I came upon this quote, and it compelled me to write. It has been a while since I’ve written and that’s something I need to do a better job of. I find a lot of hope and strength in things I read and feel a sense of comfort when I write and can get my thoughts out. This gave me a little more hope because sometimes I feel a bit discouraged when things don’t always go the way I think they should or in the timeline I think they should go. I have felt like I have always had to work a little bit harder for things and taken a little bit longer than some to get what I want. Things haven’t always been easy for me or come easy to me. I take a lot of pride in myself, in my work and in my relationships with others. I’m a bit of a dreamer and not afraid of having goals and dreams or being outside my comfort zone. They say life begins outside your comfort zone, and I was reminded of that today. Sometimes I can’t believe I did it. It took a lot of courage, guts, and bravery but I did it. Two years ago. Happy Anniversary Tennessee! I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made in my life. Do I sometimes struggle and feel a bit lonely? Yes. I think that moving during the pandemic helped in the sense that I’m more content being at home where before I was constantly on the go. I am ok with being by myself, well not all by myself as I have Seymour Wiener Dog who is my constant companion by my side. I’m thankful he’s here with me. I also believe that it’s ok to try something new. If you don’t try you may always wonder what if; a would’ve, could’ve, should’ve moment. If you try something and it doesn’t work out it doesn’t mean you have necessarily failed. I think it’s better to put yourself out there in the hopes that it will all work out instead of sitting back and never going for it. What do you have to lose?
The only way to fail is to give up.
Failure is in not trying at all.
Setbacks are just temporary.
I think what I’m really trying to say is don’t sell yourself short. All you need to do is take that first step. You can do whatever you put your mind to. Trust me. Been there, done that. You can too.
