Go Ahead... Jump In: by Kim Creagan

Good morning, Pecannooters! Kim Creagan sent us a terrific reminder that I wanted to share with you at the beginning of this brand new week:

Since graduating school and not being able to find a job in my profession, I've been trying to piece together some other creative means of making a living. It seems I have a lot of ideas, but I am having a hard time putting them into action. I often get caught up in the planning aspect of making it just right or figuring out if it will work, instead of just jumping in and seeing where it goes. So, here's a little reminder, to all us planners or procrastinators out there, that sometimes all it takes is jumping in. You may get wet and flounder around a little, but at least you tried.

I like this little quote that goes along with it too:

"Doing is a quantum leap from imagining. Thinking about swimming isn't much like actually getting in the water." ~Barbara Sher

Let's DO this week, instead of just imagining doing! I sometimes get stuck in the not-doing stage, and the excuse-making, and the time-wasting, and this week I want to jump in, get down to business, and drop the fear. How about you?

For more from Kim, check out her etsy shop and her other etsy shop. Photographs and artwork galore!

*Thanks, Kim!*


  1. Thanks so much for posting my work, Jess! I'm going to try to DO this week too. Who's with us? :)

  2. I think I need to post this image over my alarm clock, so it'll greet me when I wake up in the morning. Maybe it'll prevent me from hitting the snooze button 3+ times...
