When you make the decision to express yourself you’re on the journey.
It feels like you’re jumping off the edge of a cliff, reaching for a small rope that will carry you to the other side.
You think you know where you’re going.
You think you’re not good enough,smart enough, or don’t deserve to get where you want to go.
Lies. All Lies.
The journey isn’t about learning to be something you are not.
The journey is about accepting who you already are and doing the things you want to do.
The first step on the journey is the scariest because you are declaring to the world who you are.
I am a writer.
I am an artist.
I am smart.
I am healthy.
I am a father.
I am a mother.
I am me.
The first step you take, you become what you are. Don’t criticize yourself because you’re not your idealized version of yourself. Just take another step and try to have a little fun.
The journey is challenging.
The journey is fun.
The journey can go into uncharted territory.
They journey can be on the beaten path.
The journey has stops.
The journey has starts.
The journey can change destinations.
The journey is experience.
Experience is life.
We are all on the journey. You never know where someone else is on their journey so be kind to each other. And lend a hand whenever you can, you’ll need one yourself some day.
