make something.


so often, i find myself in a state of limbo.
wanting to do something,
thinking of doing something,
dreaming of doing something.
but, almost just as often, i stop myself.
worrying about the tiniest of details.
worrying that what i create,
what i write,
what i try...
won't be perfect.
so, then what happens?
nothing is created.
nothing is written.
nothing is tried.
and, i find: 
that state of limbo is worse
than failure.
so, this is a project i challenge myself with:
create.
write.
try.
without fear.

I hear ya. I do the same thing. Sometimes you need to just stop thinking and start doing.

I agree whole-heartedly with this!!! I've learned that once I put aside my fear of failure, I've been able to accomplish so many amazing things!
