So Random

Since I still haven’t finished my HSMG Conference post (I know, I know I am a bad girl) I thought I’d do a quick post with some random stuff.

1. I saw UP last night and really enjoyed it. They did throw in some tear jerking moments…I was already teary eyed within the first 15 min. I highly recommend spending the cash to see it on the big screen - and I am sure its even worth the extra few dollars to see it in 3D (which is how I had wanted to see it but was outvoted by Mister, Molly and Paul…punks). Click here to see one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Note: I pretty much believe that PIXAR can do no wrong.

2. I just got the new JCrew catalog, which is filled with numerous things that I really really want but cannot have. Curse you JCrew for tempting me to shop with your cute flats and pretty tops!!!!

Fear...Dun Dun Duuuuun.

I just saw this great post about Fear at Soap and the Finer Things In Life by The Soap Queen aka Anne-Marie Faiola. This is an issue I struggling with when it comes to starting my own business, I have many fears not only about failing but about succeeding as well (sounds weird but its true!). I can truly overwhelm myself with fear when I start imagining all sorts of future scenarios involving my business. What happens if my business fails? What will I do then? What happens if I succeed? What will my life be like?? Some of us have learned how to deal with Fear and keep moving forward while others havent reached that place yet. I know I need to work on acknowledging my fears - then to just keep truckin. Otherwise I will get stuck, feeling helpless and in turn not following my dreams and passions which would pretty much suck! That is definitely NOT how I want to live my life.

What fears do you deal with?? How do you deal with them??
