I can’t remember who said that sometimes, you just have to jump in the pool and see what happens. But I think it’s true.
Life is short, right, and sometimes you can’t sit forever and (over-)analyze things and worry about what will happen. The thing is, you never know what will happen unless you actually try. It can then either be the greatest thing you’ve ever done or a huge failure. But there’s no way of knowing if you never put it out there and give it a go. The “it” being whatever you’re occupied with at any given time and worried about doing or not doing…it’s different for everyone, but I think that the metaphor works out in general for all of us.
This is something that I’ve been struggling with (and still am from time to time). There’s obviously a whole train of thought behind this struggle, but now I’m at the point where I just want to let go and jump in the pool.
I started with having serious issues about whether or not I should post this blog on my personal Facebook profile. I went back and forth for the longest time and then I finally did it…and it was no big deal. It turned out to be such a small deal, really, that it’s almost embarrassing that I was even worried about it.
So lately, I’ve been debating whether or not to revive my blog’s Facebook page and start sharing my posts there in order to potentially reach a broader audience.
Back and forth…
Back and forth…
And then I realize that sometimes you just have to jump in the pool and see what happens.
So, here I go.
