What am I scared about?
It's been 2 days since I joined WA. My website is created but I couldn't write a single blog. What am I scared about? I used to love reading books and writing narrative essays. Why am I stuck?
I admit, I have not read a book in a very long time. The last book I remember reading and finishing is I Do Again by Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs. That was about 4 years ago. I have a couple of books waiting to be read but "I have not found the time" . I watched a lot of movies, yeah, that's when I stopped reading. I have forgotten how it feels to be reading a good book until now, while I am writing this blog. Having no time is not an excuse. I actually have a lot of time, specially when my son goes to school. Reading books takes me to another world, it sharpens my imagination and gives me confidence.
Since I stopped reading, I also stopped writing. I still write a journal everyday, my most personal thoughts to Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord. But I know I can write anything and not be judged. Nobody else gets to read it. Well, that's it! I am scared to be judged, to fail, to offend, to make a mistake.
Fear will not get me anywhere. It's time to face it! I will definitely fail, make mistakes, offend and be judged but with God's guidance, I will become the person He wills me to be.
“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”
