Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. I have many strengths and weaknesses. One of my strengths is that I am a natural planner. Once I know where I want to go, I can reverse-engineer a plan rather effectively. My weakness? Believing my plan is effective and putting it into action. I have a major weakness in putting my plan into action.
Here is a perfect example, this blog. I have a vision for this community I want to create. I envision certain components and want to work them hard. In fact, I’ve shared my vision to multiple people, and every single person got excited and said that it was a fantastic idea and that I needed to make it happen. This kind of affirmation doesn’t usually come with all my ideas, but when it does, I need to do this. My vision includes uniting diabetics together, equipping them with the education to be able to advocate for their own care. I also want people to realize that there is normal in the day to day life of a diabetic. There is no shame, no hiding, no stigma. I want to start that here. Here is the question, why am I stalling?
I am second-guessing my actions. One of the major ones are the topics of my blog posts. When I get an idea, I think ,”Oh this is great!”, then I go to write it and then when I finish, I don’t publish it. Why? Because I think its not good enough or important enough. Well guess what? If I want to create that normalcy and show and educate people, I need to write. I need to write on any topic, and every topic.
I am writing this for my own accountability. If you’ve read it this far, you’re awesome. I am facing my demons to put action towards big dreams of mine. What are you doing to put into action, towards your dreams? Your goals? Do you even know what you want to do? It doesn’t have to be diabetes related, but do you have direction in your life? Find it, it is very rewarding.
My Sweet Regards,
