Another post where I try to uplift myself while conveying a repetitious message to my readers.

[via pinterest] I kinda just want to curl up in bed right now and write/read/cry/sleep...

Sometimes I have a really hard time sitting myself down to write a post for my blog. There's a broad span of topics out there that my brain picks at random, and when I pick one to start writing about, I feel as though it's not good enough. My thoughts constantly say "someone could write this better" so I usually stop and push the writing away to be finished on another day.

Why do I do this to myself? I think it's because deep down, I'm afraid of what you guys will think. I'm afraid I'll write about something and it just won't live up to your standards - or even my own. I hate feeling as though I've failed someone, and I hate feeling as though I've failed myself, so I don't do anything. Which causes me to get stuck and feel like I've failed myself anyway. The whole ordeal is so confusing, yet its resolve is so simplistic.

I need to lower my expectations to a reasonable amount. I need to let go, be free. Be succulent (juicy) and wild. I don't need to care about what others think of me because they are themselves and I am uniquely me.

I am me.

No one else is going to be me.

So I may as well embrace it.

Thank you for reading this confusing post.
