not waiting to feel ready

Yesterday I led my first workshop.
I hadn’t felt ‘ready’ up until that point.
Did I feel ready when 12 pairs of eyes were looking back at me as I was speaking, without having the crutch of leading movement? Not really.
But, that feeling of not being ready doesn’t mean I wasn’t capable, or should have waited longer.
Not feeling ready doesn’t always mean we aren’t.
Sometimes not feeling ready is self-doubt or perfectionism dressed up in a different outfit.
I’m setting myself an intention to not always wait until I feel ready for things, to let growth come from the doing rather than the waiting.
To create more, share more and realise when i'm standing in my own way.
