Starting out on this new venture has been somewhere between exciting and nerve-wracking. You ever envision something, work on it, tell a few people, then get all nervous when its time to really get started? Well, that is/was me. Call is divine guidance that the idea for this site came to me one day in August 2015 and I began to write the ideas down. I worked on it, got all excited, then life happened and I let it fall by the side. My husband and a few other friends would occasionally ask me about it, but when I gave them more excuses than timelines, they too eventually stopped asking. There were even some people who told me this wasn’t where they ‘saw’ me- blogging. That hurt too. But then a few weeks ago I got my nerve up to take that leap. I jumped into making some decisions about my 9-to-5, and as if that wasn’t scary enough, I took another leap to start ATWM.com.
The night after I made the first post live I could hardly calm myself down to go to sleep…and my alarm goes off at 5:30am (sometimes 4:30am). My mind raced with all kinds of questions and thoughts. Would people like it? I can’t believe I finally did it. What would my friends think? Oh my God did I really just click “Publish?” Is this a good idea? Is this going to work? And the questions and thoughts rolled on and on and on until I finally told myself to STOP. I had to calm myself down and realize that there is a reason this idea was given to me and I needed to silence the negative thoughts and just do it. So, with a grateful heart, here it is! –krystal
