I want to be as Super Fabulous as them, but I've decided that I can't always have what I want.
And that's okay.
At least, I need it to be okay.
Perhaps I'll go into holy-cow-withdrawal, but I've decided to take a step back from blogging. I won't worry about my blogging schedule. I won't allow myself to feel stressed or like my Whole Career depends on my blogging.
Instead, I'm going to practice being a writer.
I will write and publish new books. I will market and promote my books. I will write more books. I will enjoy reading people's blogs because I will have time for them, time to support and encourage them, which makes me happy. I will be a writing ninja extraordinaire.
I am not Elana nor Alex. I am me. And I've got to be okay with that.
BUT it is scary. I've got a great following here. You might lose interest in my blog. You might be totally right to do so. You might think I am somehow "less than" because I'm not Super Fabulous. So that's my insecurity--that I'm not as awesome as I might like to be. That I am trying to find my limitations, or better demarcate them so I can avoid running into them, and in so doing I might lose your interest or attention.
Those fears may or may not be legitimate--but that's the whole point of the IWSG, right? Most of our insecurities are irrational; though it really is nice to be able to share these silly fears with you!
Do you honor your limitations? Or do you, like I have up until now, constantly push those limits in the hope that you will one day be as Super Fabulous as those bloggers you admire?
