the days are getting longer here in alaska!!!! i love it!!! i am so ready for spring i can't hardly stand it. the first morning light arrives just before 8am and the evening dims around 7pm. i can't wait to wake up with the sun in my eyes!!
i have been reading the word fearless quite a lot lately. from one of my favorite blogs (thank you, julia) to a good friends new tattoo, it seems to be screaming at me. screaming at me to make some changes. i never realized how much my life is trapped by fear. fear of driving, fear for my family, fear of the creative life i love, fear of flying, fear of saying the wrong thing!!!! and the list goes on!!!!
i don't want to get to the end of my life and find that i just lived the length of it. i want to have lived the width of it as well.
i know this change will not come over night or even within the next year, but i am completely aware that a change needs to be made. i need to let go a little (or a lot) and do the things i have dreamed of. trust that my family will be safe and my children will make the right decisions in life. be ok to travel to the places i love most and drive to work in the morning without stress!!!
"being fearless isn't being 100% not fearful, its being terrified but you jump anyway..."
i will keep you posted on my journey:)
"becoming fearless isn't the point. thats impossible. its learning how to control your fear and be free from it."
happy monday loves
"fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again...even though every time you've tried before you've lost."
today my mind is all over the place!! again!!! i have so many thoughts swirling around in my head. i don't know where to begin as i sit and stare at the beautiful sunflowers i bought myself at the store today. it is amazing how much fresh sunflowers can brighten a dreary snowy day.
i know that everything happens for a reason, everyone has a story, and everyone reacts differently to the things going on in life.
and hopeful that the rest of the week will be filled with joy.
