Fear // Thrifted Ethical Fashion

I have avoided writing a post for a while. It is true that I’m busy, but it’s not that I didn’t have time to write at least one post a week. The truth is I’ve avoided writing because I’m afraid. I’m afraid of failure. I have this vision of who I want to be and what I want to succeed, and the reality is I’m far from it. I’ve envisioned to have already started my career as someone who advocates for holistic health as a nurse and as a well-known blogger.

i am still far from being what I want to be. and that makes me afraid.

I’ve envisioned living in my own space in a beautiful part of the country with my significant other or by myself. I remember when I was in high school I believed that by this age, 24, I’d have all that by now. Even if I didn’t have my own space yet, I’d be just as satisfied. I’m frustrated because I work so hard for something, and nothing comes to fruition. I’m afraid that no matter what I do, nothing will come of it. I wonder will the universe give me my “big break”?

everything will work out. the universe is perfect and there are no failures.

I’d like to believe in this. I so badly do. But, that fear creeps back from the words of others’ mouths. I was once told that I have yet to accomplish helping women.  I know they had only said it to hurt me, but it wasn’t a lie. And, this fear rose up inside me that I never will. I held this person with high-esteem; what they told me, broke me. They had no faith in me, so I had no faith in myself.

I’d like to take back my power. I’d like to say, “screw you” to anyone who thinks this way about me. I know from Liam Tinker that I need to “make [my] dream more important than [my] fear.” I know I need to “nurture it” and give that thought “attention.”

blog post about fear and following my dreams

So, that’s what I’m doing now. My dream is to become a successful blogger who can share my thoughts and use my life to help other women become their best self. And, I’ll
feed this dream by spending time actually writing and posting this. I hope that somewhere in this, I’ve been able to help you realize that it’s time to push aside your fear and dive in to make our dreams a reality.
