I’m Not Afraid

If you’re not afraid of the voices inside you, you will not fear the critics outside you.

Natalie Goldberg – American author, speaker, and writing teacher

I’m too busy.
I shouldn’t be doing this.
Maybe everyone will think I’m a fool.

These are just a few of the negative things that I catch myself thinking when working on this blog.

I might not write well (at least for now).
And maybe this project will turn out to be one big waste of time.

But I’m not afraid of coming across like an idiot because I know that I’m much more than that.

I’m fair.
I’m open-minded.

I do my best to lead by example.
I try to encourage others to believe in themselves.

And I know my limits, and I know how to test them.

This is why I work on this blogging project.

To push beyond my limits.
To learn and grow.

And to turn this blog into something that will make a positive impact in this world.

This is why I say fuck off to the negative voices inside or outside of me.
