Just shoot

Yep I’m procrastinating again!  As I sit here reading blog after blog and forum after forum before I know it my days are gone.  I should really get out there and just shoot.  I mean it is finally sunny this week for the first time in years.  Okay maybe not years but it sure seems like it sometimes.   Today I feel full of doubt.  Doubt that my dreams and goals will ever come true.  Doubt that I can ever be as successful as the other guys.  I know I’m a girl but you know what I mean!  Why am I not world famous yet,  I’ve been shooting for 6 months now?!  When you want something so badly this is exactly how it feels, like you’ve been waiting and trying forever!  Today I feel like I’m hitting a wall and just want someone to come take me by the hand and tell me everything I need to do to make this work.  I keep staring out the window and no one is coming but I do see the beautiful sunshine so I guess for today, I’ll just go out and shoot.

  • erika - Do I ever know how you feel! I’ve been starting my business verrrrry slowly, trying to get all my ducks in a row before jumping. I could never just quit my job and try to swim because I need the health insurance! So I’ve been dipping my toes in the water and trying to get things going. I’ve got my fingers crossed that all the days I spend plugging away will finally snowball and this will take off!ReplyCancel

  • Steph Sullins - There for a minute, I thought *I* was writing that post! LOL Except you had sunshine today!;) Just challenge yourself to do what needs to be done:

    -Network, market, etc!!

    You’ll get there! Now I must go and take my own advice!
    PS. are you going to WPPI? I am hoping that will be a huge kick in the pants for me!:)
