So, here’s the thing.
I don’t know what I am doing. I’m letting fear win. I’ve been poking around here for a month. It’s time. I’m a beginner. I’m going to make mistakes. But I want this to be perfect. I don’t want you to know that I don’t know what I’m doing. I want the this to look professional and polished. I just want it to be good, so good. Is there a enough room out there for one more voice? Is there just enough room? A little space for you and me?
So here’s the thing, nothing starts good-perfect-amazing-brilliant at the start. All of us are learning something. If I want to create, I’m going to have to create. I want to create Just Enough Room. I’m going to have to hit that scary Publish Button. There will never be a perfect moment, a enough time, or anything else. There is only right now. And this is the time. Time to make just enough room.
I’m a Beginner.
This has to begin somewhere. What if nothing was ever created? What if no one ever put pen to paper? No one sang, no one danced, no one painted, or created a new thought? What a flat and colorless world that would be. All the Great Ones were once beginners who kept showing up to the creativity that wanted to born into the world. There is flavor and texture and color to behold. Look for it! There is just enough room for beginners.
I’m going to make mistakes.
I’m going to have to be alright with being new, with making mistakes, with being messy. I don’t even have to be very good at this. I DO have to give this a whirl. IF I don’t do this, then fear wins. As a beginner, you can make the big mistakes. That’s how we learn. Most of us learn by doing. None of us likes to fail. But that is where the lessons are. We learn when we do. I’m learning as I struggle to bring Just Enough Room to life, I can do hard things. You can do hard things. If you don’t bring your words, your songs, your voice, your creation out to play, the world loses. A little bit of genius is lost forever.
S0, here’s the thing…
This is terrifying. What if this fails? What is it doesn’t? Which is scarier? All I can do is give it my best effort. I will learn. Just Enough Room to find a little time, to be a beginner, to make mistakes and be fine with what happens. Just enough room to explore what values make the world a better place. I don’t know what will come from any of this. I do know that we all can endeavor to bring forth a little more kindness, a little more grace, a little more hope and a little more joy. There is just enough room for all of this. And maybe, even a little more.
Join me, as we headed off on this little adventure…
