"Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again."--Winnie-the-Pooh (A.A.Milne)
Where to begin? That is always the daunting task when starting a new endeavor. Even if you know exactly what you want to accomplish and how to do it, the starting, that first step out into the unknown is always one of ...well, exciting terror. Reasons crop up of why it can't happen now. "I'll get to it later"--that elusive later.
For me, I knew for the past few years I wanted to start a blog. I knew I wanted it to be about photography. It's my passion and I wanted to share it with others. But that was as far as I ever got. I always had an excuse of why I couldn't start it. "My pictures are not good enough, when I get a little better and master my skills I'll start"; "I don't know what to say, I'll start when I think of what I want "my message" to be"; "I don't have enough time to do this. Now isn't the right time to start".
The problem was every time I conquered a reason, another one would pop up. As the wise ole Pooh Bear said I stopped to think....and that was it.
Thinking is good, but action is also needed to make something real.
There comes a point when you just have to say NOW! Now is the perfect time. It always has been and always will be NOW. As for the nuts and bolts, well sometimes you just figure that out along the way. Because if you never start, you will never be able to truly know what the next step needs to be.
So this is me starting! Missteps and all :) And hopefully, you will come along for the journey. I don't know where it will take us , but I know it will be amazing!
