Insecurity: I don’t have the time or energy for you. You may have ruled my teen years and most of my 20’s, but there’s a new sheriff in town!
Fear of failure: there are worse things than failing. For example, never even TRYING. I am looking forward to failing SPECTACULARLY at something I love. BRING IT ON! If nothing else, it will make for interesting blog posts.
Worry: experts (me) say that worry leads to chronic idiopathic diarrhea.
The Haters: if someone ain’t hatin’, then you’re not doing something right. Don’t you worry, hater tots! I came armed with plenty of ketchup. Nom nom! Deelish! I eat hater tots for breakfast.
Old dreams: some things need to die off to make room for new things. Don’t grieve it too long, or you’ll miss out on the blessings happening right in front of you. I am learning this the hard way. Please learn from my pain! Open your eyes and find the beauty in the things you are in the middle of.
Housework: it might get done today, it might not. I enjoy having a clean house but is someone going to DIE if I don’t fold that load of laundry right this moment? Probably not. It’s ok to cut yourself some slack. Relax. Deep breath. (Note to ladies: If you want help, ask for it. Your man can’t read your mind.)
Hesitation: what are you waiting for? Stop waiting for certain people to believe in you. Not everyone is going to get you. Be bold. Step out. Give God a chance to show you what He can do when you have a willing heart, pure motives and a good attitude.
Ok. Enough of my soap box for today.
