Sometimes we wanna do something we really wanna do.
Something we truly believe in.
Something we truly care about.
But sometimes things don’t go as we’d expect them to.
We wanna write that beautiful book – but don’t find the words.
We wanna pitch that amazing idea – but get a less than response.
We wanna launch that brilliant project – but we don’t know where to start.
And then we are tempted.
To quit the writing.
Ditch the idea.
Shelve the project.
After all, we seem to be the only ones struggling.
Reading those glorious posts on Facebook.
Hearing those amazing success stories over dinner.
Listening to those hyper “Oh, things are going so great!” at parties.
And then we are sure. It’s us – we’re the only ones struggling.
It was not meant to be.
It was just a crazy dream.
And a waste of time.
But know that struggles, erase and delete and start again, no’s and closed doors
are just as much part of the process as
the effortless writing, yes! responses and doors flung wide open.
They just don’t get as much airplay as the successes do.
They’re tuned down,
drowned in the silence of shame and doubt and fear.
Don’t let that silence, make you go silent.
Keep using your voice.
Keep telling your story.
Keep creating your dream.
