What’s getting in your way?
Perhaps something came to mind for you. But is that the real reason? What’s the why behind the reason? Why do you feel like __ is getting in your way?
I often find myself wrapped in great excuses for why I’m stuck. What is an excuse but a reason to avoid doing things?
What if I’m just scared? Scared of failing. Scared of uncertainty. Scared of rejection and looking like a boob. Well, at least then I’m being honest with myself.
It’s okay to be afraid. It’s okay to feel lonely or defeated or tired or clumsy or lackluster or jealous. That makes us all human. That’s what allows us to seek others and grow. What’s not okay is letting loneliness, fear. fatigue or despair have the last laugh. At the end of a bad day, all we can really do is wash off our bruises, take care of ourselves the best we can muster, and get up tomorrow and try again.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
