I admit that I have moments that I waiver down this path that I'm attempting to walk. Creating a new business, trying to be a good role model for my kids, being an engaged (and engaging) wife and partner....but it can be hard, right?
Approved convention is safe, secure, and if you follow the "rules" you usually wind up making it through life without too many great and terrible catastrophes. However, safe and secure will not necessarily reward you with the most fulfilling, exciting, enlightening path. Life is a journey and is meant to be lived, loved, explored... sometimes you have to jump off the bridge and realize that part of the experience is the fear AND the exhilaration. Each day is a new leap, stepping out into the world and putting yourself out there, being evaluated and critiqued, and hopefully, someone loves what you've put out there as much as you do.
So, while cruising through the bazillion blogs that I read, I came across this post on "The Middle Finger Project." It's Jenny Foss' story about overcoming fear and convention in her own life. I really connected with this post and hope that you get something out of it too!
