The Gift Of Fun : A Personal Tale

Been thinking about a project that I may or may not do.  While deciding, I have had to learn some new skills in order to bring it to a point of preparedness.  Venturing into new territory is ridden with anxiety.  Can I pull it off?  Will anyone else be interested in the idea?  These are all questions that are surfacing while sorting through the steps that must be taken to share this event with others.

No one else can decide whether to go through with the project.  It is up to me to make the choice.  In doing so, some trusted friends have been canvased for their opinion.  This can be nerve racking.  Simply because the feedback may tip the balance when coming to a conclusion.

Knowing these kind people, it is almost guaranteed that they will encourage moving forward.  This prospect scares the crap out of me.  It is far easier to talk oneself out of going through with it.  To involve others means taking a step closer to putting the idea out there.  That is frightening.

Boldly moving out of the comfort zone is exciting.  By sharing this project, some much needed entertainment will be doled out.  Not just for me but for those who choose to participate.  This is a shift in thinking and the main focus now becomes, ‘how can I make it even more fun for them?’  When looking at it from this angle, I want to complete the project.  There is a willing desire to give the gift of fun to anyone who wants to play along.

Still, there is a part of me that wants to hold back.  Probably, the scared little kid, we all have inside of us who just wants to be liked.  Yet, the idea has potential to bring joy to all involved.  Do I do it?  Or don’t I?  We shall see.  For the sake of ‘fun for all’, pretty sure the answer will be a resounding, ‘yes’.
