"Very often a risk is worth taking simply for the sake of taking it. There is something enlivening about expanding our self-definition, and a risk does exactly that. Selecting a challenge and meeting it creates a sense of self-empowerment that becomes the ground for further successful challenges. Viewed this way, running a marathon increases your chances of writing a full-length play. Writing a full-length play gives you a leg up on a marathon. Complete the following sentence. "If I didn't have to do it perfectly, I would try______." ~The Artist's Way Every Day, Julia Cameron
A risk doesn't have to be something bold...it can just be a small step outside of your comfort zone. For me right now, it's about purging and getting rid of everything i have been so attached to....it's also about letting go of unfulfilled desires/hopes that i am only holding onto even though it's time to move on. It's about recognizing who you are NOW, and not holding onto who you WERE. The rest will follow......I just have to take it step by step and see what unfolds.
