Show up. Commit. Get active. Start one thing instead of only thinking about starting 20, but ending up being too busy thinking rather than doing. Don’t feel guilty for “letting down” all of your other passions if you pick one and commit to it fully. Be proud that you’re decisive. You’re naturally always going to miss out on a lot of things in life, but it will only be painful and feel like you’re missing out if, while trying not to make the wrong decision, you end up not picking anything at all. Share your light. Commit. Get active. You and the world deserve your light being shared.
