Be Awesome: Do It Anyway


This blog has grown so much in so many ways. In the last few weeks, it’s seen some remarkable growth in traffic. Thank you so much. I can’t believe people are actually reading. That’s crazy! But mostly it’s grown to be something I really love and get excited about. I’ve had the opportunity to meet a few other bloggers and geek out with them about how cool food blogging can be. I’m so thrilled that it’s catching on because it’s been a huge source of joy for me.

When I first started this project back in the spring, I had a huge list of reasons why I shouldn’t be doing this. I’m a terrible photographer, I don’t even have a camera, I don’t have very many friends to read and pretend to like it, and I’m not that creative. But I felt compelled, so I did it anyway. I started from way back off the line, but now things are starting to catch up and come together.

It’s been like that with a lot of things in my life. Some of the best things I ever did were things I was totally unprepared for. I learned what I needed as I went along. Not everything worked out perfectly. But if I step back and take a very long view, I’m right where I need to be.

If there’s something stirring in the back of your mind, an idea or adventure you’ve always wanted to try, I say, go for it! You have a million reasons why it will never work? Do it anyway! Don’t have enough money? Scale it back to something smaller, or make a plan to save up. Don’t have the talent? Says who? DO IT ANYWAY! Chances are, that’s probably your insecurity talking. Give it a shot. If it doesn’t work out, the world will not stop spinning. The worst that can happen is that you had a little fun and learned something about yourself. The best that can happen? You discover something in yourself you never knew you had and it changes your world.

I still have a ton to learn about blogging and a million more things I want to try, do, and learn. I’m looking into the future and seeing things growing beyond my wildest expectations. It might not happen. I’m gonna do it anyway.
