“I don’t have time to write.”

Do you watch TV?

Do you surf social media mindlessly?

Do you spend more than ten minutes a day in worry or stress fuelled inaction?

Do you drink? 

Do you say yes to doing things you don’t really want to do in order please other people?

If you answered yes to any of the above items then you have time to write, you are simply choosing to use it to do other things. 

I love you, and I believe in you and your message. That is why I am being a hard ass with you this week. We all occasionally need a loving kick in the ass to get ours in gear and take our lives to the next level. 

If you are reading this, it’s because you know that it’s possible for life to be different than it is right now. You are looking for ways to do what you WANT to do instead of what you HAVE to do. You are right Life can be amazing. Your every moment can be vibrant and fully alive. Happiness and peace arrive NOW. I am going to break your brain a bit when I say they are available to you RIGHT NOW in the very moment that you are reading this. 

I can hear what you’re thinking, “yeah right, nice sunshine and rainbows fantasy Steph, I happen to live in the real world.” That’s the thing. Fully alive and vibrant doesn’t always mean sunshine and rainbows. It doesn’t always mean happy. It doesn’t mean perfect. It does mean intentional. It does mean fully present. It does mean fully engaged. All in for all of it. 

Full. Alive. Present. 

Choosing what you do. Designing your life. Writing because you want to instead of vegging in front of Netflix because you always do. Journalling it out with pen and paper instead of numbing it out with wine in a glass. 

You can keep telling yourself you don’t have time to write, or you can get started. You can keep delaying or you can start creating. It’s a choice, and it’s a choice that you are making. 

You might be making it because it’s the choice you have always made, and that’s ok. That choice brought you here. Now you can choose something new, or you can choose more of the same. The point is IT’S UP TO YOU. 

If you are ready to get writing, come join the Write Now Facebook Community where I share tips, stories and encouragement to help you get down to the work of writing. 

Much love Writers,
