Three Things — Step By Step

Three Things, my Wednesday post series, inspired by my love for bite-sized, tiny but mighty pieces of information.

One. This —

You’re never in the wrong place. Sometimes you’re in the right place looking at things in the wrong way.

— Abraham Hicks

Totally agree with this one. Lessons learned and collected. Put to use as a stepping stone for the next one. Standing on tip toe reaching out as far as I can for the one after.

I treasure my ability to assess a situation from all angles. It wasn’t always this way. I worked hard for it. Myopic to Telescopic.


Two. “Welcome.” —

Parts of my book take place 15 years ago. The version of myself then, the one I no longer recognize as me, I think of as Robyn 1.0. Short on self worth and awareness of herself, her besties guilt and shame kept her busy.

Rather than holding old parts of ourselves separate, what if we opened our arms and welcome them back to the fold. We’re all in this together. Robyn 1.0 helps me understand where I’ve been, I’m showing her where we’re going.


Three. Today. —

Choose to be happy. Not after you lose ten pounds or the heat lets up. Or when you’re finally on vacation. Or after September 15th because that’s when _______ happens. What if we all just started right now?

I am.

I’m sitting here in my pajamas. My coffee is almost gone and my to do list is a mile long. I’m behind and my hair is hot mess express bundled on the top of my head. I have three pieces to write today and a couple of phone calls as well. Big deal.

I’m not going to blur everything together on repeat at a breakneck speed in my head. For what purpose? Instead, today I’m going to do the next thing in front of me with a smile on my face. And then I’m moving on to the next.
