â€œPeople are never more insecure than when they become obsessed with their fears at the expense of their dreams.â€
Fear is a sneaky beast. Lurking in the shadows until its ready to come charging, full speed ahead, to knock you down.Â Crippling. Blinding. Gnawing. Numbing. FEAR. Fear knocked me down this weekend.
fear of failure
fear of the unknown
But I refuse to let this fear keep me down.Â It’s 2010. And I am going to SOAR.Â That’s my mantra. I am spreading my wings.Â I don’t know where my flight path leads.Â I have some idea of where I’m going but with a whole wide world out there my options are vast.
Today its a photography business (because as you know I love to take pictures!). Tomorrow its “maybe I’ll write a book” (but really I have no clue what I’d write about – grief? loss? coping? photography? technology? teaching? giving? i have no clue…). The next minute its a desire to help others tackle grief (through photography therapy maybe?? Is there such a thing??!!).
My creativity is just waiting to be unleashed.Â Â I keep pondering a fire starter session with Danielle LaPorte and then think little old me with my unfocused and underdeveloped ideas is in no place to be even going there.Â What I do know is that I want to be inspired.Â So, keep on inspiring me friends. Help me pick my path and really take off.Â I want something big. I want to own it. Create it. I want to kiss fear goodbye. And say hello to my dreams.
