I am not ready to post pictures yet, as the kitchen and living room have proven to be more daunting than I had originally anticipated.
If the truth be told, I have hit a mental stumbling block. I have been bombarded by “what-if”‘s.
- The assumptions I’ve believed about myself are true, and I totally screw this up?
- Things aren’t any better after we leave this situation?
- This situation is the best that I deserve?
- We completely fail?
What if, indeed. So what if all of those things happen? Is taking a chance not more important, than staying in a mediocre lifestyle, for fear of failure?
We all have pasts. We all have made mistakes. But our pasts are not who were are, and they are not indicative of our futures, if we don’t allow them to be.
Making changes is scary, but not for the reasons that many think. Making changes involves confronting yourself, and your long-held beliefs about yourself. It involves taking the risk that you’ll find out that those beliefs were true all along.
But here is the thing. Even if you fall flat on your face, it doesn’t prove those beliefs to be true. There is no mistake that you can’t bounce back from. Failure only happens when you choose to give up.
So, today is a new day. I intend to get out of my own way, and make a huge push forward, toward realizing my dream, that is so close to becoming reality.
Life is too short to spend it paralyzed by fear.
