There are so many things that we say throughout our lives, “Oh, I’d love to do that…” and eye someone with envy when they’ve given themselves the permission to do something out of the box.
I think women are particularly hard on themselves for these sort of things. When I think of something I want to do, it has to make it past my list of priorities: husband and kids, writing, work, friends, and more.
I’d love to do that…but I’ll just be bringing the kids back from gymnastics and the timing is really tight.
I’d love to do that…but work just started to pick up.
I’d love to do that…but that’s like two months straight that I’ll need to find some backup to watch the kids.
Recently, a friend passed away from cancer and everything around me has seemed like a missed opportunity. My heart has been broken since her passing. She used to say every day counts.
We don’t get a second chance at our lives.
So this is a note to ask you what you’ve been wanting to do lately. And I give you permission to do it for yourself!
On Monday, I start ukulele lessons…get ready world!
