Taking The First Step

To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily.  To not dare is to lose oneself.  ~Soren Kierkegaard
Many times we find ourselves dreaming of the future, creating the picture-perfect scenes in our head
and telling ourselves we will get there. Often times we forget that the first step to attaining those dreams is waking up from the dream!
I love to dream and daydream...it's simply a whole new amazing world I sometimes can take absolute control of. Some are fantasies and others are where I want to be and what I want to be. I realise that I spend a lot of time in my head and I will never accomplish anything if I don't rise up and take the first step.
It is oh so important

I write this post because I am so proud of myself for accomplishing, although seemingly small, something I really wanted and put my heart to. Yes, my 3+ years old laptop gave up the ghost after countless efforts to save it. I spent hours, I spent money and I lost all of it. I got my new laptop by working for it. I knew what I wanted and decided not to settle for less
I feel like it opened up something in me: If I go for what I want without stopping, I WILL achieve it. It was not about the money, it was about doing something about my situation, especially at a rough period, without burdening anyone about it.

So it's time to start achieving greater things, even from this laptop. And yes I've had so many ideas popping through my mind and I smile, knowing that despite my fears of failure the first thing I must do is get up and Take The First Step...
