The time has come. Inspired by my son and members of my Twitter community, I'm taking the plunge. I'm writing my first Messy Tech blog post.
So many "What if..." questions running through my head. What if it's a flop? What if people make fun of me? What if no one reads it? But, funny how they are fear-based, not future based. One of my life mottos is "Live by what you trust, not by what you fear." It guides me in times of question, frustration, and decision making. How about these what if questions, Jill? What if you did what you love? What if you found your wings?
So here I am and I'll tell you why. Well, mostly I want to tell myself. In print. I am here to reflect, share, ponder, and get feedback. All are equally important, but none of those things can happen without reflection.
In my endeavors, I've at times been fretful: Am I spending my time wisely? Am I a fool to try and put myself out there? Am I good enough. Where I am going and how the hell I am going to get there when I don't properly have the end in mind? I decided to write myself a little note. It helped.
I mean, sure it did, cause here I am. Welcome along for the ride if you choose to join me. I really do want to reach out to others, learn together, ease some stress in others, and be a cheerleader for joy. Joy matters. Sanity matters. You matter
