Salve my loves! That’s just a little Latin love to start your week off right. You’re welcome.
Hopefully everyone had an amazing weekend. I know I did. However, even with all of the fun I had with friends and family these past two days, I have had the most intense nervous feeling looming over me. I know why (and if all goes well, you will eventually too), but not being able to shake this feeling has really gotten to me. So, when I was doing my weekly Sunday scroll through Pinterest and saw this quote, it immediately sparked some inspiration for this week’s Motivational Monday.
I am not a nervous person by nature. In fact, if you ever see me blush or sense that I am on edge – you know whatever it is has made quite the impression. Sure, I have faced some common nerves throughout my life (i.e. speaking in front of people, tripping in public, saying the wrong thing to the right guy), but honestly as I have gotten older the nervous emotion has made less pit stops to my body. I have always considered myself lucky in this department of life. This is especially true when it comes to meeting people. Not being shy or nervous to converse with others has helped me build some incredible relationships both personally and professionally.
So it is this uncomfortable feeling that I don’t normally deal with that has me so wound up. The funny thing with nerves though, is that they are not always something you can control, but they are something you can defeat. My nerves in particular are related to some opportunities that are peaking into my future right now. I have been holding back on trying to take advantage of these opportunities and after taking the plunge this past week, I really do see what trying can do for you. Even though certain things in life can make you feel worrisome, or nervous, or even place you outside of your comfort zone, I promise you they are worth a shot. If I had not tried to put myself out there this past week, I would not be working towards bettering myself and my career. These are important things. So live on the edge a little and try something new, something exciting, and something a little risky this week. Hey, you might actually accomplish that very something you were trying for!Pin It
