I’ll warn you now, this is sort of a stream of consciousness post and I’m not entirely sure where it’s going to end up but I need to try..so here it goes.
I learned a hard lesson this week and it’s still toying with me. I don’t want to go into too much detail but basically I hesitated, I made excuses for why I shouldn’t go for it and ultimately talked myself out of it…essentially closing the door in my own face. Then as I watched from the sidelines, I realized my mistake and now I’m completely restless and mad at myself.
Ever heard the expression: “Life only hands you situations you can deal with?” Well, I’m hoping that’s true because I’m in a weird unsettled place now, stuck between trying to go for it all, not knowing the outcome will be and holding up in lieu of taking the risk. My heart has one opinion and my mind has a different one.
Normally my dad would talk me through these types of scenarios but since he’s not here, I’m left to figure it out.
Why am I telling you all this? I’m not really sure except to make sure that if the opportunity is in front of you and your balking…don’t. Take it….Run with it….Be ready for challenges and handle them with grace. Excel. Don’t be afraid, be confident because if you aren’t confident in yourself no one will be.
You got this…now go!
