Anyone else ever feel unqualified?
This week, I’ve been reevaluating the coming months and considering some new ventures for myself professionally. But with each and every avenue I consider, my fear wants to disqualify me from the race before I never even start.
“I have no experience with that.”
“I’ve been out of the game too long.”
“I have been cleaning up Hot Wheels and wiping hineys for the last seven years.”
“Everything I want to say has already been said.”
No matter how I phrase it, when I break down all the excuses and dig deeper into all my rationales for not even trying, it all boils down to fear.
I talk myself out of things before I even give them a shot.
Have you been there? I’m mostly preaching to myself here, but it’s ALL A LIE, y’all.
Everyone has a first day.
So, I’m calling today day one.
I shifted my old blog to a new format, learned the hard way that there’s another Allison Ezell out there who owns the domain I wanted for her makeup business , and revamped the look of where I landed. I don’t know where it’ll go, but God has really pushed me to write lately, so that’s where I landed on day one – relaunching a writing space.
My prayer is that God helps me use this space to encourage women to be part of something bigger than themselves and to step into their gifts. Don’t ask me long-term plans, but I’m in for as long as He asks me to use it.
Thanks so much for being here.
