Will you take the risk?
Every choice we make in life is followed by a
payoff or a consequence.
If we never take a risk or step out of our comfort zone
we would never truly be able to experience
some of the greatest joys life has to offer.
If we never give ourselves a chance to succeed,
we never will.
If we never ask the question,
the answer is always no.
If we never take the shot,
we will never make a basket.
If we never reach out in love,
true love will continue to elude us.
If we never test what we are capable of,
we will never know our achievable success.
If we allow our fears of failure, rejection or commitment to
keep us from trying, we will always be controlled
by our fears.
Where are you in your life right now?
Are you happy with your current circumstance?
What are you willing to do about it,
What is holding you back,
I'm guessing it is probably fear.
Fear is what holds us back most of the time.
Staying where you are even if it is not a safe/happy place
is often less scary than reaching for something joyful
because it requires taking that risk.
Even if you have been in this place for your whole life,
there is a way out. Will it be easy, I am also guessing no;
however, will it be worth it, I know first hand.....YES!
Here's the catch, it may take a really long time
to get to where you want to be.
You may have to travel through some deep trenches
and climb some steep hills.
At times you will probably feel trapped and
too weak to go on.
DO NOT GIVE UP!!!!!
One thought at a time,
one breath at a time
and ultimately, one step at a time.
What is the payoff or the consequence.
Go back two posts ago,
read and reread until you
see yourself as the face of recovery!
Where there is a will, there is a way!!!!!
Be inspired, be awesome and BE YOU!
Spring has sprung at Ben's cemetery.
In spite of the frozen infertile ground,
this sign of new life springs forth.
Frozen or not, bloom where you are planted!
Most Divine Creator
of all that is seen and unseen;
watch over all who are searching for peace
in their lives.
Help them to know that you are only a thought away
and can be called upon at all times
to help with the strength that is necessary for change to occur.
Fill their hearts and souls with the knowing
that you are always with them,
guiding them toward greener pastures.
Help them to recognize the signs you
place along their paths as reminders of
your never-ending gracious love.
Love and Light for the journey
I love and admire you all for every first step
