Listen to the passion of your soul, set the wings of your spirit free and let not a single song go unsung. -Sylvanna Rosetti
I am my own hindrance sometimes. I have come to realize that. But I wonder, how long before I realize that standing still will not get me anywhere?
I have this huge fear (one of a thousand fears) that I am not smart enough to pursue my dreams. Who am I to be an inspiration to young girls when I’ve had some corrupted relationships with women myself? Can I really get the job and get it done? Will they be interested in me? What can I offer? How can I be an asset? Will I fail?
I suppose these are the questions that keep me from looking for a new job. I suppose these are the questions that keep me from making the right phone calls and connecting with the right people. I suppose these are the questions that are keeping me here, in Atlanta, my comfort zone. But I want to be challenged.
I’m an idea person. I come up with awesome ideas. I know how to set a plan. But implementation is not my thing. Fear kicks in and it’s like I forgot all the planning that I created. I’m not really sure how to stop that.
I have an awesome idea that I’m finally working on right now. This one I know will be a hit for a lot of women. The success will be in knowing that I can accomplish something that I’ve created. I don’t want to wait anymore.
On my birthday, from the urging of my friend, I made a wish. All I said was, “God, show me the way.” That was my breath prayer. This is my baby step. I know I can do this thing. I’m excited to get started and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. Two years after graduating college and I finally feel that I’m ready to step out on faith and make my little difference in the world.
