I often have this tendency to downplay the things that I want or am feeling. By not saying it, not reaching out, not even trying. And I need to be able to stand strong and vocalize what is going on inside. I don’ want to be weak with what I am feeling. I don’t want to miss out on an opportunity simply because I am being shy and can’t speak up or reach out.

“Don’t seek the attention of being seen, especially as you are writing this.

“You desire an outcome that you could have if you act/ask/do.
You have to go get it.

“Don’t wait for them to see it, don’t wait for them to see you, It won’t come.
You have to speak up.
Follow the impulse.
Ask. Connect. Do. Create.

“You are missing the call to action.
You are failing to act on what you know.
And you can have nothing you want if you do not reach for it.

“Regret what wasn’t done.
Not what was.
So don’t let yourself regret what wasn’t done – by doing those things.”

– July 2018

These were just a few notes I found associated to this image from July while I was cleaning out my Google Keep.

They were musings as I roamed around the streets, late at night while everyone else was asleep.

But they were important musings; nothing new for me, but it was the first time I acted on some of those musings in that moment, on that level.
