“To be nobody-but-yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” – e.e. cummings
The first blog post on Song of Your Heart was an act of courage. I had to get out of my head, write the words, and hit publish before I talked myself out of it again. At the end of the post I wrote my mission:
I’m on a mission to have you truly believe that who you are is enough. You have nothing to prove to anyone. And that it is time to listen to the song of your heart.
I honestly don’t know if I’m doing a good job fulfilling this mission.
I’m trying. But could I be doing more?
With so many strong voices already telling you who you are is enough, I’m not sure my voice is loud enough. And there it is – self-doubt.
I’m fully aware that I am enough. I’m also fully aware that I’m not reaching the number of people that I want to reach. This makes me question my ability to write engaging content that is helpful.
Maybe I haven’t given it enough time. Maybe I could be trying harder. Or maybe my content really is just not good enough.
I have no clue.
But I still believe in my mission so I’m going to push through the doubt. I’m still going to be living with my “nobody-but-yourself” heart.
And I will see you next Sunday.
