Quit Talking and Begin Doing

Last year I think I made a lot of decisions that changed my life.
Big decisions.
Some were easy, and some were big, hard decisions.

The big decisions however do not at all outweigh the smaller ones.
Smaller, easier decisions can be just as life changing.
They might be really obvious changes that make you wonder why on earth you hadn't done it before.

Making the decision to separate with my ex husband was massive, and it played on mind mind for a long time for months before it happened.
Once it was done it wasn't easy and there were big challenges to face but ultimately it taught me a lot, made me stronger and changed my outlook on life in a big way.

"Quit talking and begin doing"

It was the moment I realised that we spend so much time being "all talk" and need to put into action more of our ideas, plans and desires.
Life is too short for "regrets" and if the decision you have to make is something as big as ending a marriage then you have to do it, as long as you are sure that your life will be improved.

Since then I have stuck to my word. If I want to do something, and the opportunity arises, then  I say yes  if the opportunity doesn't arise then I see if there is anything I can do to bring that opportunity into my life.

There has to be questions you ask yourself when making these decisions:

"Who will it affect?"
"What's the worst that can happen?"
"Is it worth it?"
"Can it wait?"
"How much do you want it?"

There are decisions I've made that turned out to be wrong. I don't want to say I regret them because I don't really believe in regrets anymore. But there have been a couple of decisions that lead to hurt and also resulted in me questioning how people (men) see me.

But then there are other decisions that made me the person I am today.
They brought me new hobbies and interests I never thought would be possible for me. And they have brought me closer to my brother, and those choices, those decisions, were the best of my life.
Once upon a time they wouldn't have been, but for me right now, they 100% were.

I fully encourage taking risks, sticking to your word and taking life by the balls and going for it.

We only have one life.
Quit talking.
Begin doing.
