Stay Afraid. But Do It Anyway…

Stay Afraid. But do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.” – Carrie Fisher

I’ve been reflecting on the things throughout the year (2017) that I wasn’t able to get to, or didn’t do.  And I really feel that this quote, out of all Carrie’s brilliant quotes, is speaking to me at the beginning of 2018 for a reason. I’m thinking of it as Carrie telling me that I need to just to get off my ‘rear’ and do the things that I keep planning but keep putting off because it’s “not the perfect time” or “I don’t have this/that yet” – I just need to stop procrastinating or dwelling on the past and do it, whatever ‘it’ is! Though I’m sure she would add some ‘colorful’ words of encouragement in as well. 🙂

So…. with Ms. Fisher’s advice going off rather loudly in the back of my mind, I decided to take the portrait I did of her as General Organa and turn it into my computer’s wallpaper to remind me to keep going and to not get bogged down by whatever limitations or excuses I tell myself as to why I can’t do something. Soo… that’s my resolution for 2018 – to not worry about the confidence aspect and just focus on the action and the rest will follow.

Also, if there are other Carrie fans out there who would like to make 2018 your year for action and feel like you might need a little reminder too…. I am sharing this wallpaper for all to use. Click Here or the Image below to open in new window for download.

Thanks so much, and I wish you all a Happy and ‘Action’ filled 2018! Let’s all make our Princess and General proud! <3

Until next time…
