Now is a good time to begin

It’s easy for me to put things off, especially things that I suspect may be challenging. Not starting may be a way to avoid the risk of failing at something. But not starting means we risk missing the feeling we get when we succeed at something. Today is as good a day as any to set a small goal that is achievable and take the first baby step that will begin the journey of reaching the goal. I am really poor at drinking those 8 glasses of water my body needs every day. Today I’m setting the task of drinking some water each time I eat. I’m not even aiming for 8 glasses. I’m just aiming to drink water and see where it takes me each day.

Beginning leads us forward. Putting things off can leave us standing still and ‘stuck’.

Try beginning really really small with what you know you can do. Today is a good day to begin.
