Thought I’d share this image and note of inspiration with you all today.
*Let your dreams be bigger than your fears.
In my opinion, fear steals from us. It does steal strength from me. There are fears I don’t mention, and sometimes they do stand in the way of moving forward to make some of my dreams come true. Regardless, I do my best to keep fear away from my creativity. Otherwise, I might never create. (Remember, my muse carries a lasso and knows how to use it.)
Fear can be inspiring, especially if you’re a stubborn soul like me, so yes, sometimes it drives me. Sometimes it keeps me safe.
There are times when fear is good. It must keep its watchful place at the heart’s controls. ~Aeschylus
Do you let some fears stand in your way? Am I alone in this?
There are other fears I overcome like when I’m ready to publish a book. Fear and nerves rule me for a few days before and up to the day of publication when I hit publish with a shaky finger.
Authors and other creatives, do you feel the nerves and maybe a tinge of fear of what happens after your baby goes out into the world?
Oh, there are other fears I can accept. Let’s use “change.” I know I need change in my life and have learned to deal with what comes. That doesn’t mean I always like it, but I accept. Deal. Live with it. Albeit, I’ve had plenty of major changes in the past decade. Well, longer than a decade to teach me this.
How about you? Do you think about change or take the “whatever happens, happens” path?
“Let your dreams be BIGGER than your fears.”
Is it safe to say this is easier said than done? However, I believe it’s a great goal to work toward and consciously strive to let our dreams be bigger than our fears.
*I’m unsure who to credit for the quote. I’ve found a longer version of this quote with two different names as the author and also as “unknown.” I’ll leave it as it is for now. If someone knows who wrote it, please let me know.
