Yup, that sounds totally ridiculous to be celebrating running twice this week, but I am. Both times I ran 1.30 miles around my neighborhood. My ankles are aching and every muscle is sore, but I am happy. I can do this.

Although the video does have to do with someone running, I believe that the idea that you can do what you want to if you just do it can be applied to many situations.
Watch this video and then go make that change that you've been thinking about:
