I'm hungry now. I'm not hungry for food. I just had a little snack so I'm fine that way. Thank you for your concern though. No, I'm hungry for life. I'm hungry for doing what I want to do regardless of, well, regardless. It is time to move forward. Finally.
I'm not sure how to deal with the fact that I have wasted time and lots of it. You don't get that back. But maybe it helps you use time better in the future.
I am grateful to have wonderful people in my life who offer encouraging words. They believe in me. We all need that. I'm starting to believe in myself too. And not beat myself up about things. My confidence is, well, coming along. The seeds have sprouted.
I see no benefit to hiding our abilities. The world needs what we have to offer. And we need to offer it, we need to express ourselves and our talents. To quote Marianne Williamson:
"Your playing small does not serve the world." (see below)
We all have so many wonderful talents and interests and potential. When we unleash them, we can do amazing things.
