This is my second go round at blogging.
The first time, I failed, miserably.
I went crashing to the ground so quickly, no one noticed but me.
There was so much pressure- too much in fact, for me to handle.
Pressure to connect to the readers I didn’t yet have.
Pressure to write something worth reading.
Pressure to write!
Pressure to maximize my online impact with as few words as possible. (I can be long winded)
Pressure to be extra careful not to expose too many feelings & seem too sensitive.
You get it; there was quite a bit of, well… pressure.
Yet, here I am again with that same feeling gnawing at my heels, but this time, its bite isn’t so (((harsh))).
I learned from my past experiences that the overbearing weight of pressure I felt & feel comes from within.
* NOTE: This is my second write up. I scrapped the first one after my deadline to post had passed-
I’m Sorry Kenya. : )
But this is me and possibly, it’s you.
An over thinking, perfectionist introvert whose best is never good enough- TO YOU.
We are overthinking, perfectionist beings who are hiding in dark corners, staring anxiously at our computer screens, and wishing we could perfect our craft before we strut our stuff.
We are our own worst critics in nearly everything we do, and it’s an internal issue.
There are no complaints from anyone outside of us about our work, because we don’t put ourselves out there until we’ve reached perfection. And since we’ll never reach true perfection, we never put ourselves out there.
Do you recognize this cycle?
We over thinking, perfectionist, and introverted beings are hiding in dark corners, staring anxiously at our computer screens, and wishing we could perfect our craft before we strut our stuff.
Fellow Introvert, This must stop!There's no monsters in the dark; only introverts whose thoughts project an illusion of protection… Click To Tweet
There is so much beauty, light, and positivity radiating from each of us, that if we would just step out of the shadows, we could ignite a flame of passion for life so strong and so bright, we would create an unstoppable wildfire of change. One so powerful, we could make flowers bloom when we walk by, dissipate shrouds of negativity with a wave of our hand, and heal wounded souls with one glance.
That was a bit dramatic, sure, but my fellow introverts, we have something special.
It’s time we show the world what magic truly is.
Say hello below and feel free to let me know what it is that you’re hesitant to put out there for us all to see.
I am willing to bet, it’s brilliant.
There are no monsters in the dark; only introverts whose thoughts project a frightening illusion to protect our sensitive souls & our delicate hearts.
