Flipping through the pages of Collective magazine, I found this quote from E.E. Cummings. It resonated with me.
"It takes courage to grow up & become who you really are"
Growing up is scary. I've had two junior level jobs now, and for a long time I was afraid to go any higher because I didn't believe in myself and didn't think that I was smart enough (good enough at my job etc.) to move any higher to challenge myself.
For a while now I have been considering further study and specialising in my field. To be honest I've never been the best at studying, I am the Queen of procrastinating, I can always find something to distract me. I've started thinking recently about what causes me to procrastinate so much and I think I've found the answer - I was afraid that I couldn't do it, so figured I would just put it off for as long as possible.
But now I feel like its time to put my big girl pants on and stop running any from things that scare me and start challenging myself to be the person that I know I can be. I have a lot of fantastic and inspirational people around me that I can to learn from.
Its time for me to be strong, accept the challenge and have faith in myself. Wish me luck!
