I recently stepped out of my shell and did something "against the societal norm" - I asked a guy out on a date. It didn't lead to anything but I must say that I felt good for stepping up and putting myself out there. Of course after the moment of pride subsided, and I never heard back from him - the typical over analytical, think too much on every word I said, what could he be thinking, did I come off as a "groupie", OMG - what did I do, what is wrong with me - started to sink in.
Although all those questions were just crazy talk and fear - one thing that came up did stick with me - I asked myself: "What about me, would make him say yes?"
And I thought...and thought some more......and thought some more........
Yes, I am well traveled, cultured, smart, and my daddy calls me beautiful - but is that enough. I asked a man who I have seen turn dreams into reality - who has, successfully I might add, have a concept, create a platform, and execute a plan.
What have I done with my dreams, my goals, my plans?
My moment of pride - which turned into a smaller moment of self-pity, then turned itself into a kick in the pants moment; a take things of the back burner moment and light a fire once again under the dreams that I put on hold.
My dreams are in no way going to come to fruition overnight but I have one and it's about time to start making it a reality once again.
It's funny when you look back and see what got you back on track...for me, it was a weird moment of somewhat rejection. For you - hopefully it's just reading this post!
Whatever it is - Trust The Journey!
My dream - owning my own Hospitality Conglomerate - coming soon!
Your dream - coming soon too!!!!
