February is here, which means its time to face another fear.
As you know, I am up to my armpits in trying to get rid of 25% of my personal belongings even though I am pretty freaked out that I may need all this stuff I am giving away and selling. The Year of Fear isn’t supposed to be comfortable, it is supposed to help me stretch, grow, and lead more areas of my life.
Despite getting rid of 31 books, three huge garbage bags of clothes, 14 pairs of shoes, and some random knickknacks, and emptying out four kitchen cupboards, I still have a long way to go.
Nonetheless conquering the world in Stage Two can commence as I continue to huck stuff out that I don’t use or need…the yarn stash is next.
February is about saying what I want.
Putting myself out in public where I have the potential to be criticized is painful.
When I ‘grow up’ I want to be successful author and speaker. I want to help girls understand how amazing they are and that they were made on purpose for a purpose.
I literally cringed as I typed out that sentence.
Telling people about my most heartfelt dream makes me want to throw up more than just a little bit. Everyone has these kinds of dreams – I know I am not alone.
It is time to stop cringing and start moving it forward.
In February I commit to taking two giant steps forward in helping me get what I want; even though I want to hide under my desk when I think about it.
- Find 6 groups that would be willing to have me come speak to high school girls about leadership, purpose, and self esteem.
- Work on my second humorous ebook, Womanity, for at least 45 minutes a day with the goal of finishing draft one by February 28.
Stay tuned, I will post the introduction to Womanity in the next day or so.
- Oh the joys of accountability!
