To be an FFT, or not to be an FFT?

Okay, have I confused you yet?

So, I’m starting this blog out by a) confusing you with the title (you’re welcome!) and b) referencing a concept that has probably been around for awhile…but I hadn’t heard it this way before. So an FFT, according to Brene Brown’s podcast  Unlocking Us Podcast, an FFT (AKA F–I’m sure you can figure out the first word First Time) essentially embraces the awkwardness of new and/or unknown experiences.

You might be asking yourself as you read this, “why are you calling this an FFT?” People who know me outside of this space might (or, honestly, might not) know that I have had a blog before–perhaps even a few of them. What makes this an FFT, for me, at least, is the fact that I’m really trying to establish a blog. It has been a goal of mine for years. I’d get started, and then freak out because I thought I had to have specific blogs for specific things and I got overwhelmed. This usually led me to quit (even when I had a good thing going!) and then I’d feel guilty and frustrated for quitting, and essentially it just turned from a slippery slope to a shame cycle.

I am now back at square one and I’m excited and nervous because I really do have a lot of things that I’d like to talk about at some point in time. I just need to breathe, cut myself some slack, and take it one day at a time. I hope that you’ll join me!
