Good Morning Loves.
I’ve started or joined a few things this morning…
First, I’ve joined the Trust30 community that I was introduced to through a friend’s blog that I follow here…
#Trust30 is an online initiative and 30-day writing challenge that encourages you to look within and trust yourself. Use this as an opportunity to reflect on your now, and to create direction for your future. 30 prompts from inspiring thought-leaders will guide you on your writing journey. Sign up below to receive the prompts by email. If you like this pledge, check out reverb10, it’s inspiring.
Secondly…I’ve set up a BlogFrog Community. Check out the link on the right sidebar, it looks fun!
Now to Day 7 of #TRUST 30…
Day 7 #Trust 30 Writing Challenge
Dare to be bold …by Matt Cheuvront
Our arts, our occupations, our marriages, our religion, we have not
chosen, but society has chosen for us. We are parlour soldiers. We shun the
rugged battle of fate, where strength is born. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today, let’s take a step away from rational thought and dare to be bold.
What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to accomplish but have been afraid to
pursue? Write it down. Also write down the obstacles in your way of reaching
your goal. Finally, write down a tangible plan to overcome each obstacle.
The only thing left is to, you know, actually go make it happen. What are you

Welcome to “Fear of Success 101″
What is the one thing, BOLD thing, I have always wanted to accomplish, and been afraid to pursue????
Uhhhhh….becoming a REAL Writer…
My fears…not necessarily in this order…
1. am i good enough?
2. am i interesting enough?
3. what if I succeed????
It is the “what if” more than the “am I’s” that stops me in my tracks! If I succeed it would radically change my way of life. It would add to my vast list of responsibility. I might have to meet deadlines! I might have to meet people.
I Might be a SUCCESS!!!
Do I really want this????
For as long as I can remember I have wanted, no I was compelled to write. Put down on that crisp white, college ruled note paper (no such thing as PC’s when I began this dream) my life, my experiences, my thoughts, my fears and dreams…ALL of it…for ALL to read.
Can I really do this?
I blog, regularly, sans writers block. I write, or I should say, I have written for Helium.com for the most modest of incomes.
I have been complemented…my blogs and articles have STATS…
IF I AM HONEST…my only obsticle is myself…my FEAR that I would succeed. And OH! the unknown future that holds. I am afraid I must admit that on many a day that paralyzes me! And yet…I find that sad. How is it I can reassure a friend that they should BOLDLY pursue a dream, while simultaneously being frozen by my own???
A tangible plan to overcome this…fear…
Is already in motion.
I blog…I write…inspired by those I follow. Inspired by writing prompts like #Trust30…GypsyMama and others…
I write and chronicle and blog and journal and read and seek….
And one day….I will accept that I am a WRITER, not just profess it…
I WILL BE IT…I WILL BE A WRITER…
