I was catching up on my blog reading the other day and came across a quote about deciding if something is for you or not:
If you give something your all it will be pretty easy to see if it is for you or not. You’ll either love it or decide not to continue.
I’ve been going back and forth with a couple of opportunities in my life lately. Do I go ALL IN and work by butt off, or do I decide to let it go? I love the possibility that something I have a hold of right now could give me amazing opportunities in the future, I just have to work for it hard right this second. I need to ignore the doubts and hide my insecurities and jam that accelerator down to the floorboard. I love the possibility of what COULD BE, so I need to seize that feeling and work it until it happens. Positive thoughts now bring positive changes later, right?
The same could be said for blogging some days. Do I always feel like posting five days a week for going on five years (and almost 100 posts, yikes!)? Not really. Except I enjoy it more than I don’t, even when I’m writing for just me and not making much some months. Whenever I think about just stopping I can’t. Coming here means too much to me. Having a creative outlet and the community I’ve built is too wonderful to give up on.
I think it is telling what we will work for when we don’t get a lot in return (money wise), yet we keep pushing through. If I add in my time and what it takes to blog versus what I get in return, it isn’t much. Except I love it. It feeds my soul and it is all mine. It’s my place to be creative and write, where I give my all even if I don’t feel like it.
I want to do this for other opportunities, but the leap of faith that takes is daunting. To shed what scares me and hope for what could be.
I want to give it my all, be ALL IN, and see what comes.
