A few weeks ago, I saw a call that Jon Acuff was putting out to those that follow his blog, twitter, instagram (and who knows what else). For about 5 hours, I ignored the whole “you need to do this” feeling that I was experiencing.
With some things, that’s what I do. When I’m overly scared or intimidated by something, I procrastinate until I can’t sign up anymore… until the opportunity is gone. It’s a horrible habit that I’ve been trying to break myself of for a while. And for the most part, I’m doing better with it.
I delayed and delayed and delayed… until the RSS email came in from Jon’s blog. Then I felt convicted. Like I couldn’t turn away.
So I sent an email in… my hands shaking the entire time. My exact wording was “stepping out in faith on this” which is exactly what I’m doing.
I have no idea what my START experiment adventure should be.
I know the things I *want* in life… I just don’t know that I have the “footings” in place for them all. Hence the faith.
I’m journaling through this journey… I’ll be paired up with an adventure partner and be in a group of 24 (in addition to the BIG Facebook group of more than 2500… and the #StartSingles group that broke off it over the weekend of about 125 right now.) Already, I have been blessed by the people that I’ve “met” in these groups… as well as a couple people I’ve reconnected with. I have a new community of people that desire to make their lives awesome… and that might be exactly what God intended for me.
But that’s not enough for me.
Here I am. Laying it all out there. I need to step out and START something new, follow a dream, and see where it can go in 24 days.
Now I just need to figure out what that dream is.
What about you? If you had 24 days to do something – what would you do?
