Remember when I said I was the only thing holding me back from seeing my dreams become reality? Well, that same day I decided to actually put into practice something I wrote. For months my fears and insecurities had held me back from something I really wanted to do: write for (in)courage.
Six times I sat down to write. Each time I got back up, frustrated and irritated.
Almost daily I write posts for my own blog. Sometimes it’s harder than others to get the words out, but I always write something. Each time I attempted to write a post for (in)courage, my words faltered and my mind went blank.
I wanted it to be perfect. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
So I stuttered and stalled and stopped. Allowing my fears and insecurities to hold me back.
But, guess what?!
I did it…
That’s right! I finished it, and I sent it in.
And they accepted it!
