My Wishes

The thought keeps running through my head: "I've improved in those things that I've consistently spent time on."  So what about those things that I'm "wishing" about? The reality is that I have spent little to no time on those things.  Why not?  Here are some of my internal reasonings:
 
  1. They seem too big to accomplish.
  2.  I have to learn something new.
  3. They require an investment of time to learn and to do them.
  4.  I have to spend some money on learning or materials. 
 
Ha! As I write this, I realize that these were the very same hurdles that I faced when I started writing my book Whispers of God.  
 
They seem too big to accomplish.
Whispers of God was always going to have poems, paintings, and commentaries.  So here's the list of everything that had to be done:
  • Who was going to paint the paintings?  How would we collaborate on them?
  • What were the content of the commentaries going to be? 
  • Where and How do I get my book published?
 
I had to learn something new.
  • I had to learn to explain the things that I see/felt represented my poems and the heart intention behind them.  I had to keep my heart open to what the artist was doing to see if it aligned with the poetry.
  • I had to learn how to write a story so that my commentaries spoke to people.  Writing the poems was simple compared to this.  Especially after having an editor give me feedback!
  • I had to learn to lay out a book in Microsoft Word.  This one took alot of patience!  Formatting had never been my strong suite, but if I didn't set it up right, then there wouldn't be consistency across the pages.
 
They require and investment of time to learn and to do them.
Whether it was spending time rewriting commentaries or learning how to layout the book, there was a serious amount of investment of time.
 
I have to spend some money on learning or materials.
I spent significant amount of money to have the paintings made and to print my first sets of books.
 
I still have the same amount of time I had when I developed my book, so how do I find the same passion within the other areas that I'm "wishing" about to actually start making something happen?  I Googled "Changing your wishing into doing".  Here are some of the resources I may look into:
 
 
If you're still reading, then you get the juicy tidbit of information about me.  My "wishes" are:
1.  To have a regular beauty routine for both my makeup and clothes
2.  To have a autoimmune protocol menu plan that tastes good and works 60% of the time for the whole family.
3.  To have a completely organized and decorated home top to bottom.
4.  To be fully satisfied on who I am to God, that I don't feel less than because of what I don't accomplish or haven't yet become.
 
What about you?  How do you help yourself jumpstart a "wish" into a doing?  What are your "wishes" you'd like to change to "doings"?
