Just Start

Anna Sarayna

There is something inside YOU that the world needs to experience, YOU who play small and feign ignorance, hiding behind excuses and your own concocted insecurities born of the fear you cultivate with thoughts of all the time you’ve wasted and all the times you’ve tried and failed. You who know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this thing will not be silenced, must be allowed to exist if you are to ever be or feel truly alive.

Everyone who knows you knows it and in their own way, they cheer you on. Like spectators to the greatest show on earth they urge you to go on; to dare the light to shine.

What are you so afraid of that you would rather dream than live, hope than do? What fate could be worse than never living a single day in all the years that you’re alive? Failure? You’ve done that already! You’ve perfected it. Give yourself a greater challenge, one that your talents are worthy of.

Do yourself a favour. Do the world a favour. Start living, doing, being. We need your contribution more than you know.

A man on the other side of the world is awaiting your song to ease his sorrow. That boy who doesn’t know he’s an artist is waiting for your drawing to inspire him and set his creativity free. Someone in a battered marriage is waiting for your article or story to give them the courage to walk away. Someone else, just like you, is waiting for YOU to unleash their power. They don’t know it yet, but the world needs YOU. YOU and all the talents you are so afraid to embrace and unleash.

So do us all a favour. START!

When I originally mentioned on Instagram that I write myself letters all the time and open them later at a set date (kind of like a time capsule with wishes of sorts) I got some questions about what to include in such a letter. As nervous as this oversharing makes me...



I have been thinking a lot lately about purpose, more specifically, the manifestation of it. As 2018 draws to a close with less than 3 weeks remaining many of us may find ourselves getting anxious. The unknown is a daunting thing. It doesn't matter how many new years...

No one is coming to save you. You're the key to getting unstuck - not a guru or teacher, or some other person who's done what you so desperately want to do. Yes, there are lessons to be learned from others and there is something to be said for harnessing external...
