Today's Thoughts...

Whatcha So Scared For?

I recently did one of those polls on Facebook.  In fact, a big shout out to all 36 votes who scrolled through and decided to cast their vote.  I always love to hear from people I do not get to see very often and I love to meet people who share interests with me.

When I posted it I didn't realize what it would show me until today.

I made that poll on 1-18.
I shared it in 11 groups.
My reach just for my page was 415 views.
+ 21 views more when I shared it again on the twentieth.

Out of all the views, what reason did you not answer it?
I am going to make another poll if you want to get in on some action.

I think that we are all constantly seeking for something but we cannot find IT.  We scroll through our feeds, go to work, cook dinner, and go about our lives but there is something that just leaves this empty hole inside. 

I have personally been seeking IT out for a great deal of time.  I have tried so many different professions it is not even funny.  There were some I was really great at and others that I was not so great at.  I think that we get stuck thinking that we have to find it by a certain time or by these conditions we believe.  Now that I am in my thirties, I am like "why do I not know what IT is?"

I know that I am not alone.
I know there are people way older than me.
I will listen to your stories, and I will learn from your mistakes.
Just tell me what they are. 

Then that is when it hit me.







YOU DO NOT WANT ME TO JUDGE YOU.

You are scared what they will say.
You are scared they will think differently of you.
You are scared that you will lose something whether it be mentally, physically, emotionally, or even financially.
I think we all start out scared.  If you cannot let go of what YOU THINK they think you will be so much happier.

The 36 people either knew I wouldn't judge them, or they didn't care if I did.  I don't care what you put on my poll.  I was just seeing what it would do.  That's the truth.  Why?  I wanted to hear what other people had to say but no one responded to any of my questions. 

The 36 people had what the other 415+21 people didn't, courage.  Many may not agree with you, and that is okay too.  It is not your job to make, it is only your job to show.  Leading by example is one of the best ways to show someone something.

Don't be scared of what you think people think of you.  It is likely not as many people think about you as think.  Do you think any of those 436 people who didn't answer thought before they went to bed about me?
LIKELY NOT!





BIG POINTS ON THE SNOW DAY!!!
Do something that will make you happy.
Try to let go of other people's opinions about anything.
Have the courage to do whatever it is that makes you happy.
Be what you want to see in the world.
