Don’t Play It Safe – EVER!
December 13th, 2011 by Jill
So you’ve probably noticed the title of my blog? ~ it’s kinda ballsy ~ in a girlfriends’ heart~to~heart~pep-talk~kinda way and that’s exactly how it was borne. Out of a conversation with a friend who gave me 3 options ~ from gutsy to PG13 ~ for her latest blog post title. Without a second thought, I chose the most ballsy title, because A. it was the best and B. DON’T PLAY IT SAFE – EVER! I ended the email with #f❤*kinggoforit!
That’s when I had my own huge Aha! moment. I realized right then and there that I needed to take my own advice in a big dose (with a green juice chaser), #f❤*kinggoforit! and stop playing it safe!
Playing it safe has been a comforting staple in my life for most of it ~ a safe haven where I could curl up and hide from the “unknown”. I’ve also had more than a few “go cold turkey” moments with that comforting cloak that envelops me, but suffocates me at the same time. I’ve come to understand that there are two versions of me 1. the do and say the right thing, do what is expected of me version and 2. the ballsy, funny, fearless true believer, that believes anything is possible and if you want something ~ go get it! (I personally like number 2. waay better).
So here’s how that two-headed monster usually works ~ I decide I want to do something career-wise that I have not done before, with sheer determination and a “passionate” manifesto in hand ~ no one can EVER turn me down.
This is what happens sooner or later ~the safe ~ do the right thing ~ let others lead version of me takes over and I stagnate, get bored, become resentful and then I find a new bright, shiny thing to do and I move on!
Sounding OH so familiar??
Well my confession to you today is Oops! I did it again! I put out the ballsy #f❤*kinggoforit! call to action ~ I’ve created the site, put a ton of time, effort, research and love into it AND (insert drum role here) you guessed it ~ the safe me came out to play ~
The safe posts, the safe videos ~all part of who I genuinely am ~ but not the full-blown, “passion-fueled”, fun, ballsy version of me ~
So I am gonna do something about it and I’m wanting a group of closet SUPER women to join me!
f❤*k New Year’s Resolutions! (I mean it FUCK ‘em)
