…again, over, or at all.
Everything you need is within you. To do whatever it is you need to do, want to do, dream of one day considering to start to do. At every turn, the world wants to have your back. Just do it, they say. Seize the day, they say. Do it for yourself, they say–an overused sentiment in the context of quick affect and insta-worthy mood boosts–but truly, the heart the of the matter–do it for your SELF.
Some part of you–the inner child, the visionary adult, the you that comes out to breathe when no one is looking–is craving this venture, this next step. It wants it for you, and to deny yourself the opportunity to express this need and give your vision an honest shot is censorship. It is lying by omission. It is telling yourself, “My reasons- (which, are for others’ sake, by the way. You know what you want to do)-matter more to me than the essence of who I am, than my individual and unique self’s perception of and response to my time in this world.”
You are worthy. Of your dream. Of your own positive opinion. Of the courage to try. You are enough.
So breathe life into that neglected part of yourself, and begin. Anew, once again, or just for the first time. That part is up to you.
