[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Almost doesn't count

Don't get stuck in an "almost" life Tim Storey

This morning after running I thought about heading to the beach as it was
early I thought it would be a good time to sit by the water and chat with
Mother Nature a bit and then the little voice in my head started
chattering, you're tired, stay home and eat, or even better go back to
sleep! Then another voice,very quietly reminded me of what Tim Storey
talked about living an "almost" life and it starts with the little things
and the little things turn in to big things, so I jumped in the car and
headed down to the beach, what a great decision it was, I felt relaxed and
had a very lovely chat with Mother Nature. As I heading back to the car, I
saw one of my favorite elder teachers, I call her Mumzy! Haven't seen her
in a hot minute and we sat and chatted, which is always lovely because she
downloads a lot of wisdom!

What did I learn today? Almost doesn't count, do it or shut it! How lame is
it to say I almost went to the beach, or I almost went to run or I almost
lived my dreams! Almost is an excuse when you know you can just get up and
do it!
