there are moments in my life (ok, i’ll be honest…more like every-other-day) where i find myself coming down with a severe case of avoidance — which most often directly stems from another nastier illness: fear of failure.
i can reason with myself till the cows come home about the importance of “taking a leap” or “diving headfirst with your eyes closed,” yet i can never quite manage to make it to the edge of the cliff. and yes, i’ve got that whole “eyes not quite closed” thing down pat. i am ridiculously afraid of failure…so much so that i often avoid doing something in order to avoid what i predict will ultimately end in failure.
that didn’t make sense, did it? in short, there are two key words: avoidance & failure. those two words stink. and it’s about time to make a serious effort at removing their stinch from my life.
how exactly? mmm, i haven’t quite gotten that far yet, though i’m sure a list of goals will somehow be involved — i do love a post-it.
so watch out all you cliffs, this fumbling fool with her eyes squeazed tight is coming for you….prepare yourselves for one heck-of a swan dive.
