Thoughts While Creating
Mention the word edge and what immediately comes to mind; falling over, toppling, imagined thoughts that are even more terrifying.
Upon hearing this word, the focus shifts to fear at some level. Ancient mariners held the belief that one could actually sail off the edge of the world and that nothing existed beyond the horizon. Often, the unknown holds us back, it provides an excuse for us to hesitate, procrastinate, and put off living our lives to their full intention Yet there are many opportunities waiting for us, with more given freely each day.
But we must be able to get beyond the fear and to live our lives with an enthusiasm that creates each day new and unafraid. At no other time in our history has mankind been given the gifts as well as the opportunities to participate fully in what is offered.
If you love to cook, don’t let it simmer, love to garden, get dirty, love to paint, let the colors flow. Let go of the fear and be the best at that which stirs your soul.
