Hit The Submit Button

Hit The Submit Button - Kristie Jean

I applied to a project the other day that would require a one year commitment. I only had an hour and half left to apply and I just sat there staring at the page. All the questions were filled out and all I had to do was hit the submit button. As I sat there I couldn’t help but think of all the things I would have to give up to do the project. It took me a few minutes, a deep breathe and me telling myself that there is a high chance I won’t even get chosen to hit that button.

The moment of pause on submitting my application had nothing to with not wanting to get the project because trust me, I can only dream about getting so lucky to actually get chosen, but more about shutting the door on other projects and plans. I have always been one that is a bit all over the place. I love to write, I love photography, I love painting, the list goes on and I have a tendency to try to focus on everything all at once.

Sometimes though, you have to take a leap of faith and hit the submit button. There is a chance that it will shut the door on something that is good, but there is always a chance that it will open the door to something great.

Keep dreaming…
