Do It Afraid!!

Testing, Testing, One, Two. Is this thing on? I guess there’s no real way to tell until I post this. Yikes!! So this will be my first official blog post for TONIESTES.COM. Just thinking about that makes me a little cray cray. This website has been “going up” for AT LEAST the last 6 months. We’d hit a snag, and then we’d move forward. We’d hit another snag, and then move forward again. Not far forward, but forward. I’ve toyed with the idea of having a blog forever, but to be honest I think I was…AFRAID!! Yep, I said it. I was little afraid. “Afraid of what?”, you may ask. Afraid of everything and nothing. Grammar, typos, exposure, writers block, time, space, and topics. EVERYTHING and nothing, and the list could go on. I just have this thing about being great. The truth of the matter is, you’re not going to be great at everything. The only possible way to get to the position of great is to try. You can’t win if you don’t get in the race. So this my friends is my official entrance into the race. Who am I racing? Me. I just want to be better than I was yesterday. The fact that i’m actually posting this says i’ve already won that race. There will be a new race everyday. I can safely say I won’t win them all. However, it won’t be because I didn’t try. I’m excited about sharing “stuff” with you. My my mom has this saying, “Do it Afraid”. So from here on out, when it comes to the matters of being great, I will DO IT AFRAID. You should do the same!!! Now, let’s do this!!! ;)

Best,

Toni E.

P.S.

When I pressed post my computer locked up and I thought I lost the whole thing!! Is this a sign I should get out of the race? Ha! Absolutely not! ;)
