Please read this wonderful and timely post Why Not? by the writer of The Godly Chic Diaries about “Why Not” do what we want to do, even when we didn’t know we wanted to do it until someone suggested it?
Godly Chic writes:
My friends often joke that spending time with me is dangerous — because I will make you want to start something. Sometimes that something wasn’t even something you wanted until you begin to believe in yourself
And that last part is key: “until you begin to believe in yourself”.
Reading The Godly Chic’s article Why Not? “iterated” (her word :- ) for me what I try almost daily to convince writing students of, but she says it much more eloquently.
Thank you, Godly Chic, for your article and for your website overall. (I highly recommend reading all Godly Chic’s articles and following her blog for more).
