Recently in a Facebook post I stated that “Fear is a controllable condition. Don’t let fear dictate your future”. Those of you who’ve followed PaisleyPerspective know that it was created in part because of me losing my job last year. I have subsequently become employed at a prominent software company, however, during my time of unemployment I was able to remember what I wanted to be when I grew up. My desire at the age of 10 was to become a writer not as much a journalist but a writer of fiction. Somewhere along the journey of life, I lost my focus.
We all must face some form of uncertainty and fear oftentimes stops us from pursuing our dreams. Fear of failure is what hinders us the most. However, unless we try to do what we desire we will never know if it is possible. It has been said time and time again that you fail if you do not try. I love to write and I love to share my opinion on many issues, so I decided in October 2010 that I wanted to share my thoughts on a large scale. PaisleyPerspective is the product of an unemployed woman who wanted to share opinions and ideas about everything under the sun.
My next focus is to increase the posting frequency for PaisleyPerspective to weekly in lieu of bi-monthly. This may mean less content per post but there will still be a focus on providing interesting content. Those who have followed my life via the various blog posts know that I am still healing from my mother’s and grandmother’s deaths. I loved them dearly and they were part of my motivation for much of what I did in life. But now I must take all that they taught me and move forward through life with the energy of their love.
The longer we live, we definitely will be thrown unexpected situations, yet it is how we respond to the unknown that defines our character. Sure we may want to climb under a rock and hide on some days but we must live even when times gets tough. So as I move forward and continue to live, I will keep sharing my opinions and ideas through the pages of PaisleyPerspective.com. Thank you for stopping by and I will talk to you next week.
