I Did NOT Expect This

I’m sitting in my kitchen, my heart pounding ready to jump out of my chest. I didn’t expect this. I’m not sure exactly what is going on. It’s just a little video after all.

This morning, a little project I have been working on made it to completion and suddenly I got really anxious about it.

What if people didn’t like it?

Or even worse: if it left them cold?

I really poured my heart into this. And I suddenly realised this is like an artist must feel when they present a piece of their work to the world. A piece of themselves. It’s exciting. And gut wrenching. Scary.

Again, I didn’t expect this to happen. I don’t scare easily. I’m not usually afraid of feedback these days. So why is this happening to me?

I guess the answer is this, that despite all my ‘bravado’ I am human after all, and all I want at the end of the day is to be loved. Just like everyone else.

So here’s to the entrepreneurs, the courageous people who have made the jump and decided to create a better life for themselves, a life with more meaning. May you succeed in your endeavours.
