From the Outside Looking In

It is funny how the people closest to you can see things in you and possibilities for you that you never even had in mind for yourself.  We plan things for our life and never count on the unexpected opportunities that pop up along the way.  You know those things that you never thought you would be good at but that somehow fit right into you niche that you are carving out for yourself.  

Ms. L has foreseen something for me that somehow fits right into my other plans for my Media Company and that might actually help elevate things to the next level but it is something that I never even thought about doing before.  I must admit (she’s going to say I told you so later) that her foresight could be quite lucrative if it is as successful as she thinks it could be.  But I am just afraid that because it’s something I could never see myself doing, that other people will look at me with that judgmental look and the lingering questions in their mind of ‘how can she possibly be successful at this’.  Why not, it’s the same question I have for myself.  

But I promised her that I would give it some thought (and I don’t want to say what it is until I’m sure that I would actually do it) and that I would stop putting that wall up for myself and telling myself that I can’t do something before I even try.  Sometimes Ms. L sees things in the bigger picture that I never even saw and it’s amazing what the opinion from someone on the outside looking in can mean to your projected future.  I think I like Ms. L’s view of my projected future.  Until tomorrow…What do you project for your future?
