There Is Only Now

“It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” - Hugh Laurie

Alrighty, so the other week my dad told me this cool quote from Hugh Laurie and since then I keep seeing it everywhere and it's great. It kind of sparked my creativity this holiday and convinced me to pursue some things I'd been putting off. I am a fond believer of the 'oh I'm not good enough I'll do it another day' phase of life so actually doing something and putting myself out in the open is hard. I saw a couple of bloggers during the #NZBloggers chat the other day saying that they'd tell their younger self to just do it, finally start that blog, stop putting it off, you'll be great at it. It's something we should tell our present selves more often. Harder than it looks though right?

But you know what, I'm going to try! I've already started on the long road to summer paid internships so that's already on the way but that little lettering side project I've been wanting to do for ages? Well now it's on it's way too! I'm currently practicing my butt off and planning all the things I need to do in order to open the print shop next month. I know I need to practice so much more but it's going to happen, I don't care if no one buys anything it's going to happen. You can check out all my progress on Instagram at Sofillyink, let me know what you think and if there's any quotes you're loving at the moment.

And ya know, start that project you've been planning for a while. Thought about doing YouTube along with your blog, start filming practice shots. Thought about trying out a new hobby, just do it and stop putting it off!
