I hope you enjoyed the diverse guest bloggers who were kind enough to share their posts here over these past two weeks! Today, though, my own posts are back!
Someone I know really well was talking with me the other day about important changes she wanted to make in her life. I’d asked her once, what are you afraid of? and on this day, she had the answer. She knew what was standing in her way.
When we see solidly-built walls standing in our way what we’re really seeing is fear.
Fear. It’s the thing responsible for keeping us from moving forward. It convinces us that treading water is just fine.
It keeps us stuck.
Hey, look, change can be difficult. It can be scary to give up the comfort of familiarity for the unknown. Even if we’re stuck, at least we know what we’re stuck with. The unknown is a different story and we don’t know it yet.
What if it doesn’t work out?
To that I can only say, what if it DOES?
So, ok. If staying where you are is ok with you, if you don’t feel that the potential that change could bring is worth the risk? By all means, don’t make that change. Stay where you are.
But if you’re tired of being stuck? if you think you’ll go crazy if you have to stay in your situation another minute, whatever it is?
Walk past that wall. Open the door to new possibilities.
Chances are, you’ll be happy with what you find.
But you’ll never know unless you take that chance.
Here’s some inspiration from ABBA. And I’m on my way home! I’ll be back here on Monday, in person. Don’t forget to come visit! Also, over the coming weeks I’ll be sharing a few posts and photos from my trip to Portugal. I hope you’ll tune in. As usual, thank you so much for visiting, reading and commenting.
