Sometimes, that's the best advice we can hear. Win or lose succeed or fail, go for it, and go all the way. As my flight instructor told me on the first day of flying lessons, "Keep one hand on the throttle and one hand on the yoke." "Aahhhhh!" I would say during my early lessons as the plane lifted into the air, but I kept the throttle pushed all the way in.
There are times when it's wise to be cautious. And there are times when the best thing we can do - the only thing we can do - is going for it by living big. Ask her out. Request the raise. Say no - and mean it. Learn to drive a racecar or climb a tall hill. Learn to snorkel or surf. Dreams remain dreams until you act upon them. Then they become real life.
Will you throw a few coins into the beggar's cup, or will you bring him a hamburger and fries from the local fast-food place? Will you do an average job at work, or will you look for ways to go big - really give it your best - in the everyday areas of your job? Will you put your all - your heart and emotions - into the relationship with the people you love? Will you wait for another, more convenient time to pray, or will you start genuinely trusting God?
You don't have to get a life. You've already got one. Live it, and live big.

This spoke right to my heart and I had to share with you, my tribe.
Do you know why? Because I am going after everything I want in 2018! Growing my business, asking for what I want. Already asked for what I wanted this month...the answer was NO. Did I like to hear NO, nope, but the sun came up the next day AND I am proud of myself for asking the big question.
Preparing myself me for the next time. I empowered myself to know I am worth it. SO ARE YOU!!
I am taking that big trip this summer to Hawaii for a writing workshop. Yes! I am so excited! Life is too precious to waste and sit back and watch it go by.
What are you going after this year?
How are you Living Big in 2018? Ready to find romance? New career? Ready for some accountability? Send me a note and tell me. I want to know because you matter to me. I don't want you to feel stuck one more day.
Please share this blog post with someone who could use some positive words. Maybe your sister, coworker, or neighbor. I hope my words convince you to live a life you LIVE BIG in.
