Reverb 10 December 20--Beyond Avoidance

Beyond Avoidance What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?) (Author: Jake Nickell)

Ha!  Are they kidding?  Just check my posts under "procrastination."  Maybe  "fears" and "overcoming fears," too.  This avoidance thing is where I excel!

What I've avoided this year, often because of being tired, distracted, disorganized and generally unsure of myself:
  • Writing a book
  • Cleaning my house
  • Creating and offering online workshops
  • Writing an e-book course
  • Finishing Kelly Rae Roberts' "Flying Lessons" course
  • Losing weight
  • Starting an exercise program
I'm just going to stop there.  It's depressing.  It's a lifelong problem I am working to overcome.  Yes, I intend to do many of these things in the coming weeks, months, year.

One thing I will make note of--I think I've mentioned this before: I believe all of my incompletes all track back to an inner lack of feeling secure, nurtured and confident. So a lot of my focus is going to be on learning to care for myself, creating the support I need to accomplish my goals, and boosting my belief in myself and my self-confidence.  I'll keep you posted on how it's going.
