Une photo, une histoire being a real success, I decided to start a new series. This time, it’s all about thoughts, famous or not and what I make of it.
I love this quote for many reasons. First, Nelson Mandela has been an inspiration for many people, many generations.
Also, it illustrates perfectly when I started my blog. Before I decided to go for it, I thought long and hard about the whole thing. It was like a dream that would never become real. Pourquoi? Because I was scared.
I was afraid to be judged. I was frightened of people thinking I was an idiot. I was worried about making mistakes. And I am sure I make some! But I realised that it was fine. Because I am not English. Je suis française!
And if people don’t like what I am writing, then they just need to close the page and move on to something else.
The Frenchie Mummy Blog started exactly the 4th of May 2016. And I had this idée since December! I still remember when I talked about it to ma famille et mes amis. They were far from being convinced it was a good idea.
And then I read an article in a magazine. The celebrity interviewed said something that made an impression on me. ‘It’s not about perfection, it’s about having a go. You are enough no matter what happens’. That was it. I just decided to go for it. Moi, I was the best reason to start this writing project. And Baba as well. After all, he is the main inspiration 😏.
And since then, no regrets. Au contraire, I actually wonder why I didn’t do it earlier!
And you, what dream(s) do you think is/are impossible? What is stopping you from reaching them?
