We all have some sort of bucket list filled with a variety of different items. These are things we want, wish and hope to someday do. So, when push comes to shove what is keeping us from actually narrowing the list down? Yes, okay, maybe somethings aren't feasible at the time because of resources available, but I am almost certain that's not the case for it all. Whether we realize it or not, fear comes into play and holds us back.
Ask yourself one question, what would you do if you were not afraid? The answer is probably most everything you physically could on your list right?
Now before we go further, fear is and takes on a different meaning for everyone. Which means this is all based on your definition. For me, fear is not what happens on Halloween. It is when I am nervous to take a risk. I am a conservative person and like to play by the rules. It's no secret that it is easier to stay with what you know then step out of your comfort zone.
I have gotten better at taking risks although I'm still not great. My rational will come out and try to eliminate me from doing so. The thinking that has helped me take more risks is knowing that everything that happens, happens for a reason. And I have always found it important to live in the moment. This leaves me two choices; sit at home or take a chance.
If fear wasn't a factor, which it doesn't have to be, I would do everything and anything that I could! But, since it doesn't have to be a factor let's not allow it to be! How does that sound?? Together, let's take a chance!
