What’s Holding Me Back?

Today I think I’ll write about what’s holding me back.

I trudge along day to day, not really happy in what I’m doing, feeling like I have to go back day after day just to pay the bills.  I know I can do so much better.  After all, I see people on YouTube and TedTalks and I know damn well they’re not smarter than me.  They’re not more ambitious than me.  They’re not better than me in any way.  Yet here I sit.  Stagnant.  Unfulfilled.  Wanting more and even knowing how to get it.  Just not doing it.  Waiting.

I crave a challenge.  I need a problem to solve.  My mind must be occupied.  I feel guilty if I spend 1 day screwing off.  Seriously, sometimes that really sucks!
