There is power waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky. And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my Darling, “What if you fly?”
Every once in our lives, there comes this time when we are scared. Or more like, nervous or maybe not so confident about ourselves. It maybe when we are sitting outside, waiting for our interview to be taken or when there are 5 minutes left for your exams. Or maybe when you ask someone to taste the food you’ve made for the first time? (You are happier that in your first attempt to cook you don’t burn down the kitchen or the food.)
So yeah. This happens right. When there are those butterflies in our stomach or when we continuously keep tapping our legs or when our shoulders our hunched or we bite our nails so on so on.
What to do?
“Fake It till You make it”
Put on a façade. A mask. That of strength, courage, determination, power and confidence. Let people see that you aren’t scared or nervous. That you are prepared and confident about it. If when from inside, you are freaking out like anything. Because, if you keep faking it after one point you can and you will actually make it through. The power and confidence you had when you mask was on would stay intact if when It falls. Because by then, you’ll know your power.
That you are unstoppable. Because, the fire inside you would be burning brighter than the darkness of it. Have your power and become different because of it. That’s when magic happens.
And just like the moons and suns, with the certainty of tides, just like hopes springing high, you’ll rise. After all, you must teach your sense of self to stand upon its own two feet, instead of propped up on the view of every person that you meet.
So now, instead of – ‘Fake It till you make it’
“Fake it till you Become it”
And in the end,
‘Look well to this day,
for it and alone is life.
In its brief course
Lie all the essence of your existence:
The Glory of Growth
The satisfaction of Achievement
The splendour of Beauty
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is but a vision.
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope ‘
So yeah. Face your fears. Face your nervousness and face the insecurity. But face it with strength, smile, courage and power. Because if you keep telling yourself that you can do it then one day you will do it.
Aim for the moon. Even if you don’t reach it, you’ll land among the stars.
