Making the tea. When you feel the fear!Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube
You are arrested by your own fears.
You are the only one stopping you. "Because I might get laughed at!" "Because I might get it wrong!" Sound familiar?
If you never try, you’ll never know.
You could be the best.
But a reluctance to face what you could be great at is, of course, a holdback.
If you’re strong enough to not want regrets, you need to let go of your fears. Though people may laugh at the start, when it becomes your norm, people who appreciate you will laugh at them!
Just because someone doesn’t believe in something, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong for you.
My parents are very protective of me and won’t even let me make a cup of tea! Crazy I know: they are only worried about me getting burnt because of the position of the kettle opposed to me.
But sometimes it’s best to let me make my own cups of tea and reap the consequences. It’s time for me to grow up and adapt to kitchen layouts. I can’t wait forever. I adapted and didn’t hurt myself last time.
It’s not often I crave cups of tea so when I do let me.
