So my hubby spent a great deal of time talking to me last night about things he sees me doing. I wish I could borrow his glasses! *snort*
It reminded me of the way he was talking to me 4 years ago about blogging and how much I would enjoy it and how sure he was I’d be good at it. I was really resistant, not sure why just couldn’t quite wrap my brain around it I guess. In my defense, this was just before the big blogging boom. To his credit, he was absolutely right.
The cool thing is that some of what he said struck a chord with me. I’m a talent nomad. I do so many things, dabble in so many, enjoy so many that it’s impossible for me to focus on just one thing and I love to share. In the past I’ve not been sure that’s such a good thing, but since I began blogging I’m seeing it a new light and I’m loving it. So the more I think on it I think he might be on to something, and he is a smart guy who has proven he’s been right about things like this before.
In short, he says he sees me making money with my sharing things online from my personality to my knowledge and talents. As it’s already stuff I’m doing anyway and he’s there to help support and direct me I think I’ll take the plunge. I’ve got nothing to lose and a lot to gain according to him so I guess we’ll see what comes of it.
I’m wondering why it’s so easy to pigeon hole yourself into an “I can’t do that” box? Why we so easily discredit ourselves before trying something because clearly we don’t have enough credentials or whatever the magic requirement is to do something? My entire focus of my blog has been the motto of making my life a masterpiece and sharing what I learn along the way. It might be time to take it up a notch.
