I’m Stuck

I have four drafts started for four different posts and no inspiration to finish any of them. I  found my tripod and learned how to do timer photos with my camera, but have no taken a single OOTD picture. I’ve picked out a million cool outfits in my head, but have yet to wear any of them. I’ve started three business models and not finished a single one. I’M STUCK!!!

I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out why I am so resistant to finishing anything right now - especially since it’s things that I’m supposedly super excited about starting. Finally, while I was wide awake at 3:30 am this morning, it came to me: FEAR.

I’m really freaking scared of changing and putting myself out there. I’m scared of putting my outfits out there, my opinions on style and plus size fashion, my desire to start a business, heck even my opinion on nail polish. I’ve gotten myself worked into a tizzy (as my mom says) over the unknown and the new and foreign. These are things I so want to do, yet I can’t bring myself to actually do them because I’m scared of sucking at it. I’m scared my outfit pictures will be awful, I’m scared people won’t like what I have to say, and I’m scared people will laugh at me as a business owner. Just plain scared.

So I turn to you, my friends and readers, for some honest feedback. Have you ever been afraid to take the leap and try something new? How did you deal with the fear????
