I did something really kind of scary today. Something that I never even thought I would ever have the opportunity to do, but because of one good friend, I did have that opportunity. I shared what I was doing with a select group of friends and even though I was questioning taking action, every time I shared it with someone, they told me I should definitely make a move even before I could share my fears with them. That my friends’ confidence in me is that strong and that unwavering pushed me past the doubts that I had.

It’s been a stressful week that has included a lot of excitement and a lot of hard work. The thing though, is that never did I feel like I wouldn’t be able to accomplish the task in front of me. I knew what I needed to do and I just kept working through the stress. It’s similar to when I was in school full time. I never gave myself credit for what I did then. I worked full time and took a full load of classes and was proud of everything I turned in. Oh, and I was on a championship dodgeball team too!

Sure, there were people who did a lot more than I did, but that’s not what this is about. This week I met every challenge placed before me and I’m proud of having done it.

Look out, because I’m planning on doing more. I like this feeling and I intend to give myself more instances for this totally justified pride.

Bring on the frightening goals. Bring on the things I’ve never done before. Bring whatever you’ve got, because no matter it what it is, I’m coming for it and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to take it down.
