Be Brave..
Take Risks ..
Nothing can substitute
experience … Paul Coelho

Generally speaking, I have always considered myself to be pretty “BRAVE” about taking “RISKS” in this life. And for the most part, it has served me well. In life you have to take RISKS if there is hope for change.

And yes I am looking for change.

I don’t much like where I am presently.

WIth that said, I am not as young, or carefree as I used to be. These days, I feel like I’ve been playing a game of chess rather then actually living. Certainly, I am not as impulsive as I used to be. I am a planner, a DEEP THINKER ( sometimes to the point of OVER-THINKING matters ) I procrastinate out of fear of doing something stupid. Always thinking about the consequences of my actions. Never leave the house, without going thru an unwritten check list. Don’t do that. You might hurt yourself! Don’t do that. You might offend someone… Don’t ever let em see ya sweat. OR cry! Or fail! BS! 🙂

In recent months I have come to the realization that this kind of doubt and fear IS stifling!

This is that aspect of myself wtih whom I, and those who know me, relate most with. No, I can’t go back in time, but I can reach deep, and rekindle that fire that will let me go out there and live again!

Like I said, AMEN!

Have a Wonderful Friday Everyone!
