IF YOUR DREAMS DON"T SCARE YOU,
THEY AREN'T BIG ENOUGH.
I've been thinking about this lately! Such an affirmation to see your post. I've taken big chances for dreams in my past but realized that I've been playing it safe lately. For example, I applied to law school, yay. But I only applied to one school, the same school where I received my bachelor's degree. I was not daring greatly. So, just before the deadlines, I applied to four other schools. I may still go to 'my' school but it feels great to be scared again. I had an instructor that said, "If you're not scared, you can't call it bravery." Thanks for sharing this post, Wendy!
Well put. I think it is great that you realized you were sabotaging yourself. THAT, in itself, is growth. When I would do this sort of thing it made me think if I was sabotaging my self or if it was my unconscious telling me, this is not what I WANTED to do but what I, my family, or society was telling me I SHOULD want. Learned the new mantra "I will not should on myself today." It changed my direction to the real me. If it's what I wanted then I would mantra myself with "Feel the fear and do it anyway". Thanks for responding. It meant a lot. Good luck in whatever you choose.
