Playing Hide and Seek.
"Write a blog post."
This is a perpetual line item in my e-calendar, which I have moved from month to month, week to week over the past few years. Never truly getting to it, I just kept moving it forward. "Next week," I said, "Next week, I shall write a blog post."
I didn't write the blog post. I kept moving it forward.
There is nothing else I moved forward. JUST the writing of the blog post.
I chalked it up to being a business owner. All the things to do, you know!
But that, my friend, is a total cop-out.
It wasn't my entrepreneurial lifestyle that prevented me from writing my posts.
It was that I was afraid of being seen.
Scheduling clients, drafting contracts, editing photos - that is the easy work. Sure, it takes time, and energy, and some good steady brainpower to do these things. But these latter things? They are pretty low on that scary vulnerability scale.
It's in my writing - sharing who I am, what I believe in, and what I've experienced - that I am required to step up and out of the box.
Funny, hey? I'll help you get out of the box, but getting out of mine? I'll schedule that for next week. ;)
So here I am, showing up.
Let's see what happens.
No more hide and seek.
