We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.
– Eleanor Roosevelt –
I sent my project report to the library yesterday. It’s done. I still can’t really believe it and I partly think someone, somewhere is going to call me up and say, “Bah! We lied! You’re not done your Masters; you’ll never be done!” But I know that’s just me being a worry wort. Because really and truly, it is over.
I learned a lot in the process. I kept putting off the writing because I was scared of it. The report took on a life of its own that, as time went on, resembled the boogey man more and more. I thought the task was mightier than little me could handle, but when I got a closer look, it wasn’t all that bad after all. In fact, I felt a heck of a lot better facing it head on than I did dodging it.
Have you ever had a task that you kept avoiding? What did you do to pluck up the courage to face it?
