The Fear That Holds You Back

The fear that holds you back is often times an irrelevant fear that is completely made up in your head. You can do more than you think you can. It all boils down to how bad you really want it, staying consistent, and blocking out all the nonsense that states otherwise. 

We are our own worst enemy.

I know I have probably had 100 ideas, started each of them 27 and a half times just to be right back where I started because I have self-doubt like a mother (but really, I am a mother and this is my lame attempt at being a gangster).

We can do much more than we allow ourselves to do. So why do we self-sabotage things? What is the deal? We encourage people so that they have the ability to take that next step all the time as mothers and spouses and friends. Why is wanting to do something more for ourselves so much harder? Is it the fear of people thinking that you may not know what you are actually doing, even though you know your friend has an amazing talent and could go far?

STOP IT.

Stop it now. You have to start realizing that you are just as good as something as your friend is of their talent. You are capable of doing the things you want to and succeeding. You really are. You have the ability. You just need a little boost of courage – and I don’t mean liquid courage.  I know my blog has sounded like a broken record with the starting over, and taking the first step is the hardest, and blah, blah, blah. I think that now I really believe myself! I just need to now figure out what it is that I am trying to do (That is key right – ha!).

They Say You Will Know.

I am hoping that is really true. I keep writing down ideas as they pop into my head. I know there are a couple things that I want to do and I will get them done as they are pretty normal things. There are a couple things that will take a little more dedication and discipline that I just need to have a “come to Jesus” meeting with myself about. Even in these little things that I want to do, they aren’t what I want to do for like a living or purpose, they are more to get me jumpstarted in that direction like they are on my journey to find out what I really want to be doing. I feel as if taking the long road is usually my style. It may take longer but is a more comfortable route for me. I like comfort, but still feel like I won’t be 100% comfortable.

I Will Get There – Want To Join Me?

No, this isn’t the part where I sell you something. I am serious – do you want to join me on this journey?  There is strength in numbers and sometimes it just takes watching someone else to really get the drive going in yourself. If you want to watch this next journey I take – just follow along. Either sign up for email updates, or check back as I update!

You Have To Begin Somewhere

You have to begin somewhereNo matter what it is that you are thinking about doing, you have to begin somewhere, take that first step and begin.  Take that first step. For weeks I had been contemplating the idea of blogging again. I really love to write and talk to people through my writing. When it comes to actually writing, I just get really anxious about the process. I can make lists all day long about what to write about, when to post it, where to share it, and all that jazz.

It should just be logical that the next step is to go ahead and write, correct? Yes! However, I just tend to shut off there. I had plenty of friends who I would write topic lists for about blogging ideas. They were then able to take off running with their blogs and make traction. I still sat here with my list in hand and nothing more than that. You have to take that first step, you have to begin somewhere.

I am not afraid so what is my deal?

I am not one who is afraid of what people will say because most of you I probably will never meet and that is okay., and I don’t mind. It won’t be an everyday occurrence that I will run into someone who read my blog. So what is my issue with taking that next step? Who knows. I just know I need to get over whatever it is and take that first step and begin somewhere.

What is something that you have prepared for over a period of time but failed to follow through on?

Get Your Crap Together

Get Your Crap Together Molly

Man, I need to get my crap together. I know that I have got to get back into a routine to make things happen! It never fails – moms, I know you feel me – that your kids start school and things go well. Then comes Thanksgiving break, things are off for a week, but as soon as you get back, Christmas break hits. Kids home, husband home, everyone is home. No routine as you have to get them all taken care of and fit all your crap into things also. New Year hits, you take a couple weeks to get back into it – Spring break arrives. Crap. Now to really just muster through and get back to routine in about three weeks for school to let out. Crap again. Now to create a whole new routine that caters to kids all the time and work and everything else.

Get it together I tell myself plenty of times.

I honestly am beginning to think that me trying to make everything fit into my schedule is what is creating these issues. God is laughing at me for trying to do it all my way. He is telling me to calm myself, look upward and rely on Him.  I just wish that He could just help me out and maybe put it on my Google calendar, or even pencil it into my Erin Condren planner. It would be great – right?

Too bad, so sad…it doesn’t work like that.

I am going to continue to plan, but I will do it in pencil. I know this will frustrate me a lot, but I know that I can do nothing but say “Yes Lord” and keep moving. Let us not get so uptight about things that we cannot see that there is a divine purpose in it all.

Rest easy friends – I feel you.
