"Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears." ~ Les Brown
Questions to Ponder:
I was the teen who would go quarry jumping with her friends, but stand aside in fear instead of jumping. Then, at the last minute before we were leaving, I'd finally jump. And then I'd be disappointed that I wasted all that time in fear instead of having fun. I had a similar experience this past weekend, and when I was standing aside in fear, watching my colleagues and friends "take the leap" and sign up for slots at a talent show, I remembered how it felt as a teen. I made the decision to jump sooner, to have more FUN, to leave that event with no regrets! For the first time in my life, I went up on stage ALONE and sang a song. That exhilarating feeling of jumping off the rocks was the same I felt when I finished up that song on Saturday night. I'm so glad I jumped--sooner this time!
