Stepping Out Into Myself
It begins now, and in every moment
This is it. This is exactly the moment that, if I engage with it instead of run from it, I will grow tenfold.
I feel overwhelmed. I feel exposed. I feel like I've bitten off more than I can chew. I feel out of my depth. I feel unworthy.
But this is just what I wanted. Or at least, what I was anticipating when I declared my goal to learn in public.
Feel the fear and do it anyway. Find the next tiny step I can take, then take it. Then another. And another.
Then before I know it, I'll have published something and feel the tangible accomplishment of having shared something authentic about myself in full view of others.
So be open. Be vulnerable. Allow myself to feel what I feel, and acknowledge that with others. Be authentically me and let others see me for who I am.
Yes, that's terrifying, but it's also liberating.
Because without accepting myself for who I am (and writing about myself in public is a great, tangible way to do that), I can never move forward.
So today I took a step. A leap. A risk. And now I feel validated. True to myself. And confident I can take another step tomorrow.
