I've given up on a large number of ideas that thinking back could have been great considering the direction my life has gone.
The one thing I almost gave up on was creating a personal blog so that I can practice my writing and share stories and now that I have accomplished creating the blog, it's just a matter of keeping up with it. I still have a lot to learn about blogging, but it has given me satisfaction in just starting.
There were definitely a lot of dis-empowering beliefs associated like rejection or quite honestly the fear of success in general. I am learning to create more empowering beliefs day to day through mindfulness practices and confidence I build along the way.
