How about NOW

So here’s the thing, I hear people say, “When my children are grown and are on there own, I’m gonna…..(fill in the blank)” or “I would like to……..(?) but don’t have the time right now.”

Why not now? Are you afraid? Is it “fear” that keeps you from taking that first step to fulfilling your hearts desire? If so, you’re not alone. Fear can absolutely be a paralyzing emotion. Learn to make it work for you and not against you. I understand that there are some things in life that need to “wait’ there turn when it comes to long term goals, but fear need not keep you from planning to take action. Sometimes timing is everything!

If fear of failure is an issue, as is with most people, look at failure in a different light with a different attitude. Instead of fearing failure, embrace it! Take on the mind set that although failure may not be an option for most people, it is for me (you)! Allow yourself many chances to fail so you can be good at failing. Seriously, stay with me….. Once you knocked out the “Oh my God I don’t want to fail” kind of anxiety that whispers in your mind, you will eventually be able to feel calmness and peace inside that will allow yourself to succeed. But here’s the deal, if you don’t start now with this thought in your head, it will take you longer to get there… if at all! So again, how about now?! Think about it.

It takes time to retrain your brain from old habits to new habits. Practice, practice, practice. Discipline your thoughts. Your thoughts will move you to action. What is in your heart? What lies there usually is a clue to a “passion” or your desire for “something”. What do you want to do about it?

Again I ask, How about NOW? Why not now?

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
