“They blossomed, they did not talk about blossoming.”
~ Dejan Stojanovic, The Sun Watches the Sun
I’m guilty of it. I’m sure you’ve been guilty of it too.
We have an idea. For a book. For a business. For a holiday. For a themed party. For something that excites us so much that we just have to talk about it.
We talk, and talk and talk. We are in love with this idea. We preen it and shine it up, and caress it with our words.
Which creates a problem. After a while, to keep talking about a creative idea dilutes the power of that thing.
Eventually it collapses in on itself, and returns to nothingness.
If you took the smallest action to bring your idea into being, life would be breathed into it.
If you took another action there would be bones.
Another action – heartbeat.
More action – wings.
And so it would go until your beautiful idea would fly, and become the thing that was once only thought.
You were given this inspiration for a reason – so that YOU can birth your beautiful idea into being, and share it with the world.
You can do this!
There has been enough talk.

Yes! I agree. Beautiful
Nicole Cody! THANK YOU
Can I just say Hazel… every day you can do chores ,FOR WHAT ????, they are all back the next day so you can do them all over again . When creativity calls you must answer. Have you not heard the wonderful song by George Harrison ‘Whilst my Guitar Gently Weeps ‘ says it all .
Thank you Nicole you are a wonderful prodder .
Aha…. so you have incredible timing Nicole…. it feels like you’ve been gently looking over my shoulder and whispering…. fly…. go on… you can fly. So now you’ve helped me move with the air currents and I’m at the precipice and about to ……..fly! Wish me well…. x
I often feel like saying to Tim stop talking about it and just do it, he is a huge procrastinator
Thank you Nicole. This is exactly what I am going through right now. Yesterday I took the smallest of steps. I’m being brave and I’m quietly excited xox

Brilliant. And the Truth. Yes. Time for Action. Inspired Action.
Many thanks Nicole.
Yes! I’m totally in a spot of dithering, of wondering and not doing. Still scared, though.
Just pick one little corner and make a brave, tiny start xx
