I’m acutely aware that it’s been over two months since I last communicated with you. In conventional textbook marketing terms, that would be seen as inexcusable. Sorry.
As I sat down at my desk to pen an apology and attempt to woo you over with some inspiring words around business and marketing and all that other gumpf, I was overwhelmed by fear.
So I thought stuff it. I’m just going to just share with you the absolute truth about how I feel right now.
You see, I’ve worked 24/7 over the last year to give birth to two babies and I’m wracked with fear that they’ll be ugly, that no one will love them like I do and that they’ll fail.
There I said it. Right now that’s simply how I feel.
(Excuse me while I have a little cry.)
Okay I’m back now. Two hours ago, I didn’t feel like this and in another two hours I probably won’t either. As Eckhart Tolle says ‘this too will pass.’ And it will.
Your fear serves a purpose. It is a motivator. Courage is the essential ingredient required to overcome it.
I hope that whatever baby you’re giving birth to, that you can embrace your fear, have a little cry (or a real big one) and find the courage to just do it anyway.
