Dear fellow trailblazers,
I'm been writing this blog in my head for over two months now. Missing you. Missing our connection and communication and also keeping myself too busy to sit down and write it. I had a million reasons to keep putting it off, tasks both important and menial, pressing, and distractions. But in the end, I was just terrified of failing. Of writing the wrong thing, of doing a crappy video, of what you might think of me. I was feeling bad and amateur because I dedicate a few months each year exclusively to my summer program a.k.a. what pays the mortgage. Fulfilling the teacher part of me while parking the artist in me, I've been judging myself into paralysis and silence. As we are all human, and I bet you know a little bit about what I'm talking about, I thought, instead of continuing to chase my tail, I would "just do it" and let myself be bad, amateur, and imperfect. There is a lot going on right now and we have no choice but to go with the flow, do the best we can, and vow to be imperfect. In the end, everything turns out ok anyway, doesn't it. What about you? Was there a time recently or not-so-recently where you just couldn't get around to doing something that you knew needed doing? How did you feel when you finally ate that frog? Here's to our bravery, to our imperfections. After all, if it means that much, we must be willing to fail. And then get up and keep going.
Sending love, Mary Kay
