Oh my Darling, what if you Fly?

Friday, September 18, 2015



If you have read this quote, there is likely some aspect in your life that you can relate. It could be taking that new job promotion, starting a new hobby, making your health a priority-the possibilities are endless.

I believe that we hesitate because we have this little nagging thought in the back of our mind, a fear of failure. We would often times rather be content in our discontent than risk "failing". I'm will be the first one to say that I have felt this way, more than once. I have "failed" more than once. You know what I did? In those moments I picked my ass up and chalked it up as a learning experience.

Currently I am at a point where I have lost a fair amount of weight, and I'm thinking to myself-what if I just stopped here? This feels cozy, Comfortable. I like the way I look. I like the way I can shop, and admittedly, I like the way people respond to me.

Simultaneously-I have this other thought-what if I continue into uncharted waters. What if, and hang with me for a second because this is a ludicrous idea, I keep pushing myself to be even better? Allowing yourself to stay stagnant does not do any service to you, your family, or your community, simply because growth pushes you to be the best version of yourself. Continuously growing, moving forward.

Believe in yourself. You are capable of doing more than you ever imagined was possible. :)

    Well said! Thanks for sharing! You're right that it's important to keep moving forward, and a lot of us have a fear of failure. We need to take a leap or risk here and there and keep believing in ourselves.
