Constant Conversations

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Do you ever find yourself sharing the same ideas, goals, and conversations over and over? And, over? My husband, the ever-constant listener and professional feedback-giver, has listened to my rants, rambles, and thoughts for years on end. Likewise, I have also been his sounding board and cheerleader. Finally tiring of our own talk, we declared that this would be THE YEAR in which we implement some of our long-standing hopes and dreams -- whether big, small, personally, professionally, or otherwise. Simply, to turn thought into action. To just do it. By nature, I am completely risk-averse, but I'm ready to leave my comfort zone in the dust and press on. It has to be done.

Do you find yourself in a similar situation? Instead of just talking about wanting certain things to be different, we actually want to make it happen. That saying stuff is easier than the doing, but we're game! What goals do you have for 2013? It's already April, so let's get going and be brave together!

  1. I love this! Such a good reminder to live without fear and to have an intentional life. Navy and I have had this exact conversation about six months ago and it gave us the kick-in-the-pants we needed to accept overseas orders, not just talk about 'one day' doing it! This year has already brought exciting challenges from implementing our dreams and I know it'll get even crazier as we continue! Thank you for sharing your heart and this beautiful reminder! #lovesit

  2. Thanks, Heather! I appreciate you sharing! I admire your sense of adventure and ability to take the plunge! I feel like I've lived vicariously through your Instagram feed -- it is ridiculous in the best way possible. So glad to hear it has been an amazing experience thus far. Only better things will come! Here's to us making our dreams come true -- whether big or small! #justdoit #tallyho
