Hello one and all!
Recently I’ve been thinking about this blog, my life, my job, and numerous other aspects of my world. I do a lot of thinking and planning, but very few of those plans turn into actions.
Take this blog, for instance. When I first took up the mantle of Miss Hued, I intended to create a Youtube channel. I made one awful video that accomplished nothing other than getting me into the absolute basics of video editing, and then I stopped. It was several months before I chose to start this blog instead, and almost a year before I started posting regularly. The central theme has changed, and my posts have turned out much more serious than I ever intended. As a result, I’ve been thinking of taking the lighter aspects (such as the more artistic ideas) and doing a separate Youtube channel as I had originally intended almost two years ago. I sat for a few hours and brainstormed two weeks ago, and haven’t touched the idea since!
I’m always so focused on what I want to accomplish or how I want to accomplish it that I never actually sit down and turn my goals into realities. Some of it comes down to time and energy, but a lot of it comes down to fear. If I never try, I can’t fail; which is nonsensical, because not trying means that I have already assumed my failure!
I know I need to take a look at my life and my priorities, and really make an actionable plan that I can start instead of rewriting without doing anything else. My life is about to change beyond my imagination, and I know that’s been a huge stopping point for me, but the introduction of one element doesn’t make all the others disappear. Will I fail to stick to whatever plan I create? Yes, almost definitely; however, if I learn from those failures and keep striving to do my best, then perhaps I will still succeed in the end. If I do nothing, there is no chance of success, and I remain chained by my own emotions.
What’s holding you back?
As always, much love!
