Oh courage, where did you go?
I've been on a quest to find you. I realize now that I'm scared of you.
I just don't understand why I hold back. Part of me says I'm just being lazy, the part of me doesn't have a clue. I read an unbelievably inspirational blog post by Kathy Jeffords, she talks about this very thing. I received my regular email from Tara Gentile of Scoutiegirl.com, with headlines that read "Confessions of a fearful blogger." This is me. I thought to myself. I even put off reading it for days because I knew it was something that was going to affect me and it did. I never really knew where I lost my courage, my motivation even but it had been gone. I've tried for years to get my website going. It still to this day isn't what I want it to be. I make many excuses to myself.
My husband is such a wonderful supporter in anything I do. I share my dreams and ideas with him, he gives me the confidence boost and encourages all the way. I just can't seem to do it. I get pumped and ready to go then, don't. It's an awful feeling to. I just couldn't seem to get out of it.
I've been working on "Making Something Everyday for 365" a book by Noah Scalin. This has helped me but even with this I'm behind on my blogging. It's time I listen to my heart more than my brain. Or as my husband says, "don't think, DO!" I love this. It doesn't mean not to put any thought into what you do. He knows more than anyone I over think everything, it gets in the way. It's time I just DO.
After reading Kathy's post I realize, it's time for me to stop being afraid. It's time I found my courage.
Please read Kathy's post if you feel the way I did:
Thank you Kathy and Tara!
Kathy and her site are an inspiration:
I also had the pleasure of attending a great conference call yesterday with Tara Gentile and Bernadette Jiwa. I gained so much from this call but most importantly, "CONFIDENCE IS KEY!"
Tara's site is amazing and has been a huge help to me:
You can listen to the Branding Q&A call here:
Bernadette's site is great too:
Thank you Bernadette and again Tara.
It won't happen over night but I will try my best and continue to remind myself that CONFIDENCE IS KEY!
