The year isn’t quite over but I can already sum up my experience: 2014 has been a year of transitions.
I’ve gone through several necessary – and scary – changes. I’ve stepped out of the money-saving comfort and camaraderie of roommates and shared space and into the eye-opening, budget-busting, living-on-my-own phase of life.
I’ve realized that I can’t depend on anyone other than myself to make shit happen and create the life I want. I’ve started my fight of muting the self-doubt that seems to find its way into almost every area of my life.
And, most importantly, I’ve started staring fear in the face and dealing with it, rather than cowering in a corner and letting it disable me.
Creating this blog was like pulling teeth. I mulled over it for a while, even sharing the idea with a few of my loved ones, but I couldn’t gather the gall I needed to just … DO IT.
Starting something new is easy to discuss but hard to get done. I’ve learned, forgotten and re-learned this truth over the past several months. If you’re Type A like me, you probably wholeheartedly believe you need to have some elaborate plan in place before you can take the first step on a new project. But that’s not always necessary – sometimes you just have to act.
Not everything has to be flawless the first time out; there’s always room for improvement. It’s your time and efforts on which you’re operating, so it’s fine to make it up and tweak it as you go.
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself these days.
Welcome to Crissi Untangled. This is me just doing something.
