Today makes one year of me gaining enough confidence to become an author. This has been such an incredible journey in all areas of my life. There were a lot of things I had to confront to get here, including my past belief that I wasn’t creative.
I didn’t see myself as an artist, as a writer. I always wanted to be, but I didn’t think I had the ability to put out something people would be interested in. And now, I am an International Bestselling Author working on the third book in my series.
Every time I finish and publish a story, I look back at the girl who wanted this so badly, but was so terrified she wouldn’t be enough and say, “This is for you.”
I wanted to share that with you to encourage you to go after your dreams. You don’t have to wait until you’re not scared, you’ll always be a little scared, maybe even completely terrified, but don’t let fear get in the way of you putting effort into something you want. You never know how beautiful and wonderful it could all turn out, if you refuse to try.
