I've come to the conclusion that life is confusing and decisions are hard to make. I'm sorry if I just blew your mind with this discovery. I'll hang on a second while you regroup. I read a quote the other day from Charles Bukowski that said "The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence." This quote may be a bit extreme, but I'd like to think I'm fairly intelligent, yes I have my dumb moments, but I certainly doubt myself and my ability more then I should. What am I afraid of? Failing? Well, if we don't try, we'll certainly never succeed. I read another quote, likely on Pinterest because that's where I waste the majority of my time, that said "Ability is nothing without opportunity". Okay you're probably wondering what I'm rambling on about at this point, but basically, I've taken some risk in the past, leaving the corporate world to pursue my passion as a CrossFit trainer and athlete, which has also given me more time to focus on my blog and nutrition which I'm extremely passionate about. But what else lies ahead for me? I have a lot of goals and things I'd like to accomplish, but how am I going to get there? Someone has given me the opportunity to turn my dreams into a reality, and I'd be silly not to take the risk and try. Am I worried I'm going to hurt someones feelings? Yes, that's just who I am. Does that mean I shouldn't do what I know is best for me? No. I'm going to take a leap of faith, I'm going to work hard, and I'm going to make it happen. I believe in myself, and I have people who believe in me. Playing it safe is dangerous, and in my opinion, if there's something you just can't stop thinking about, you need to go out and do it. Suck it up and get out there, you're worth all that you imagine. If you have the ability to do something great, and opportunity knocks on your door, you better be ready to take the reigns and roll. Stay positive, stay motivated, work hard, and as pancakes.
