Whatever IT may be.
Maybe it’s quitting your 9-5 and beginning a start-up.
Maybe it’s spending more time at home with your kids.
Maybe it’s asking out that cute girl who stops by the coffee shop each morning.
Maybe it’s losing 80 pounds.
Maybe it’s telling him/her, “I love you.”
Maybe it’s selling your creations on your own web store.
Maybe it’s going on a national tour.
Maybe it’s choosing to stop listening to the judgements you think other people have of you.
Maybe it’s being intentional about making new friends.
Maybe it’s acknowledging you want more out of life.
Maybe it’s believing in yourself.
Whatever IT is, yes, you can do IT.
You have permission.
You have the ability, the talent.
You have the wit, the kindness, and the passion.
IT is something you are more than capable of.
You know that, deep in your soul, because it gnaws at you. It will continue to gnaw at you until you pay IT some attention. Until you give IT a chance to succeed.
You do not need to be afraid of IT.
IT will make you happier, your life fuller and richer.
IT will open the doors to dreams you only wished you could achieve.
Love IT. Nurture IT. It’s the place inside of you that beats and feels and dreams and believes that is the source of IT. So please, show IT a little respect. IT will care for you, as long as you do likewise.
Give IT a chance.
You will feel IT in your gut: the excitement, the tension, the anticipation, the pride.
Because you can.
You can do IT.
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
