All too often I find my biggest roadblock…was/is me. I stop myself from doing and accomplishing the things that inspired me because I think too hard about it.
I worried too much what my parents would think or say, if it would ‘make enough money.’ I’ve held myself back many times only to be disappointed to ‘miss out.’ Only having taken the dive to quit a job at 24 and start a whole new career in the film industry did I start to teach myself to do what inspired me and really listen to those around me; most were loving, inspired with me and supportive.
Will there be road bumps along the way? Of course. Persevere. Keep going.
And was I terrified to start a new “business” as a counselor and minister? Do I still have days where I hold myself back? Absolutely! But I did it. With love and support. Road bumps along the way. Me, my biggest enemy, standing in my own way. But, I did it.
I can truly say I have three of my dream jobs. And it took me to get beyond my own roadblock, not give up, see the love and inspiration surrounding me within and outside of myself and continue to do and fight for what I really wanted to do.
Do you find you stand in your own way, also? You have it in you to be the best you. To be what you truly want to be. To do what you truly want to do.

Sometimes we just have to get passed ourselves.
Do I still have passions and things I really want to do that I stop myself from? Yes. I have art piling up as I fear ‘no one will like it.’ Despite the compliments and occasional purchase from others. Am I working on this? Yes.
You can, too. ☺️
