This weeks video is about fear. Check it out!
I am in the process of writing a book! It’s due out Summer of 2014. I have a few people other than my mother and husband reading it, and I’m feeling vulnerable and afraid. But I also feel FANTASTIC! I’m outside of my comfort zone doing something I never thought I would do. I’m starting a new chapter in my life (no pun intended) and a new door is soon to open for me.
So, how am I doing this?
First, I remain confident. When the little gremlin pops up and says, “you don’t know what you’re talking about. Who do you think you are for attempting this?” I turn her off. I don’t know unless I try! I have a message that I really want to share.
Second, I have support that keeps pushing me forward. I talk about my fear to them, they listen, and keeping saying, “who knows what will happen! That’s the exciting part. Just enjoy the experience.’
Third, I have the urge to help. I believe Working Moms needs more support. I don’t want them to feel alone in their struggles and challenges. I want to be one of the voices out there cheering them on and I know this book will help.
Last, I keep motivation all around me. There is a piece of paper on my bookcase that reads:
Write women write!
Stop feeling scared.
Done is better than perfect.
When I feel anything except happiness about my book, I stare at this piece of paper & then at the picture of my husband whose been the best supporter of my efforts.
