Hey! What drives you wild? What gets you excited, nervous, a bit afraid? When was the last time you had butterflies in your stomach? How often do you step outside of your comfort zone? How often do you try something that isn't a sure thing?
When we do more than we have previously, we often resist. We resist the possibility of failure. We also resist the possibility of success more often than we know. You know you are doing more than you have before because you get nervous, you may feel anxiety, you might not be able to think about much else until you have done "it" whatever "it" is. Whatever is in your mind as the thing you are afraid to do must be done.
Jump, dive, run towards the things that make you feel. We have become comfortably numb and most of us are not aware of this. We have learned how to navigate the world based on what we know, not where we want to go. Do we even know what we want, where we want to go, how to get there? A great place to start is by asking ourselves what we are afraid of. Maybe it is rejection. Maybe it is love. Maybe it is being organized. Maybe it is looking incompetent. Whatever it is may just be what you need to wake up, feel again and move forward. Safe isn't living. Safe is false, death, failure. Safe is nowhere for a living breathing thing. Life, in and of itself, is a risk. When we decided to incarnate we decided to be risky. To resist the gift of excitement, nervousness or feelings of anxiety/anticipation is to decide to stay exactly where you are and miss out on where you could be.
Go on, feel the nervousness, get the butterflies and feel the freak-outedness. No excuses, no regrets.
