There are alot of things that I have been doing lately which I never thought I would have done but this single step really brings me out of my comfort zone.
For the longest time, blogging has always been something which I have done anonymously. I have never met any of my readers or met up with any of those from the online community.
Today, I took the first step and met someone from CPF regarding the possibility of me contributing as a guest blogger at IM$avvy. It was a scary thought for me as this was the first time I was actually meeting someone regarding my blog.
The feeling was actually like me going for a job interview except that the interviewer had lots of personal information about me!
Most of you will know that I feel that this blog is certainly not like a masterpiece. I would actually be embarrassed to showcase it to anyone. Afterall, my writing has at best been incoherent and at its worst, totally incomprehensible. I don't spend much time editing my work so it is really not amazing that I feel inadequate.
Yet, I came across this quote recently that really inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and to embrace myself for who I really am. I share with all of you this quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
Well, I am glad that I actually took this step out of my comfort zone.
