Time

Time is such a funny thing to me.  On one hand, it feels like there is an infinite amount of time.  On the other hand, it feels like I never have enough. The idea that I don’t have enough time has held me back from pursing some of my dreams and goals, because I always have thought I don’t have time to do it.  Life always gets in the way.

But I of course have enough time, I just let the fear of failing hold me back.  The fear that I wasn’t good enough and I didn’t have what it takes. But, time is what I make of it, how I decide to use it.  If I manage it right, I can always find time to do the things I love.

One of the amazing things/ideas that Seth talked about that epic weekend was the idea that the people that have made a ruckus in the world weren’t necessarily the most talented, or the smartest, but they succeeded because of the fact that they SHOWED UP.  Everyday they showed up and did the things that they said they were going to do. When I left The Purple Crayon that fateful Sunday, I promised myself and my fellow Ruckusmakers that I would start my own blog and I would write every day (not always on the blog, but that I would write things down that meant something to me).  I have worked to find the time everyday to write, to state my point of view and to start to make my own ruckus.  A small ruckus, but a ruckus nonetheless.

Don’t ever forget that there is always the time to pursue the things you love and never let the fear that you are not good enough hold you back.

    Love this, Lindsay! It’s like we have to remind ourselves of these bits of Sethisms every day to avoid the lizard brain and just SHOW UP. Way to follow through… I look forward to hearing more!!
