I read a great blog today Gail's Fourm about moving through the forest even when we are afraid. Like the writer, I have come to the edge of the forest, just to peer into it, sometimes I have even gone half way in, only to run back to what I perceived as safe. My so called safety has not served me well, instead I have stagnated and fallen further back, only to fail more than if I had just taken the chance and gone through the unfamiliar woods.
Maybe if I accept that I might fail and just keep moving forward. Eventually I'll get to the other side and succeed. Isn't this all we really want, to just get through the loss, the grief, the sadness, the pain... whatever it is that holds us back from being who we are meant to be. Really, isn't there something better if we keep moving forward, I have to believe that there is or there would be no reason to live this life.
