Without being too vague, I would just like to say that I learned a big time lesson this weekend.
And in hindsight, if I’d followed my gut and been proactive, I could have avoided the situation and wouldn’t have spent the majority of the weekend kicking myself for being complacent and…umm, lazy.
So, here’s my pep talk (to encourage both you and myself) for all of us who are standing on the fence, feeling a little wishy-washy about pursuing whatever it is we’d like to do someday but are too afraid to try and make happen today.
The next time we feel like we’re being prompted to do something, let’s just do it. We’ll gather the skills and resources and knowledge we have and make it happen. We are going to go out on that limb and take a chance and try it. That little fear we feel of not being good enough is stupid. We may not be the best at what we’re trying to do, but we probably darn sure aren’t the worst. And we don’t have to be perfect or the best, anyway. What we are is enough, and we’re going to live with that mantra in mind from here on out. We aren’t going to let fear be the reason we don’t try. And we’re going to live by the Bible passage that we were supposed to be heeding for the past few months (ahem), James 1:5-6 – “5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”
Now, let’s go get ’em.
