Sticking My Toe In
I've been thinking a lot about my career lately, and where I want to go with it.
Several years ago I took a deep breath and made the plunge into life as a legal eagle. But for a while now I've been bobbing up and down in the water, staying near the shore.
I'm afraid of the future. And insecure about my own abilities. I always have been.
But the knowledge has slowly dawned upon me, as certain as it can be, that I need to cast my insecurities aside. I need to grow up and be unafraid. I have all of the skills I need to survive in the shark-infested waters.
So I've decided that I need to start swimming straight out, and not worry so much about the future.
I have nothing to fear but fear itself. If I boldly force myself to go out there, wonderful things could happen.
At the very worst, if I falter on the way out, that boat on the edge of the horizon might rescue me. #
