If you asked me in June if I wanted to sit down and do some goal planning, I would have likely said no. I am so immersed in doing that slowing down mid-year to plan feels strange.
Then December hits and all I can think about is dreaming about what next year could look like and the many things I might want to accomplish.
I recently saw this quote from Vincent Van Gogh and was InspiHERed.
“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint,
then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”
Asking myself “What, if I pursued it, would make my body tingle and my smile widen?”
You may not have had a voice within telling you that you cannot paint yet I know you have heard the whisper that says, “I’ll get to that dream someday” or “I have no time to do that fun thing right now” or even “It’s too late to think about doing that. I’m too old, too poor, too busy…”
And don’t let it stop you either.
