So yeah. I could go on and on about what led up to this convo, but I won't. Mostly because I have so many convos I can't keep them all straight. Or maybe those are just the voices in my head. *wink*
But basically, Katie Anderson and I were talking. And exciting things are happening for both of us.
Katie: Are you nervous?
Me: *hysterical laughing* *furiously typing* Beyond. I'm terrified of this, that, and the other (I won't bore you with the details, but I typed much more than this, trust me.)
Katie: It's almost as if success is more terrifying than failure.
TEN SECONDS LATER, in PG, UT: Light bulb moment.
She nailed it. Nailed it.
Failure I can do. I can handle. I've been there, done that. It leaves a bitter taste in your mouth and your stomach doing these weird flippy things. But I can deal.
Success? Not so much.
Well, okay, there was that one time I won those 50 Jazz tickets. And I did graduate from college. I have a good job. I've been married to the same man for 13 years.
Okay, okay. I've succeeded at some things too. Funnily enough, it leaves this weird taste in your mouth and your stomach doing these weird flippy things. I guess I'll have to learn to deal.
And no, I have no news. Just curbing those comments right now. :)
So tell me, have you had a light bulb moment recently? What was it about? What do you think of the success being terrifying thing?
And PS: You want to sign up for my newsletter. I have some very VERY exciting things planned for February and newsletter subscribers will get the low-down before everyone else. Way before. In-enough-time-to-prepare-before. Just sayin'. And that's all I'm sayin'. *winkage*
