I was going to talk about the Golden Globes and show pictures of the beautiful actresses. I was thinking to use an app and place them side by side and present them to you with beauty tips and such. I chose not to do that. Why, I am sure you ask. Well, I am sure you have seen the pictures on every social media and most blog platforms.
Today I will share about my fear of this blog and how it took me so long to launch because of it. I’ve had an idea to launch a blog, since my daughter was born. I was so excited. I spoke to friends about it and even had a name for it. I got back to work and still nothing. I will say, as soon as she was born was probably not the best time as I was dealing with postpartum. As time went by, I was able to do it but I was stuck.
How would I start it? How much will it cost? I’m busy and tired was all things I would tell myself. I had so many people rooting for me and I still wouldn’t ask for help. A year went by and I got tired of talking about it and actually started a plan. I asked for help, created a budget and started writing. I finally created a launch date. The launch date was 12/31/2016. It didn’t happen on that date but I kept on pushing until I did which was four days later. I had to let go of the way it looked. It had to be perfect. The pictures, the font, the set up and words. Once I let go I could breathe knowing if it wasn’t perfect it would be ok. My intent would be loud and clear.
The response was overwhelming for me. Who knew I would receive so much love. I am grateful and happy that I can reach so many. So now the real work begins. Keeping my content interesting is something I will strive for. Creating blog posts that actually make a difference for you, my readers. I’m not interested in having a platform only to show pretty pictures. Although I am all about beauty you will get that and more.
Now that we are clear about that, think about one area in your life that you have a goal that you haven’t accomplished. That thing that you talk or think about constantly. What’s holding you back? What has you not share your gift with the world? Please know people are waiting for that gift or that project or that idea that can impact others in a good way.
I know it might seem scary but I can assure you once you actually take the action to do it the fear goes away. It turns into adrenaline and things start to happen to move you closer to your goal.
Please share with me your thoughts on this. I can’t wait to hear what gifts you have to share with the world.
