Welcome back to the 8th OLW blog Hop! It's hard to believe August has come to an end. My children start school in a few days and we go back to our normal routines. Normal is relative, but you know what I mean. We have been doing our last minute supply shopping and labeling everything.
This months OLW project was very simple. A photo. No writing. No creating. Easy, Peasy. Or so I thought. I almost didn't get the assignment done in time. Two days ago I decided I better get a photo of me. I took a couple of photos and hoped I liked one. I didn't have time to mess around too much.
That same day I was looking at my mail and went over to Designer Digitals to see the new free downloads. I was so happy when I saw the Type Inspiration. I knew this would be the words for my photo.
The saying that really spoke to me was "I believe in you". I realized the other day that I missed too many things in life because I was afraid. I didn't have enough faith in myself to put myself out there. Now that I've done some new things this year and faced those fears I'm feeling wonderful. I'm still afraid and I still get butterflies in my stomach but I'm also feeling free and inspired and proud. I believe in myself. Just saying those words starts a fire deep down that makes me push aside those fears and try my best.
Has your word taken you out of your comfort zone? If you don't have a word, what helps you over come your fears of the new and unknown?
