Life Step No. 1: Show Up

15 10 2013

Show Up

“And I just showed up for my own life; and I’m standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright.” (Sara Groves)

I’ve been thinking all day about the importance of living fully the life we’ve been given.  So many do not.

Woody Allen once said, “Seventy percent of life is just showing up.”


I’ve lived in a half-hearted way too much of my life.  Maybe you have too.  Mediocrity never squeezes the nectar from the fruit.


Show up.

Be all there.

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.  Or it’s not worth it.

Eschew the “just get by” mentality.

Jobs, gifts, projects, enterprises, roles–all of it.  Jump in with both feet.

We only get one crack at this.
