A few short years ago I was sitting in front of a computer and dreading the next budget meeting. I would never have expected to be writing a blog about how overwhelmed I am to be OPENING AN ART GALLERY. My art gallery! My art! Is this really possible? I am pinching myself and wondering if I am worthy of this success?
You see, I build very high expectations for myself. The pressure to meet these expectations are overwhelming as I worry about living up to my own standards. Pinching myself!
For me, the fear of failure has become even more pronounced as I approach my goals. The closer I get to realizing my dreams, the greater the fear of not succeeding becomes. Pinching myself!
I have an uncanny way of diminishing my accomplishments. But I have to admit, I am trying really hard (this time) to appreciate the significance of my accomplishments. I would never have imagined this is where I would be at 53.
I AM PINCHING MYSELF.
Oh, and here are the details in case you would like to visit.
