A Whisper says:
Confront your doubts!
Believe not in failure.
Whenever I try to write myself off from my dream to be published, there are a hundred little voices telling me not to. Sometimes, I have this feeling of being in a middle of a tug of war where the rope is wound around my neck while two contending forces pull hard at each end to win the battle. 🙂
Choked or not, I believe it is a sure indication that I not destined to quitting. I have to get the rope untied and release myself from the hold: the doubts I referred to.
I guess blogging is a major reason I am still tapping keys in front of the computer. The drive is still strong and the push, you wonderful readers give me, provides enough confidence in me to continue what I started.
Validation is what I always strive for. That sounding board is important to weigh my options.
At the other end of the rope is the dark side. Those little voices are yours and I am rooting for you to win. 🙂
