It's Never Too Late To Start Afresh
As I finally get into bed 3 hours later than planned, I have the best intentions for the next day.
I'm going to wake up early! Probably do some meditation before a little light yoga (surely it doesn't matter if you've never done it before? It's probably easy to rest your whole body upside down on your elbows). Then I'll eat a nutritious breakfast, before starting plans on a little start up business with an idea I had while I was watching the sun rise.
Ok, it's a plan.
Then the morning comes around and I end up hitting snooze 12 times, have to peel myself out of bed feeling groggy as hell, and then sit on the sofa in my pj's scrolling through Instagram looking at other people achieving the things I set out to do. All whilst I promise myself, "Tomorrow! Tomorrow is the day".
Why, oh why, do I do this?
When I (frequently) start the day off on the wrong foot, I make my excuses, blame everything else but myself, and write the day off as a failure. Which does wonders for my Netflix viewing, but little in terms of personal and professional growth. But, as of tomorrow, NO MORE.
I kid. Today. Today is the day.
I'm a perfectionist so I won't start anything until I know I can do it to the very best of my ability. Which means that things rarely get done. I've been desperate to turn my hand at vlogging, but as I have no idea how to edit, live in a flat with ugly furniture (hello, it's all about the aesthetic!), and am, as my boyfriend puts it, "awkward and weirdly not myself" in front of the camera, I can't see it happening any time soon.
But we've all got to start somewhere, right? Sure, the internet is a cruel place full of judgement and trolling (why do I want to do this again), but the rewards, both personally and professionally, of getting myself out there far outweigh the risk of being called a boring wannabe.
Alongside this goal, I have a million others which are waiting to be fulfilled. Read one book a week, continue my studies to become a psychotherapist, blog every day, exercise every day, learn more about photography, learn more Italian (and not just the swear words). The list goes on!
So now there is no more tomorrow.
I mean, there is. Hopefully. Unless I continue my bad habit of blaring T Swizzle from my headphones whilst walking out into the road without looking. But you know what I mean.
It's never too late to start afresh and I've set myself the challenge to accomplish something towards my goals every single day.
No excuses. No tomorrows.
