As part of the Praxis curriculum, I will be blogging every day for the rest of the month. This module will surely challenge and hopefully strengthen my writing abilities. And yet, the thought of publishing my work every single day is intimidating. It’s much easier to say that I write, but only share it with a few close individuals.
It is difficult to set aside time, type the words, and resist the doubt that creeps into my mind. I slowly learning how to quell that voice, shrug off the feeling of not being “good enough,” when I’ve barely begun.
When I was thinking about what to write for my first post of the month, and how to describe the nervous excitement I’m feeling, one quotation came to mind. It inspired the title of this post:
“There is no such thing as ready. There is only now.
And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.”
— Hugh Laurie
Over the past year I have continually challenged myself to act even when — especially when — I was uncertain of my own abilities. Before my trip to Europe I thought I wouldn’t last more than a few months. I managed to travel for six. That’s still surreal.
I continue to remind myself that every single day, there is no wrong way to do this*.
(* blog, educational/vocational path, life, etc.)
I’m still learning and discerning who I am as an individual. It’s natural for my digital presence to reflect that. So why not go for it?
If any of this resonates with you, feel free to get in touch. I’d love to hear your story.
