Now I know I don't write in here often, and there's a simple explanation for that: I'm not a blogger. The purpose of this website is mainly for me to share my poetry, my inspirations, my thoughts....ok maybe it's blogging 101--the bare minimum. That means you won't find a daily, probably not even a weekly update. But from time to time I sense the undeniable urge to release some tension, translated into creativity. What compels me to actually write something beyond poetry are those sporadic moments in life when I realize an event bigger than my own expectations has taken place, and I feel obligated to share my elation (or lack thereof) with kind ears. What event has led my fingers to the keyboard this time, you ask? DOUBT. Not the movie, although definitely worth watching and analyzing, but the doubt that we experience when we are so close to greatness we can feel the static. I"m not sure if this feeling is induced by anxiety or if I am in fact way in over my head. What I"m referring to can also be described as "too good to be true." We all wish for this golden moment, but when it actually arrives, we're almost scared to touch it. It's fragile. Do we deserve it? Did it come too quickly? Is it a fabrication of the truth, a mere projection of my imagination? Have I been oblivious all this time? DOUBT.
My main concern is whether or not I will be able to maintain a strategy balanced enough to facilitate the onset of these doubts and the realization that they don't actually exist--this is my conjecture. The more weight I give them, the more surreal everything seems. Still a work in progress, I am adopting positive affirmations that specifically target raising my confidence. If i BELIEVE that I deserve something because I've worked diligently and selflessly to attain that level of reward, then there is no reason to disqualify myself when I am near the finish line. I know I"m using all these weird abstract analogies and metaphors, but consider this a taste of my psyche. :)
Anyway, walk this journey with me as we learn to efface the beast of doubt from the moving pictures of our minds. And let's try to concentrate on all great things to come. They are close, indeed. And it's okay to accept that these breakthroughs can happen even in for us. :-)
