I lack in the right kind of confidence – the confidence that allows you to try new things, the confidence that is fueled by passion for your work. I’m always scared to say or do or write the wrong thing. I never feel like my writing is good enough to share (which I’m still surprised that I actually BLOG as often as I do). I’m terrified to start a “real” job/career – what if I’m not good at it?
My confidence is lacking so much that I often compare my life to someone else’s; why do they get to have an adventure and I don’t? Why are they traveling and I’m not? Why do they have a kick-ass job and I don’t? I am not at all proud of thinking this way btw! It hurts and it creates this heartburn feeling from the bottom of my stomach to the middle of my throat! And is it really necessary to make myself feel this way? No.
The reason why I’m not living anyone else’s life is because I am living my own. I need to stop thinking and start doing. I need to take the chances, the risks, and whatever opportunities I am given in order to be the best me I can be. I need to figure out where I want to be and what I want to do. I don’t want to settle. I deserve to work hard and have an adventure or two along the way.
“You can think your heart out but you need to start DOING!”
