I'd like to tell you all ... life is too short.
Life is too short to spend time in a fruitless relationship.
Life is too short to waste in a dead-end job.
Life is too short to put off the experiences you dream of.
Life is too short not to learn something new each day.
Life is too short to spend endless hours in front of a television.
Life is too short to mindlessly collect 'things' to distract you from whatever it is you'd really like to be doing.
Life is too short for the merry-go-round (unless it is at the amusement park!)
Life is too short for regrets.
Life is to short to live in fear.
Fear of taking a risk.
Fear of the consequences (what really IS the worse thing that could happen and how bad would it really be?)
Fear of failure.
Fear of embarrassment.
Fear of what others will think.
Fear of discomfort.
Fear of tomorrow ruling how you live today.
Friends and readers, I spent many years of my life doing all of the above. I'd just like to tell you that it is okay to stop.
I'm living proof that it can be done. I'm okay. My world still spins. Every day I'm finding a new way. I still don't have a plan. But I'm seeing the light a little more clearly every day.
I hereby declare today "Fearless Friday". I encourage you all to take a step, however small, toward something new.
