The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

Get Over It!

I have definitely reached a point where being sad or upset about my past has gotten old. This whole not having self-confidence is a bit old too. Why did I let someone else take so much away from me? I really have to get over it, you know? Enough already!

Part of what gets me when I start to think about my past is this feeling of "Why didn't I take advantage of _____ when I had the chance?" (Insert whatever into the blank. e.g. sleeping in, being young, my freedom) Or realizing that I didn't live to my fullest potential back when. The big problem with this kind of thinking is that it seriously starts to depress me, which in turn keeps me from taking advantage of all of the wonderful things happening to me right now, or living to my full potential today. I am sick of looking back and being disappointed in myself!

The only way to change that is to start today to make a difference in myself. I know that I have the potential to write a novel and to get it published. I actually believe that I have the potential to write a best-selling novel and make some money doing it. So what is holding me back? Nothing but myself, really, and I know it. It's time to really work to get over the past and start believing in myself again.
