When I was younger I wanted to be a lawyer. I changed my mind once I learned how many years you have to go to school in order to become one. My stepmom used to tell me “the years will pass anyway”. But I wasn’t trying to hear that. Ah hindsight. It’s 20/20. The good news though? I’m not a lawyer. That definitely wouldn’t have worked for me. Oh, and the lesson hasn’t been lost. The years will pass anyway.
Monday, I launched a new business venture with my friend. A three year long dream that has finally manifested. And I almost didn’t do it. Oh I had a million and one excuses–read more here. One of them? It was going to take too long.
I did it anyway. Days turned into weeks. Weeks into months. Months to years. The time was going to pass whether I was working on it or not. So I worked. Not all the time, though I should have, there’s goes that hindsight again. But, I continued. For three years.
The products were crafted. The designs were finalized. The supplies were ordered. The website was created.
On Monday our dream went from vision to life. And it was definitely worth the wait.
If you’re on the fence about doing something, creating something, writing something…there are many things that can pop into your head of why you shouldn’t do it. One of them should not be time. The best things are worth the wait.
And if not…I mean…the years will pass anyway ;).
I grabbed this prompt from GG Renee’s #30days30layers challenge. Stretching my creativity for #NaBloPoMo. Catch you tomorrow.
