Has there been a time in your life when you felt like jumping in with both feet, not even thinking about the outcome?
What stopped you? Fear of failure? Fear of not being perfect?
It’s like this sign says: Should I stay or should I go?
No one really knows the answer – not even you. Sometimes we just need to take the plunge and see what happens next. We need to take that leap of faith. Faith in ourselves and knowing that we will be ok no matter what comes next.
I got paralyzed by fear several years ago when I lost my home. I didn’t know where I was going to live or what would happen next. But it was during that challenging time that I discovered the most important thing of all – it’s not where I lived, but who was in my life. It was during all that craziness that my family, friends, and sometimes even strangers, gathered around me to say:
“You’re going to be ok.”
Through that experience, I learned that the only thing we can really do is enjoy the ride. It’s during these crazy times that we begin to prioritize and figure out what is really important to us.
So back to:
Should I stay or should I go?
You won’t really know the answer until you try it. So do something – anything. Pick one. Then be brave and bold and give it your all. Don’t let fear of failure hold you back. Not ever! Scream to the world: “Here I am, ready or not, and I will enjoy every minute of this crazy experience we call life.”
