Well…here it is! My first blog post. I have known for a while I wanted to blog but knowing, wanting and doing are all different things. I know I should eat healthier and exercise. That doesn’t mean I always choose healthy foods and get off my rear end and move. I want to have enough money when I retire to maintain my current lifestyle and travel. That will not just happen. I must plan and save and take steps to make it happen. You see, in order to make our dreams reality we must take action! We cannot just float thru life and expect things to fall into our laps. We have a part to play in how our lives turn out.
Although I wanted to start a blog, I have procrastinated this first post because I was intimidated by all kinds of things. Who will want to read what I write? I know very little about maintaining a blog website. What if I do it wrong? and on and on…but in the end, my desire (want) to have this blog was bigger than all those intimidating questions in my head. Eventually, you just have to jump in and see what happens. It may not be perfect. It may not be fancy at first. but it is a start…and that first step is what matters right now.
If you are ever going to have the things in life you want – the things that God wants you to have, you have to take the first step. Do it on purpose. Make a decision, set a course and GO FOR IT!
I’m excited to see where this journey takes us. I’ll be posting every Monday to start. My hope is you find encouragement and courage to live the life God planned for you – on purpose.
