Starting. Such a simple word but... it is often the hardest thing to do. When I'm lost, or overwhelmed, creating a solution through action is sometimes a struggle. Passion for something, like your art or music or writing, might help push through the reluctance. Making a commitment to yourself to start... and take steps towards your desired goal, is easy to say. Not always easy to actually do. It seems to me that 'starting' has a reward... in that it makes you feel good. "I FINALLY did it!" If we haven't been starting because of fear, each progressive 'start' builds our courage. The trick is to keep going after that first step, and follow through. When you look forward and see the obstacles, remember that good feeling of accomplishing the start... and desire to feel it again.
