I really wish that I had more belief in myself. I've made what I think are some positive changes and identified that I love writing but I still can hear the little voice that says I'll never publish anything, never really do anything. I hope that I'm getting beyond that. I wish that I had conquered that. But I have not entirely done either of those things.
I just want to take on my role in life. I appreciate this quote:
"We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music." - Barbara Sher
I've been a doorstop.
Whatever music I can make, whether it be through writing or working with learning challenged children or helping the poor or listening to people or having fun promoting some organization, I want to make that music. I want to just play it.
It is time to emerge from behind the door.
And, I hope at least, to soar.
JAHD - Have a great weekend everyone!
