Being scared is easy, just try something new.
I have been scared. A lot. I never thought I could do that I just did do. I tried. But I did it only because what I attempted was easy, just like everything is once you’ve done it. But before that, it seems so worthy, so magnificent, so meaningful, so difficult – like everything worthy does.
Never though I’d contribute towards my first song that will see the air of play . Never though I’d earn from a set of businesses, never thought I’d get to call myself a consultant, never thought I’d have a home office and I never thought I’d achieve my life goal that I had in college, before my life was over. All this and more. Scary stuff, all of it, but only when I hadn’t done it. Allah has created us, after all, so outdoing ourselves is not that big a deal. But only when the deal is done, not before. Before that, it is scary time.
And right now, I am scared.
