Start Where You Are

So many people lose hope because they become overwhelmed with where they are at.  We can all admit to feeling that way I’m sure.

This quote by C.S. Lewis is such a great reminder of where I believe we start to get the feeling of being overwhelmed.

For example, responsibilities may be put off or ignored, but they never go away.  All of a sudden the list of things to do is longer than what we feel like we can begin to manage.

You can’t go back and start over, but you can start where you are and begin to scratch some things off of the list. 

That list includes responsibilities, projects, and commitments you may have procrastinated on. 

Today may even be the day that you look at your dreams and say today is the day I will start to pursue that.

Begin to change the ending by winning today. 

Start where you are.

I’m cheering for you.
