Okay, I admit it. My heart is pounding and I’m sweating at the thought of setting up this blog site and making a commitment to posting to it weekly. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone because I’m technically challenged and I’m afraid I won’t be able to figure how to navigate this site. But I’m doing it anyway because I refuse to look at a scardy cat in the mirror.
Here are my three biggest fears:
1)I”m afraid to commit to writing something and posting it every week because I may run out of ideas. Thanks to my sensible and creative self which says, “Nonsense. Just do it,” here I am writing a blog.
2) Do I really have something to say that needs to be said? My sense of inadequacy sometimes surfaces when I start creating, but I’m willing to move beyond this fear.
3)Will people actually come to my blog site so they can follow what I have to say on a weekly basis?
Giving careful thought to the above, I know that it is time for me to step out of my comfort zone and take a chance on following my dream. I want to write a book this year and this is my starting point. I’m thinking that if people are interested enough to read my blog they may be interested enough to buy and read a book that I would write.
So, here I am world. My first post on my new blog site. I’m willing to be uncomfortable in order to follow what I’m passionate about, which is writing. Next week, I’ll have more to say about leaving our comfort zone. Until then, I trust you’ll leave me a comment.
