I recently signed up for the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) for January. The challenge is to post something every day and there are helpful prompts to use if needed. Well I have a few ideas rolling around in my head but decided to go with today's prompt.
What is the hardest part about a beginning?
I love new beginnings. I get excited about change and mixing things up in my life. But I also start to worry about the end before the beginning is even over with. I worry about how long it’s going to take me to fail. How long will I stick with it (whatever IT may be) this time? What will so-and-so think if I do this?
I also tend to over analyze things. I get wrapped up in the planning and prep of starting something new that by the time I actually start whatever it is I’ve already convinced myself it’s impossible or too much trouble.
I function best by just jumping in to something and not worrying about all the details. It’s hard for me to do that but it is something I’ve been striving for the past year or so with success. I have become less afraid to try new things because I don’t worry about all the downfalls or what someone will think. I try to just go for it.
