Dear Resourceful Girl,

One of the worst mistakes we can ever make is to wait, and wait, and wait for there to be the “right amount,” the “right person” or the “right circumstances” to start living the life that is calling to us.

No matter where we are or what we have, there is always a way to point our feet in the right direction and just begin.

So, dear friend, begin today. Begin with something big or begin with something small, but begin. It is no coincidence that the same idea, dream or thought has been tugging at your heart and trying to capture your attention for so long. Just begin. Begin with one step. Then just take another and another.

If you are waiting for the perfect time to start, well guess what?

The perfect time is now. And if you think your time has passed, rest assured that it is not too late. Begin today.

As the old Chinese proverb says, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second-best time is today.”

Do what you can with what you have right now, today. Begin.

You are so very loved.
