Doing It Anyway…

Jane CarrollToday…Bertha…is goading me…don’t you love that word…to step out of my comfort zone…and…do it anyway

Well…that could be about a lot of things…but today…it is about a trial run video that I made…she said…I had to post it to YouTube and then to my blog…

I protested…I don’t know how…and…I’m uncomfortable doing it…then… thinking that I had her…I added…and…that’s the truth…and you know how… Bertha…is about insisting I live my truth…

I should have known that wouldn’t work…and she was all too happy to explain…that…the truth…and…MY TRUTH…aren’t necessarily the same thing…

In fact…in this situation…

The truth is I’m uncomfortable sharing…I’m learning a new technology…I was learning it in my pajamas…with no makeup or coiffure…I’d rather wait until I have a perfect video to share…

But…

MY TRUTH…what’s in my heart…is that…I don’t have to be perfect…it’s okay to just be myself…it’s okay to share my learning curve with others…it’s okay to be uncomfortable…even downright scared…and…do it anyway…

What can I say…here’s the video…next time…I won’t wear pajamas…I’ll fix my hair…well…maybe

Overwhelmed with Change and Choices…

I’m…fixing to…take my life…my career…in a bit of a different direction… now…I have to look at the phrase…fixing to…how do you fix to…was it broken…I have no idea…but I know it is a good ole Southern phrase which I Know, Own, and Live Your Truth! ~Berthalove…

Anyway…all fixing aside…as I contemplate the changes that I am making… it’s easy to become overwhelmed…am I making the right decisions…or would it be better to do…this…instead of…that…or…should I just leave things the way they are…and go on like it’s been…maybe you can relate

Bertha…whisper-shouts in my ear…it’s okaybe yourself…listen to your heartremember…what sounds the most glamorous isn’t always…make your decisions from a place of truth…choose an action…you can choose another tomorrow…choose what you’re comfortable with…step out of your comfort zone…it’s all good…as long…as you own your truth…and act from it…

Hmmm…somehow…I’m no longer feeling overwhelmed…and…the first action up for grabs…is…well…I’ll tell you later…

Jane…

How about you…how do you handle the overwhelm of change and choices? I’d love to hear in the comments…
