January 3, 2014
In case you missed it yesterday, the blog is still the same blog... just needed a little facelift for the changes in 2014!I got tired of looking at the black page with the grey backing. This is a little more "me" and a little more upbeat for the adjustment I am working on with myself.
I was on the interwebs this AM on the book of faces when I stumbled across this phrase... it struck a chord for me after I conversation with my Pops the other day when I took him out for his birthday lunch on New Years Eve.
Now, I am not typically one to "give up" and I certainly not afraid to push myself to my limits... however I would be lying if I said that I was never afraid. I sometimes have a fear of the unknown, don't we all? I sometimes also have a fear of starting something new, simply due to my fear of failure. I have said before that failure is my 100% biggest fear in life... personally I consider that to be both a blessing and a curse.
More often than not I am pleasantly surprised when I try something that I have feared. It might end up to be not that bad, it sometimes ends up being easier than I thought... and in the BEST circumstances, it lights the fire in me, it starts the fight and it drives the want to get what it is that I was so afraid of. All I have to do is take the first step.
In this new year I am doing my best to skip over the "fear." I have to have faith in myself, go for what I want. I know what I have inside will get me there. It might be a long road, it might suck... but whats life without a little challenge? I have to try new things... and have no fear!
I love me a good challenge!
