I have made 2 huge mistakes in my life. I let FEAR and EXCUSES keep me from pursuing my dreams.
Have you ever dreamed of doing something with your life?
Do you make new years resolutions every year only to find yourself in the same place year after year?
This is me.
This WAS me.
Today is symbolic because on 1/13/2014 I purchased this domain name. I had thought, pondered, questioned my friends about whether I should start a blog. All signs pointed to YES! Do it! I even got a logo professional made.
And here I am, 1/13/2016..Finally starting a blog.
Now I know you are wondering, how did I get here right?
Why did it take me 2 YEARS to actually start blogging?
I said it in the first sentence.. FEAR and EXCUSES
As you will learn eventually as I blog more (literally) I lead a very full life! I work, plan events, socialize, volunteer, craft, read among other things..and I have been using ALL of those things as EXCUSES as to why I haven’t started my blog.
I’m too busy, not enough time in the day..You know the sayings.
Then on top of that add FEAR.
- Am I good enough to blog?
- Its already so many bloggers out there its a waste of time for me to even try
- I don’t know how use wordpress
- I don’t know how to write a blog post
- I don’t know if anyone will read my blog
- Its not perfect yet, it doesn’t look like other successful blogs
All of these self defeating thoughts were constantly running through my mind. Every time someone asked me about my nonexistent blog, it would instantly stress and depress me.
Till one day..today that is. I decided to just go ahead and launch it.
I am stepping out on FAITH and believing 2016 to be my year of increase and I will no longer make excuses or allow fear to lead my life.
