If I could...

If I could...I have started this post a few times. I keep deleting what I write because it's just an excuse. I can. I just have to put more energy into it. I have to dedicate more time and resources. I have to think about what needs to be done. And then do it.

I want to get the Landmine Museum and Relief centre the truck they need to transport the kids, and I can, I just need to dedicate some time to the fund raising.
I want to help kids struggling with anxiety and depression - I see them everywhere - in the playground, neighbourhood kids, anecdotally in the newspaper. And I can, I just need to work out the cause of this avalanche of misery that we've created in the younger generation.
If I could, I'd write more. I can, but I need to be better at time management. Maybe use a dictaphone in the car or something?
If I could, I'd travel more. I need to stop wasting money, I need to make the most of the holidays.

If I could is an excuse. I think that's why I found it so hard to write a post on it. I knew I was kidding myself.

I can. I just need to....

  2. We need several lifetimes to achieve our goals don’t we. I always have to apply the brakes to cut down these desires or else I’d stress out trying to achieve them all.

  3. One step at a time and be kind to yourself as you step forward.

  4. Hmmmmm - so true. You can. I like your insight, energy and ideas. I'm sure you can do it.

  5. 'I Can. I just need to.' Thank you for these words.

  7. There's so much that gets in the way of achieving what we would like to do, but baby steps and a passion to succeed will get you there (or thereabouts) in no time at all. Thanks for joining us for the #dreamteam

  8. All about finding the time and prioritising. So hard!

  9. Oh I hear you on this. There are so many things I wish I could do or I could do better, but I take peace that I get done what I need to each day. There is something that needs to be said for intentional living though too. Turning I could into I did because plans were put in place to do so. I think it comes down to discipline and living in a world where so much demands our immediate time and attention.
