Do you know you want something new, different, but aren’t exactly sure what you desire, or where to start? Maybe you’ve been through a break-up, divorce, death or some loss, and feel as though you’re starting over. Today’s episode is for you.
Today’s S.O.L. STORY is inspired by this time of year when people are reflecting on where they’ve come from, and where they’re going. Perhaps they’re not happy with where they are.
Is this you?
START WITH ONE.
No matter what you desire in your life, you cannot get to where you desire to go without taking one step.
You cannot build what you desire to build without taking one step.
What do you do when you feel like you have to start picking up the pieces and putting them back together again?
This is your time to decide what you’re going to build, and which pieces you’re going to use.
You have to start with ONE piece.
O.N.E. (You know how much I love a great acronym.)
O: Own it.
It’s your ability to respond.
If you don’t own it, you won’t be able to do something with it.
Instead you’ll get caught in blame, shame, guilt, and judgement.
You’ll waste a lot of time, and keep yourself from starting.
Own the opportunities.
See where the doors are open.
Look at where you are exactly in this moment that you are.
Right here, and now.
If you want to get somewhere, you have to start NOW, HERE, or you’ll get NOWHERE.
Start where you are. Or you won’t start.
What now. Then what next?
Take that next step.
Get down on your knee, and ask yourself to commit to YOU.
Commit to yourself. Commit to the plan.
Commit to your now…your next, your opportunity and fully OWNING IT.
When you own it, you have to work with.
You have a place to stand.
You have a place to live while you’re loving your life and your life’s work well.
I know, this may seem like it sounds way too simple.
The most profound things in life are the simplest.
The last thing you need is a complicated plan.
Keep It Simple S.O.L. Sister.
K.I.S.S. yourself today.
One moment. One minute. One plan. One sip at a time. One day at a time.

TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
What would you like to start today?
Own where you are. Where are you? Own it.
Write down any, and all opportunities, that you see in front of you right now.
Start with one.
Look at your now. Write about it.
Look at your next. What next? Write about it.
Write yourself an official ENGAGEMENT. Ask yourself to fully commit to you, your life, and your life’s work well.
To starting. To finishing.
