I sat at my desk looking at my computer with a head swimming in things that I need to do. And I sat a little bit longer not taking any action because I thought, “I’m not good enough to do this yet. I need more time.” Then the self doubt filled my mind, “What am I thinking?! I CAN’T do this! I’m not nearly good enough!!!” Then fear set in, “What will people think? Will they laugh? Will they make jokes about me??”
I sat paralyzed at my desk and began to tear up at a dream that I thought could never happen for me. No one could POSSIBLY understand how I felt. I’ve been there before… with dreams bigger than me. With naysayers who said I didn’t stand a chance. Naysayers who were friends and family. Broken hearted and discouraged from something I loved, I remember weeping on my bed and being told that I needed to do something with my life more practical. More mundane. Because that’s just what people do.
Those words still pierce to this day.
All the what ifs and could haves flood my mind when these thoughts start creeping in. Why didn’t I do this? Gosh I wish I would have been smarter with my time. I shouldn’t have listened to myself and pursued my heart’s passion. Yes, I’ve been there. I am there. And to some extent I will always look back saddened and wonder what if.
