It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. Seneca
Had you told me a few weeks ago that I would have such an easy time switching blog providers the way I just did this week-end, I would have laughed in disbelief. As it turns out, it was a lot scarier in my mind, than in reality. Which makes me wonder…
So many goals resembling foggy silhouettes lost in my head, simply waiting for me to attempt to reach them. Truth be told, I. am. simply.
too busy scared. The voices in my head keep telling me:”Such a waste of time, to attempt anything so late in life”. Another favourite I often hear deep within: “Lack of talent would prevent any worthy creation from emerging”.
Self-depreciation is an occupation that often times keeps me busy, especially when it comes to my “artist” self.
This week-end something changed in me, as if a mental switch had been turned on. I am learning to advance towards my goals, regardless of that sinking feeling in my gut. My heart tells me to go ahead and I listen. Too many hours were spent listening to this fear and I am done with it. I have chosen to embrace it instead of letting it control what I wish to do with my life.
Writing here now I still feel the fear, and I am learning to tame it. Deep breaths…
I know more than ever before that am on the right track, even if sometimes I still doubt it. Embracing my fear is the way to move forward toward those goals I see ahead.
Do you have any fear waiting to be embraced? I’d love to know, dear friend
