Today I cried…..
My niece inspired me so much today. She and her family are launching out into the deep after a dream. (http://www.proceedtoparadise.com/).
I cried because at 20 something she isn’t afraid to take a chance on her dreams, but at 40 something I have been. So many things I have “pondered” doing but never acted upon. Dreams kept silent, Ideas never pursued.
FEAR is more than just a bump in the dark; or a shadow in the dark. FEAR is that whisper “what if it doesn’t work”, “what if my friends laugh”. FEAR is that thing that keeps you from pursuing unspoken dreams or trying new things.
So, I cried, but when I stopped crying I stepped out into “something new”. I published my very first blog page (something I have pondered for a while) Today, I looked FEAR in the face and said “OH WELL, I am going to give it a try anyway!”.
Today, I opened the door to new things, possibilities and waters uncharted. Today I said “Okay” to the voice of adventure and discovery that has been whispering inside of me.
I don’t know what tomorrow holds. I accept that all outcomes may not be what I want or the way that I want; but I am willing to take the step and see.
I am excited about my future and all that life brings.
