My New Year Resolution is a Word!
Simply -the freedom to be me, knowing I will be fine, no matter the outcome! Why did I chose a French word? Because, I chose words that best reveal my thought, in not only the meaning -but the feel!
I have chosen the one word I wish to describe my year, in 2016. Freedom! Freedom to walk this path without fear of failure, rejection, or success! I have spent a lifetime hiding myself from others -afraid I wasn’t good enough. What was I thinking?
I don’t have to be “good enough,” I just have to be me. Will anyone read my book? Will they like it? Am I a good writer? Will they like me? Will people reject my book because of the cost? Will people have enough faith to read, even if they don’t know me? Will I be okay, if it gets read, but no one likes it?
My life will cease being about the “Am I’s.” I will step forward (the word I almost chose), and believe I am “good enough.” It doesn’t mean you will like my books, or you will even read them, but I will now have the “freedom,” to believe in myself -no matter, the outcome!
I will not hold myself back from success, only to fail before I’ve begun. I will no longer cast glances of doubt, when no one has even looked my way. I am, I think…”good enough.”
