I have had conversations with friends over the years who want to start writing or video posting or sharing their knowledge/passions in same way. They all seemed to be stuck at the same point of not know what to say or how to say it.
I always end up telling them the same thing: say what no one else can say, which is your truth. Your story and your life. No one can copy it and no can call you wrong in telling it. Start there. Thing is, there are lots of people out there who are going through many of the same things that you are and wondering if they are the only one. They’re not — but how would they ever know that if both that person and you are afraid of putting it out there?
Someone has to step up and be the first on the dance floor. Yes — all eyes will be on you. Yes — you’ll be nervous. Yes — some of those who stayed safely holding up the wall will ridicule you. But an hour later when everyone is dancing, you can sit back and know that you’re the one who got he party started. Or, you can go home kicking yourself for not stepping up when you had the chance. The chance is now.
