asking for it anyway


I sit and stare at the screen in front of me,
eyes blurry from not blinking,
and I think to myself,
That thing I want
I am utterly and completely unready.

And although the sudden lack of confidence frightens me in the moment,
I am certain that I join the multitude of women that have come before me,
wanting that thing that’s just out of reach,
and yet,
knowing they may not be ready for the very thing their asking, ask for it anyway.

But really, who’s ever ready?

Your post made me think of my sister's favorite quote: "If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin." -Ivan Turgenev

Jess, you will be wonderful when it is your time. I can feel it.
