Do it cause you cant not do it!

Shane O’Dazier was being interviewed on XM11 the other day …yes this cali girl is a really a county girl at heart. I heart county music. I love the twang, I love the steal guitar, I love the stories within the songs and I love a good two-step’n beat!

During the interview Shane said, “Do it cause you cant not do it!”, my heart skipped a beat. What a fabulous way to look at life. And how true!

So often we get caught up in what we HAVE to do but then we find ourselves slowly dying inside, loosing our life dream and eventually the drive and passions of our youth. I don’t want to be that person…do you???

So what is it that you LOVE to do? Does baking excite you, or scrap booking, taking photos or painting? Do you dream of becoming a nurse or doctor, business owner or lawyer or maybe you dream of being a teacher or traveling the world? Is there a new invention or idea rolling around in your head?

What’s holding you back?

What if you really could do what you love?

Would you?

Why not start today.

Now I’m not saying it will be easy. It will take some adjustment in your thinking. You’ll need to silence that taped message in your head that reminds you of all the reasons you shouldn’t, couldn’t or cant. ERRR….I hate that tape! And it requires a step of faith. You have to, have to, have to believe you’re worth the risk, because let me tell you girlfriend…YOU ARE!

Your dreams are your God given gifts and talents given just to you to share with us. Please, please share!

Why not take a class? You could start with just one. I’m sure a girlfriend would watch the kids for an hour or two each week. You could do the same for her. If you want to paint but the cost of supplies is holding you back, why not check out your local thrift store for second hand and paint over an old canvas with ‘oops’ paint from the hardware store, and you could even let the kids paint with you. (It’s so worth the mess)

Just start!

If you want to travel but the busyness of life is holding you back why not start by planning. Research all the different things you’ll do when you get there. And sign up for travel updates on line.
GREAT DEALS are everywhere. You may be surprised and find yourself and the family on safari in Africa!

Just take one step, one little step towards your dream. You may find it easier than you think.

You can do it! I know you can! Try, come on, I know you want too.


  1. Awesome! I'm not good with words or expressing myself but I've always felt like that if we share more with others you NEVER know just what might hit home and help them out. That was a great post.



  2. GREAT thoughts!!! Thanks for sharing!
