LET NOTHING STOP YOU
On any given day, I spend about 75% of it worrying. That's 18 hours of everyday and 45 minutes of every hour.
I'm a natural worrier. I can't even think of a time when I wasn't worried about at least five things. Usually, it's more like 15-20. I once did an exercise where I wrote down every single thing I was worried about in that moment. I wrote down 30+ things. Everything from money concerns to health to random catastrophes that are highly unlikely. Ya. Crazy stuff like that.
I also worry about what people will think. When I publish this blog post, will people hate it? Will they even see it? When I go meet a new person for coffee, will I accidentally choke on my croissant or bore them to death with my design nerdiness? When I send this proposal, will they laugh in my face via email and tell me I'm a hack who should just go hide under a rock?
But, and this is the MOST important part. I don't let any of these thoughts stop me. Do I want to sometimes? HELL YA! But I refuse. I recognize the worry, and then I just keep going. This is not easy, but it's so worth it.
