Press the Send Button: Scary and Freeing

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Scary moment of the day has passed. And at that freeing moment, comes a feeling of giddiness I hadn’t expected. The email has been sent. The invitation has been issued. The worst that can happen? Rejection. The best that can happen? Oh my goodness; I just can’t imagine.

scary blogI’ll wait to hear back and follow up with this person I’ve asked to be involved with a book project I’ve been working on for four years. Fingers crossed, eyes open, sending the best of thoughts out into the universe.

As Chris Brogan would (and did) say: “Stop learning. Stop waiting. Do. The. Damned. Project.”

Throwing caution to the wind, step in, step up, and go for it. Your story needs to be told.

  1. Congrats on hitting the send button, Deb. We never know what our actions will bring. Sometimes it is truly beyond our wildest imagination. It is always about taking the action and trusting that whatever happens, it is exactly what is supposed to happen at this point in time. Plant seeds and see which ones grow. All the best. Keep our heart and eyes open. And then watch what shows up! Look forward to hearing the results.
