#2. In Fear of Failure
I’m scared right now. I don’t know what I got myself into, but that doesn’t matter right now.
I’m writing this right now because I started this off of a gut reaction. I just went with the flow. It’s what I’ve always done, so I guess I have to go through with this now. While this is #2, I’m not writing this on the second day.
It hasn’t even been 5 minutes since I’ve written my introductory article. I wrote it, figured I should give myself a cushion. So, I’m writing this to you at about 1:00 in the morning, in fear of failure.
Tomorrow(which is really today, just after I go to bed), I have a big day ahead. I have to handle some business in the morning, start this in the day and go to a party at night. After that, I’m going to have to bounce back and wake up at like 6 in the morning the next day. So, here I am creating my cushion.
I’m glad I’m giving myself a cushion. It’s a logical option. I couldn’t live with myself if I made some big decision on the fly just to fail the next day. That would be ridiculous! I’m giving myself a few extra lives, just in case I die on the easy level.
With that, I think I’m ready. I’m ready to start something new. I’m ready to change my life. I’m ready to take the plunge, one step at a time. Look forward to your daily cup of jo… starting now.
