If you can't stop thinking about something, don't stop working for it. How many times have you had something on your mind for a long time? How many times have you said to yourself, "I would like to do this, but I don't have the time"? How many times have you looked at other creative entrepreneurs and wish you had started? If you've been thinking about doing something, my suggestion is that you just start. Work for that dream of yours and believe in yourself. If it is in your mind, that means something! It's better to work towards something you love than to keep repeating the same questions over and over. If things don't go according to plan, it is a lesson. But if you don't do what you've been wanting to do, I'm sure you'll regret it later.
This happened to me with my blog. I started my online business and blog in September 2012 and spent almost a two years working on it. Life happened, and I took a two-year blog hiatus. Two years is a long time in blog land. But the idea of getting back to work on my blog was there. I've always loved sharing inspirations and connecting with others so I spent almost a year thinking about blogging again but never did something about it. Until one day, I was with a friend telling her the things I wished I was doing and I said: "I don't want to spend the rest of my life thinking 'what if?'". After sharing that with her, it was like a wake-up call. I just answered my question about whether or not I should blog again. That same week, I started working towards this brand new site.
It took me almost two years to realize that I needed to stop procrastinating and start doing. It's never too late to work towards something you want. So if you can't stop thinking about something, don't stop working for it! :)
