Yes, that’s exactly what I tell myself. Mind you, this is not my true self talking to me. This is the frightened ego that is trying to keep me “safe”!
I’ve been having some tests to my courage lately of stepping into the unknown. It’s a scary place and I’ve been beating myself up about not taking the leap. I’m moving along with baby steps and I get comfortable with the space I’m in. Sure enough, it’s not long before that knot is in my stomach and it’s time to assess why? The fear is setting in because it’s time to move out into a new space. And when that happens this quote by Anais Nin always comes to mind:
“And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk to bloom.”
OK! Time to open that door and move out of my comfort zone into a whole new territory. Time for more challenges and learning. I KNOW that’s the best course for me and what I’m to do, BUT….
I also know that each time I open that door and walk through that the discoveries I make are astounding. I not only learn something new about myself, but I also learn so much about others and a whole new world that I’ve discovered.
When I share this message with someone during a TarotAstrology reading, it’s also for myself. And I love sharing this message. It’s a small kick in the behind to get moving and TRUST! Trust that it will all be better than expected, not just ok. Trust that I am guided and protected. Trust that I’m on this adventure in living. Trust that I’m right where I’m supposed to be.
So when I get to this point, I am reminded of another quote by Anais Anin:
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
So open the door, walk into the adventure, embrace the rewards and
