Occasionally you get those emails in your inbox and you think “That’s really exciting but I seriously do not stand a chance”. Well I had an email and a group update like that last week and decided that I was going to step out and do it. Just go for it and see what happened. So I gathered my bullet journal, pens and craft materials and got started.
It sounds a little silly but this quote from Nadiya who won GBBO keeps coming back to me. I think I often quit or don’t take part for the fear of not succeeding rather than taking the risk and doing it (if that makes sense). So I did it, I took the risk and applied to two teams.
I’m never gonna put boundaries on myself ever again. I’m never gonna say I can’t do it. I’m never gonna say ‘maybe’. I’m never gonna say, ‘I don’t think I can.’ I can and I will.
Well, it did happen and it’s super exciting! I got an email over the weekend letting me know that I was picked and as of earlier today I can actually talk about it, I was picked along with some other amazing lovely ladies to be part of the Awesome Ladies Project Creative Team. It’s all headed up by Kristin from RUKristin. (If you read regularly you will know that I use prompts inspired by her on my usual Monday posts.)
I told Chris yesterday evening just by sending him a screenshot of the email and a message about a second team I applied for and he responded with “You can’t get picked if you don’t enter!” Followed by “So you have > 0% chance because you did.” (Followed by a bunch of emojis lol).
You can check out my other team mates here. There’s Alison, Caroline, Celena, Danica, Emily, Jenn, Katie, Marina, Melody, Nulls, Odessa and Patricia in this creative team! I’m really excited to get started and will be sharing my work here too.
What exciting things have happened to you this weekend?
