Here We Go

Ever try to write a mission statement? Do you do those? They make me shaky. I get all nervous. I have second thoughts, maybe this isn’t for me. Can’t we just try things out for a little while? See where it leads? You’d think I was talking about a serious dating relationship, but no. Just a paragraph.

Apparently I have commitment issues I need to address. (*clears throat*)

I have a string of failed business attempts, failed creative ideas, failed projects, and a few successes in my wake. It’s hard to look past what didn’t work and take any notice of what has. And the lessons I’ve learned! There’s some salvageable stuff out of that debris! But it’s still a messy pile. Everyone of those bright ideas, I threw my heart into. I knew, I just knew….This. Was. It.

Oh, look! Fail. Fail. Fail. Fail. Until finally….chicken out.

So, I’m a little hesitant to try again. But I can’t NOT try. For some reason, that flame, that drive just won’t go away. That’s why I’m here. My hope is that somewhere, something’s going to click. It’s going to grow wings and fly. But I want to record the journey- the good, the bad. I want to be able to look back and see where I’ve come from.

Then there’s you. I know I’m not the only one who sits surrounded by failures, and yet still quietly dreams that one day….it’s gonna happen. You’re not alone. And you’re not foolish for trying, again.

(deep breath)

Here we go.

    1. Sorry to stalk your posts. I just couldn’t stop- you’ve got some great posts! I hear you loud and clear on having a variety of topics. Blogging 101 is fantastic! It’s a 3 week course offered for free through WordPress. I believe I learned about it through their blog The Daily Post. Let me see if I can get a link for ya.

      1. Doesn’t everyone want their posts stalked? I used to contribute to a blog with my 5 sisters called I am transferring some of my posts from there as I add new posts. And I am trying to tackle the video blogging.
