Guest Post!...Irene

Guest postin it still over here at Dailypolkadots. Say Hello to Irene!...
...................................................
Greetings, Kelli’s lovely readers! I’m Irene and I blog over at {I.R.E.N.E} – Inspiration From The Little Things. (Yup, that’s me in the above picture!)
To be honest with you, this is the first time I ever did a guest post. The experience is both exciting and challenging for me. Exciting, because I’m the one assigned to supposedly “entertain” a different realm of readers. But challenging at the same time because man, I never thought coming up with a topic to write for my post was difficult! Nonetheless, I took the challenge and now here I am, shamelessly promoting myself. Haha!
And now to reveal to you more truths about this blogging gig… As I am writing this post, at the back of my mind, I am secretly hoping to be liked, appreciated, and accepted. I had a sudden surge of fear of being rejected because heck, I’m not a fashion and beauty blogger, I don’t have any precious handmade jewelry to show you, and I am nothing else but plain boring, looking like the picture below on most days of the week…
In fact, I nearly refused to participate in Kelli’s guest posting stint. Yet I went on because stepping into untested waters can be quite an adventure (well, to me at least!).
I guess this feeling of self doubt can have us conquered at some points in our lives. And I suppose the reason behind this is that we are our worst critics. We know ourselves too much—that much to be able to tell ourselves what we can and cannot do.
But screw your inner critic and you’re bound to experience life the way you never thought possible!
*Rolls eyes*
*Scratches head*
*Look of disbelief*
It’s easier said than done, right?
One thing I discovered about this inner critic is that she’s here to stay (whether I like it or not). But another lesson I learned is that I can teach myself to ignore her while she’s trying to piss me off. Well, I know it is almost impossible not to listen to her all the time, but imagine what would happen to me if I agreed with everything she said, right? :-)
Thank you for taking time to read my very first guest post! Visit me at my blog anytime! Thank you so much, Kelli, for this great opportunity! Take care everyone!
