There was one line in the book, though, that really jumped out to me. Note - I forgot to highlight it on my Kindle
And this stuck with me. When I was a little kid, there were times when I completely lived in my head. (This could also be called "having a big imagination.") But I used to go on solitary walks or hit tennis balls against our garage door for hours and just think. I'd dream about what I would do "when I grew up" or I'd write multiple novels or movies in my head. (I had friends, too, mind you. But I also had no problem being alone.)
When I got a little older, a lot of my dreams centered around "when I get married..." Or "when I have kids..."
Ummmm - I'm there now. I'm married and have a child.
And on the flip side actually, now that I am married with a child, occasionally I find myself thinking, "I should've done _______ before Bates was born," or "______ would've been so much easier to accomplish before I got married." And I'm not that old! I can't imagine what a lifetime of "I should haves" looks like!
And so here I am now; I want to commit to at least try to get out of my head. Instead of dreaming, I want to start doing. And I want to stop using the excuse "now isn't a good time," because really, I'm not sure there will ever be a good time for anything.
The goal now is to figure out what that actually looks like! What should I do to get out of my head?
