Lessons Learned #14 – Go Ahead & Begin

This post is part of a series that began here. By sharing my “lessons learned” I hope to illustrate the power of this daily practice of gentle self-observation. Please follow along and share your own.

The anniversary of this blog almost snuck by me unnoticed, but I’m glad I thought to look up when I actually started this thing.

One year later, I can say with confidence that I’ve learned it really is better to just begin whatever it is you want to do without waiting for all the signs to indicate the perfectly safe moment.

Here’s how it all began.


The first small, green shoots of the flower bulbs I planted last fall are beginning to break through the soil. “No! Stop! Wait!” I want to tell them, “It’s too soon! There might be another frost!”

But they know what they are doing. They know it’s time.

Inspired by their confident intuition, I too begin.
