The famous phrase “Start Today” is something I personally hold dear to my heart because I have held my own self back numerous of times throughout my life to the point I felt stuck, desperate, and useless. How many times have you stayed in place because you felt scared to move as little as a inch? It’s a proven fact that throughout life everyone will go through their share of disappointments and struggles (some more than others). One tiny piece of information many forget is the part that everyone handle disappointments differently for example one person can get knocked down 9 times and get back up 10 while the next person may get knocked down 9 times and decide there is absolutely no point of getting back up. After countless of failed tries I decided to stay down and watch everything around me go on.
At first I was a tad bit numb and didn’t think much about it because getting back up seemed pointless to me. Why put my all in something when the past programmed me to think that nothing good would come from it? I would have my share of good days but the bad days were paralyzing to no end. Starting over again was always in the back of my mind but due to flashbacks, depression, anxiety, and back to back disappointments I would become paralyze as well as numb also. It took me years to decide to start again even though time has gone by and there is no way of collecting it back…I still decided to start again.
You can do the same also if you were trying to decide whether to or not. Time is something that we all are told to cherish yet many including myself allow for it to be wasted. After careful consideration I have discovered the famous phrase “Start Today“ is exactly the answer I needed. If you have told yourself that something needs to be done but keep putting it off make the decision to stop and “Start Today“! Tomorrow is never promise and the past can only be looked at as a reference sheet due to the fact even though we all wish we could go back to it unfortunately no one can, our only option is to “Start Today“.
There is no set amount on how much you have to try in one day but everyone knows how much he or she can endure at one time. One helpful tip I have learned is to not overstress myself and understand that its a process in itself, basically meaning that things will not suddenly be achieved or fixed overnight. (Even still til this day I do wish everything could actually be that simple, its not.) Most times one must have faith and trust in the process in order for different positive results to happen. Deciding to “Start Again Today” is only the beginning and one of the most important decisions that you will have to make. After I made the decision to “START Today“ it felt as if a load was lifted off of my chest which was a major relief to have. Let it do the same for you!
