Trying this again.

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to type a blog that I felt comfortable publishing. Today, I realized that it was because I’ve been scared to. So much of my life has changed since my last post. 

I’ve been out of school for a year and a half. I’d gone from writing long-form content every week about my life and interests, to writing very different content for my clients every day. Don’t get me wrong; this is in no way a negative situation, I love having the opportunity to be the voice of so many different industries, all within the field of work that I chose to be in but there came a point where I began to doubt my abilities. I began to wonder if it was possible to have lost the ability to simply write for fun. 

Was that a foolish fear? Maybe. But either way, I was feeling it until just now. 

I think it’s because of something I overheard my Nonna tell my brother today. for context, they were talking about his dream of becoming a professional soccer player. 

“Massimo, you can’t be afraid. You just have to be brave and do it sometimes,” she said. 

I know that this is a common mentality and a common motivational sentence, but it felt different hearing it come from someone you love (and not directed at you) rather than from a GaryVee Instagram Reel. 

So here I am facing the imposter syndrome and publishing this to my blog.
