I did it!  I finally bit the bullet and created a blog.  I’ve been wanting to start a blog for years, but I allowed the fears and negative self talk to over power my dream.  For too long I’ve allowed my fears decide for me what I couldn’t do.  But that’s it. I’ve decided to take a step back and look at the big picture.  

Instead of telling myself I couldn’t blog because I’m not a writer, because I have nothing to say, because if anyone does read my blog all I’ll see are negative comments… I now counter those thoughts with positive and uplifting mantras. No more agreeing with my fears and giving up before even starting. 

I tell myself I am a writer because anyone can be writer.  I must at least try and see what happens.  There may be bumps along the way, but I can use those experiences to improve my skills. I tell myself I do have something to say and what I have to say issmart, valid, and important.  I tell myself I can’t control the thoughts of others, so there’s no point in worrying.  I’ve made the commitment to focus on what’spositive. My glass is half full.  So here goes… my first blog post!
