“Willingness opens the doors to knowledge, direction, and achievement. Be willing to know, be willing to do, be willing to create a positive result. Be willing, especially, to follow your dream.” Peter McWilliams
“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” – Alan Cohen
We as humans tend to stick with what we know. Venturing off into the unfamiliar is just plain scary. I’ve learned over the years that you need you take risks in order to succeed. It doesn’t happen to those who play it safe. Take the jump, the leap of faith and put fear aside. It’s the number one thing that holds us back from what we truly want in life. Rejection is a rite of passage and will eventually be overcome. Change is power. Be powerful!
“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.” -R. Buckminster Fuller
You know, it takes a lot out of someone to blog. Take me for example. I love to write. It relaxes me and gives me the chance to just let go and be free with my thoughts. But finding the time is tough. Being a full-time mom and working full time takes a toll on energy levels and one would prefer to be awake in order to write something that makes some sense. Unlike what I’m doing right now.
But I have a goal. One of many. But this one will remain simple and attainable (hopefully). I will write. Even if it’s just mere blabbing. It will be something. So bare with me while I gain some footing on this world of blogging. It will be quite the journey and adventure!
A little quote to settle the day:
“Give your dream a chance to live. Nurture it daily with the seeds of determination, inspiration, drive, and creativity. Feed it with passion, faith, patience, and positive expectation. Allow it to blossom by surrounding yourself with people who are doing things with their lives, and who believe in working hard to make things happen.” – Les Brown
