I just pressed ‘Send’.
I’ve been putting this off since January. I kept finding things I ‘needed to do’ first.
After a while I realised I had written it time and time again in my head.
I was putting it off because until I pressed send there was always the possibility that I could get in. Yet if I pressed send, there was always the possibility that I wouldn’t.
I began to feel like it was insurmountable that I would never meet the standard required to succeed.
But by doing nothing, I will always fail. I may yet be told that I am not able to get a place in the course I want, but I can at least say I tried and that is always worth more than failing to do anything.
If I could just convince this cat to get off my lap, I feel like I could do anything today.
