Hey there, courageous soul. Today, I want to have a heart-to-heart with you about something that might be weighing heavily on your mind: the daunting prospect of following your dreams when you’re scared, your partner isn’t supportive, and you don’t know where to start. Let me tell you, my friend, you are not alone in feeling this way.

Many of us have stood at this crossroads, paralyzed by fear and uncertainty, wondering if we have what it takes to make our dreams a reality.

But here’s the truth: you are stronger, braver, and more capable than you realize. And while the journey ahead may be challenging, it’s also filled with endless possibilities and opportunities for growth.

First and foremost, I want you to know that it’s okay to be scared. Fear is a natural part of the human experience, especially when we’re stepping into the unknown. But here’s the thing about fear: it only has as much power as we give it. So instead of letting fear hold you back, let it fuel you forward. Let it be the fire that ignites your passion, the driving force behind your determination to pursue your dreams no matter what.

Now, let’s talk about your partner’s lack of support. I know how disheartening and demoralizing it can be to have someone you love and trust not believe in your dreams. But here’s the important thing to remember: your dreams are yours and yours alone. They belong to you, not to anyone else. And while it would be wonderful to have your husband’s support, it’s not a prerequisite for pursuing your dreams. You have every right to follow your heart, even if it means doing so without his approval.

And, as a side note, most folks are not intentionally non-supportive. Your dreams and your drive to achieve them can stir up some things that they may not even recognize – like shame that they aren’t doing the same, or fear that you might leave them if you don’t “need” them anymore. 

So where do you start? That’s the million-dollar question, isn’t it? The truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. But here’s what I can tell you: you start right where you are, with whatever resources you have at your disposal. Maybe it’s taking a small step forward, like doing some research or reaching out to someone who can offer guidance. Or maybe it’s simply giving yourself permission to dream a little bigger and believe in the possibility of what could be.

And remember, you don’t have to do this alone. There are countless resources, communities, and support networks out there filled with people who want to see you succeed.

One such community is She Owns—a place where women from all walks of life come together to lift each other up, offer support and encouragement, and celebrate each other’s successes. It’s a place where you can find the strength, courage, support and inspiration you need to keep moving forward, even when the road ahead seems daunting.

So, my dear friend, I want to leave you with this: you are capable of achieving anything you set your mind to. Your dreams are valid, your voice matters, and your journey is worth it. So take a deep breath, summon your courage, and take that first step forward. You’ve got this.
