Putting Yourself Out There

I’ve been thinking a lot about how brave it is when we ‘put ourself out there.’ Maybe it’s sharing your art on social media, going for a job interview you didn’t get, facing a fear, or learning something new. No matter what it looks like . . . it’s brave, healthy, and promotes amazing growth.

Sometimes things may not go as we planned when we allow ourselves to be vunerable, but other times, we grow, connect, and advance. Just know that no matter what, there is value in the journey, even if it didn’t turn out the way you expected.

There is no one stopping you from putting yourself out there, except you. Don’t hold back, take that risk. You will be one step closer to some dreams or goals or better well being.

I’m reminded . . .

Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something. – Fredrick Smith
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. – EE Cummings
Say yes and you’ll figure it out afterwards. – Tina Fey
