war within yourself. You are worthy of the purpose you seek. You can create whatever it is that you want.
Maybe you’re a helper who longs to help. Perhaps you’re a painter, a poet, a musician, a mother whose dreams were put on hold, a hardworking father worn out by the daily grind.
This is your permission, friend. Go after what your soul is hungry for. I shoulder the highs and lows with you. I’m more than happy to do so.
What are you going to do now?

There’s nothing we can’t do together.
Thank you for being here with me.
