just do it.

So yesterday I was out walking around one of my favorite lakes and thinking about how many times we let other people persuade what we do with our own lives. We ask for so many opinions that we don’t even end up doing what we originally wanted to do in the first place because somebody said “ that’s weird” or “why would you do that?”


I always remember how much I wanted to start a blog, but I was nervous of what people would think of it, of me. What if my ideas and topics are stupid? What if my grammar and punctuation aren’t correct? What if no one ever reads it? And then something inside me told me to Just Do It. What do you have to lose? Nothing at all. Coincidentally, my Facebook “on this day” told me that I wrote my very first blog post 7 years ago on this day. I have not had the same blog for the past 7 years and I have taken some time off for various reasons over the years. I just thought that was funny how I was thinking about it yesterday and then it informed me of that today. {fun fact: I graduated high school 7 years ago. yikes!}


·         So if you are wanting to start a blog but worried about what others will think of you or if they will judge you…Just Do It. You write that blog girlfriend! It doesn’t matter if you have 2 followers or 2,000 followers – you will impact someone in some way.

·         If you want to lay in the sun all day and postpone that load of laundry that needs done - Just Do It. You have a couple hours after the sun goes does to wash those clothes and dishes, right?!

·         If you want those Sketchers instead of Nike’s because they have memory foam on the inside & are much more comfortable – Just Do It. I wear my Sketchers loud and proud! My siblings think they are ugly and make fun of me, but I don’t care ;). I would rather pay $30 instead of $130 because the only difference is the S or N on the side of the shoe.

·         If you are contemplating a Grande or Venti at Starbucks…get a Venti! Go big or go home honey! – Just Do It. For heaven sakes, will 4oz. really make a difference? ;) {just walk an extra mile or two that day}.

·         If you wanna travel to every corner of the country {or around the world}, but worried about how much it will cost – Just Do It. You can find cheap flights. Pack light. Spend the night with people you know. You will never regret it and you will see so many incredible things that you’ll want to travel more.

·         If Bachelor/Bachelorette is your guilty pleasure…do not be ashamed! You spend your Monday nights watching overly dramatic guys love roses more than you ever thought possible and so much fancy food go to waste because I’ve never seen any of them take a bite on their dates. Just Do It – watch B&B.

·         If you only want to work 20 hours a week instead of 40 and spend more of your time doing things you love then – Just Do It. Don’t spend your life doing something you don’t love. Always enjoy what you are doing cause life is quick and you don’t want to waste it!

·         If you want to wear a certain outfit or hairstyle but someone said it was ugly – Just Do It. You wear that outfit or hairstyle! If you are comfortable in it and think it looks cute…then that’s all that matters.!

All in all – do what YOU want to do.! Sometimes it is good to listen to others because of their advice and you could learn from them. But as far as making THEE decision about something – do it yourself.! Take chances and be crazy – because life is short and you should do what you love.! Do what you like & like what you do.
