http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezctLYQGKco Here's the thing, when I started this blog I had no clue about any of it. All I had were a bunch of words put together that developed into messages.
I was scared, nervous, excited, doubtful inspired, but all I knew was if I didn't know what I was doing, but it felt right, I should just work on getting it done. After all, we all start somewhere and the hardest thing is sticking with it through thick and thin.
I heard this song and it kind of reminded me of that childlike character we adopt when we start something new. As we learn through trial and error, we begin to get confident as we progress and we want to explore things further, we forget about the struggles because we're sticking with who we are. For instance now, I’m now working on my very first book, if someone told me that four years ago I’d probably laugh along with doubters, all I know is, if I put enough passion and dedication behind something, I’ll eventually figure it all out.
The journal entries I kept turned into this blog, this blog opened the door to the book that I’m writing and I also have plans for what comes next, but I've learned to take things one step at a time to learn more and gain even more confidence in my abilities.
People always have excuses as to why they cannot start right now, but this experience has taught me that nothing will change tomorrow unless I make it happen now. Each day a post gets delayed, each day I don’t spend writing, each day I don’t work to my potential is a day I've put my life on hold.
Find those little pockets of time to get things done even if you haven’t figured out how to do it yet. I know that in 20 odd year’s I’ll look back on my life content with the fact that I'd have invested my time well, even during crappy moments.
Today, even if you only have a small crumb of interest in something, explore it and who knows what wonders you may uncover, you may just discover your passions. Let doubters do the doubting and live life fulfilled by sticking with the things you love and staying true to yourself.
