Get off your....

Sometimes we need a little encouragement to get off of our own (ahem) donkey,  AND do something. Anything, something outside of our own personal thoughts, ideals, lives. Do something different. Put the kettle on and walk over to your neighbour's house and invite them in for tea. Take a walk around the block and carry a bag with you, pick up any trash you see, head down town with a case of water and hand it out to the homeless people, talk to them. Remember the story of the Good Samaritan Luke 10:34 says "Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds ..." The Good Samaritan got off his donkey, took one step and changed the life of this man and his family forever. He got off his Donkey.

Duy and I are headed to Uganda in 9 days (Eeek!) (check out the fancy count down I added to the blog over there ->) 9 days. This isn't something that just came up, this has been in the works for a long time. Our Living Life On Purpose journey started long before I ever posted our "It's Time for Africa Post" on July 17, 2014, making it really REAL. At that moment we had no idea what it looked like, no clue where we were going, just that we were going. We were tired of sitting around talking about doing, yet never actually doing anything. So we just started. And here we are, 429 days later, we are packing our bags, and adventure awaits.

Let me encourage you that no matter how big your dream is, no matter what it is, it all starts with one small step. Remember the saying; "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time"... it's true with everything, the greatest adventures in the world start with one step.

So take that step today, even if that one step is just sharing your dream, you can do it.
Just get off your Donkey, and take one step...
Share the love,
M.
