” We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” FDR
Where does it fit? Do any of us really know where their puzzle piece of life truly belongs? Do we ever really know for sure if the path that we have taken was the one we were destined to follow? How will we ever really know if we don’t surrender to the fear of putting ourselves out there, of reaching for our dreams, of following the path less traveled?
Was it all written in my script that I was given when I took my first breath of this air that keeps whirling me around and around, leading me in so many directions. This direction: safe, secure, normal, content, cozy. That direction: Unknown, Wild, Dangerous, Terrifying. Maybe it’s just the journey, not the destination. I don’t think I know exactly. I just know I don’t want any walls prisoning me. I just know that in order to really see or be seen, one has to remove the blinders; life’s distorted sunglasses that keep obstructing the desired vision. Will I go the distance to the other side of the dark? Can my mountain of insecurities be overcome? Will I turn the page to the new level of multicolored dreams awakening me, empowering me, every step of the way?
One step forward.
Another step further.
No more cracks in the sidewalk. I will achieve the unachievable and I will not look back at footprints that walked over me, at hands that pulled me back, at eyes behind sunglasses that tried to blind me of my strength.
You have to be willing to put yourself out there, uncover the layers… take off your sunglasses. You can’t play hide and seek with the stars forever. I took my sunglasses off and I lost them in the dust when the wind blew. Will you?..
