I’ve had this blog since 2008, and yet I go months when I forget about it. Why? I tell myself that I’ve been too busy to post, or I don’t have anything to say. Anyone who knows me, knows that I ALWAYS have something to say.
Late at night, when it is quiet and still, and I can clearly hear my inner self, the answer comes. I’m afraid. What if no one will read it? What if too many people will read it? What if people won’t agree with me? What if ….? What if….
What if. This can be such a powerful phrase and yet such a paralyzing phrase. What if we do something differently? What if we dare to dream? What if no one likes me.
I have no wisdom to offer myself – goodness knows I wish I did. My only wisdom to Tree (my nickname, and hence the name of my blog) is that you are smart enough to listen to yourself, which means you are smart enough to do something.
