This is a letter I got from Brave Girls Club about a month ago:
Reading it, what I most felt was relief. I have been questioning my wants and doubting myself and my abilities so much lately in this on again/off again pursuit of… something. I compare myself to those who have already “succeeded” in creating their online personas and cultivated a large following. Whether it’s in their own art, their poetry, their photography, or in their own niche, I am envious. There, I said it.
I often feel that I’m spinning my wheels… directionless. But then I saw this from one of Christine Mason Miller’s blogs, “Ordinary Moments,” and there was another deep exhale from within.
My treasured weekday mornings alone fly by in what seems like half a heartbeat and I try to cram as many projects and tasks in as possible. It’s not a relaxing feeling at all… more like being under the gun to keep crossing items off that ever-lengthening list. So changing my perspective toward the knowledge that there will be time enough for it all reassures me immensely!
And finally, there’s that idea that everything up to this moment has led me to exactly where I most need to be right now. It’s all a necessary learning experience. If I am true to myself and can trust the unfolding, I can let go of the worry.
Such a relief! Everything is going to be amazing.
Please share what worries or thoughts you’ve been able to let go of with a little shift in perspective. I’m very interested.
