There are no guarantees in this life, so when we hold back we do so at the risk of never fully blossoming.

From October 1, 2010

As somewhat a companion piece to yesterday’s entry, here are my latest thoughts:
Is there something you want to do but fear is holding you back? Maybe you have a dream to paint. If you’ve been told that you have some talent, if someone has seen that talent and encouraged you, if someone you don’t know has actually purchased something you’ve painted that should tell you something. Don’t stop doing what gives you pleasure, what gives someone else pleasure. This lifetime you’re living now is short so don’t hold back.

Is your dream something different? Perhaps you’ve been told from an early age that you have a talent for writing. Then pursue that. Let nothing stand in your way.

Whatever your dream, pursue it. Do what you need to do. Don’t let fear stand in your way!

Maybe you have your heart set on something else. A dream trip? What are you waiting for? Make it happen. Don’t let fear stand in your way! There are no guarantees, so live THIS lifetime like it will be your last!

Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!

Back To Fiction
