Starting is the hardest part.

There’s no denying that.

Whether starting something brand new or beginning from the starting line again.

Starting is unknown. And that scares us.

We have to venture out into a wilderness not seen before, take big risks, and deal with the harsh emotions that come with it.

As much as it’s a daunting task, what should scare us more is the complacency that comes from sheltering in place, barricading the walls, and covering the windows.

With being okay with the status quo.

When we are afraid to start we have to imagine what the regret might feel like if we don’t.

That premonition might be all the nudge we need to kickstart us on our journey forward.
