It is true I am full of dreams. Sometimes I notice that I am scared to realise them, and then I think of the Mary Oliver quote from The Summer Day: ‘Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?’ It seems everyone is or needs a life coach these days. Perhaps people feel they need a life coach because really they need to just look at themselves as recognise that they only have one life and yet are full of unfulfilled dreams and schemes. I know I am, but I don’t need a life coach. When I was younger I felt fearless almost. Sometimes I feel that I need to recapture that fearlessness. Other days I know that I will always be richer for the experiences that took away my fearlessness for a while. I am a multitude of emotions; conflicting and co-existing simultaneously. That’s creativity and I don’t mind. I will always remember the Georgia O’Keeffe quote that went something like this: ‘I’ve always been absolutely terrified every single moment of my life, and I’ve never let it stop me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.’ Such power in just a few words. Talk about ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway. ‘ ~ Susan Jeffers ~ another great quote from a woman.
Feel it all, accept it, move with it, be with it, love it even, and never let it, whatever it is, stop you from reaching.
