This fabulous, tutu wearing, glitter crowned, dancing chicken hangs in my office. It’s a card I got for my birthday. It makes me smile and reminds me that we can all be fabulous. She reminds me of my chicken, Sesame. Yes, my chickens have worn tutus. In fact, there is a video of them running around with tutus and I was laughing so hard while filming that I literally almost fell to the ground in the woods.
How often do you underestimate yourself? How many times do you avoid something new because it’s scary? Fear of failure or rejection, imposter syndrome, lack of self confidence… all those things try to keep us small. We wonder if we are enough. We may miss out on life.
Our youngest son has a You Tube show “The Unspecified Show.” He started it last year when he was 15. He has adjusted and improved and now he has added a podcast (Be Unspecified Podcast). At 16, he’s more brave than many adults. He took a chance, and he’s fabulous. He has learned new skills, advocated for himself, met with businesses, had a float in the parade, is working on an adopt a highway section, and has grown his audience. I am so proud of him.
He has inspired me to reach further myself. I am working on self-publishing a book and starting a another project also. It’s going to be fabulous. I’m going to learn, grow and meet new people. Is it scary? Yep, yes it is. I don’t want to be left with “what if’s.” Life is short, make it great!
Peace be with you on your journey of enough. Have a fabulous day!
One thought on “Be fabulous…”
LOL @ that photo! I absolutely love it and this message! Taking risks is one of the most frightening things we can do; however, it’s also one of the most rewarding. I think when we learn that there is no such thing as ‘failure’ unless we give up completely, we’re more apt to try new things. That was the case for me, anyway.
I really enjoy Miles’ YouTube channel. He has a wry sense of humor and a direct nature of authenticity that relates to his audience regardless of age. He takes after his mother!
Be Fearlessly Fabulous, Mavis! Looking forward to your book! xo
