Taking the First Step (Freewrite)

Taking the first step is scary.  You get nervous, have doubts,  lose confidence, and fears hold you back.  Once you knock those negative feelings aside, you must take a plunge.  You must take that first step.   Nothing will ever happen to you if you don’t move forward. You won’t get anywhere in life that way.

‘You never gone make it if you never rolled a dice
Take the first step, that was Doctor King’s advice’

-Dom Kennedy – Locals Only (2011 hip-hop single)

Things will get easier as you take that step and move forward.  The other day, I took the first steps to forward and invest into my dreams.  I decided to run two ads on my  Facebook page for two recent projects I’m proud of.   The first is my analysis on the Sailor Moon S narrative themes, and my analysis on Bakemonogatari’s Hitagi’s mental health.  Yea, instant success and engagement won’t happen overnight, it’s a long process. A process I must stick with long term if I want long term success.

It’s a risky thing to do; investing money into a Facebook ad in hopes that people will read my writings and spread it around.  But what’s life without taking risks?  What’s life without taking that first step?  If you do not take that risk, that gamble, you’ll never move forward in life.  You’ll never be successful.

I’m gonna move forward.

It’s alright.  Take a chance.  You can do anything.
