Turn Back The Clock — Let’s Blog Off

Today’s Let’s Blog Off topic is “If you could turn back time, what would you change?”  There’s only one thing that I would change, but it encompasses many different times and situations.

The only thing I would change is that I would do what scared me.  Since I started blogging, I’ve had many opportunities that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.  I was scared to start, not knowing what people would think, or if anyone would care about what I had to say, but it has been totally worth it. What I learned is that even if nobody else cares, I do and I’m becoming a better person because of it.

As a matter of fact, any time I actually followed through on something that scared me, I became better for it.  My main goal for this year is to recognize what is scary and then push through it to find the world beyond that fear.

What fear do you need to push through?

    Great question, Raun.
    In his terrific book, The War of Art, Steven Pressfield declares that “The Mother of All Fears is – Success.” I started a writing project several years ago – and tabled it. Maybe I didn’t want anyone to read it after all…

    Last November for NaNoWriMo (a 50K novel in one month) I completed a draft of that long forgotten project. I’m editing it now and am giving myself until April 1st to put it in the hands of others.

    Watch out Success, I’m coming for you.

    (Thanks for letting me commit that deadline publicly.)

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your project with us. The War of Art is on my long list of books to read, so thanks for the reminder. Now that your secret is out, we’re going to have to hold you do it. :)
