It’s been a long time since my last post. As in months. Just like riding a bike, some things have stayed with me. Like a need to tell my story. And friends who won’t let me forget that I have a story to tell. Also, I hit the half way point in my thirties last week and that gave me some things on which to look back.
So I’m back. And with me is that old nagging sensation of fear. I’ve learned a few things about fear. I know it has no place here. If I choose to walk in victory, then fear will flee. I’ve also learned that naming the fear makes it smaller.
For my first blog post in a long while, I’m gonna list the reasons I’m afraid to write and share my thoughts. Maybe knowing I have fears will help you face yours.
1. What if someone else has the same thing to say and they say it better?
2. What if no one cares?
3. What if someone cares a lot on the opposite end of the spectrum from me? And then they tell me?
4. What if I disappoint someone?
5. What if I stop again?
Those are the big five. So they’re out there for everyone to see. And I’m punching them in the face.
See you next time
