crossing the finish line

What would Eleanor Do: Ask for what you want

I decided that the best path for me for the next 40 days was to follow the advice of Eleanor Roosevelt. It seems like a natural way to attack my personal fears and insecurities. As you might have noticed, I have marked today as Day Two. Yesterday was Day One with the first act being taking on this challenge. So now…on Day Two…

Day Two

The fear of rejection is one of the most overwhelming ones for any person on the planet. It has haunted me for years (maybe decades). Today seemed like a good day to work on it. So I mustered all the courage that I had, and I asked a guy out. Yep, I asked a guy out. This might not be a big deal for anyone else, but it was a huge deal for me. Now, the outcome was kind of a mix. He didn’t say no, but he didn’t say yes. Oh well. While I would have preferred a definite “yes,” the bigger victory is that I put myself out there. Full disclosure: I don’t fully believe the previous statement yet, but I’m working on it.

2 days down, 38 days to go…conquering fear day by day

    I am so proud of you. That is an awesome step… Putting yourself out there is never an easy thing. You are fabulous and I think Eleanor would be happy with this.

    • Thanks. I just wished that I had gotten a different reply. Grr…I like getting my way all the time. šŸ˜‰
