The Beginning of the Story



Are you ever preoccupied by the notion that the "grass is always greener on the other side" ? I am or so I thought but the truth is I'm paralyzed by fear- so much so I can't even get over the fence. Mine is a fear of failure, fear of making a mistake, of imperfections, of the unknown, or more so the fear of not being good enough. So as a challenge to myself, in more ways than one, I'm starting my own blog and titling it "Just B" because ultimately I can only be me, me in the moment, me in the story, and without me the story would be incomplete. There is an idea that suggests that if you begin to focus -really focus- your mind and your energy on something, positive or negative, then the universe in it's magnificent wonder will begin the process of making that happen. This is just awesome to me, so good or bad, eventually your goal will happen. Think good things and good things will happen, think negatively and you will have negative results...hum. I believe there really is truth to the power of positive thinking, why not negative thinking? So from here on out I WILL just B- b happy, b creative, b imperfect, b enough, and totally content! Now please don't get me wrong, I'm basically a well rounded person with highs and lows and the ups and downs of the daily grind, all I'm saying is that if I keep feeding the negative, think of all the time I'm wasting. My goal for this blog is to be me creatively, maybe it'll be in what I write or what I make, either way it's just me. And as my motto would have it, 'to thine own self be true', as for what this will actually become, that remains to be seen but it is what it is. So on with my journey!
