I have been writing about moving forward and taking risks to become that woman I always thought I was going to be and I actually have! I have been putting on my big girl britches and just going for it. The difference now is that I am really taking the time to think before I act/react. If I am going to go in the direction I want to I want to focus on doing it the right way and in a way that I can look back and not regret. Every day I am feeling better and better about my choices. I can see the light not at the end of the tunnel but there is light in places I had been leaving dark for a very long time. As the days go by I feel a new sense of empowerment that I thought I had to give up. I am excited about what I am doing and where I am going. I can only hope that the more I try to reach my goals I can stay on the path I have intended or maybe discover some I didn’t even know I wanted.
I was very scared to take these steps in the beginning and almost thought I would just blog about my discontent and never really go through with it. I will be honest about that because I think many people feel that way. I think one of the worst things you can do to yourself is get comfortable. Once you are comfortable you have nothing left to push for or be scared about. That isn’t good. You need to be kept on your toes in all aspects of your life so you can constantly work to do better. I think that is going to be my new philosophy “Stay on my toes” this is also an excellent way to rationalize getting good use out of my ginormous shoe collection.
I think we should all stay on our toes and see where it gets us. Even if things don’t end up the way you imagined you will have learned and that is the most important thing. You will never know if you don’t try and you will never succeed if you give up before you start so STAY ON YOUR TOES!
