Perhaps it seems obvious, but I didn't know or at least didn't remember until this morning. You see, I had left my makeup in the car last night - not really intentionally, but it was so cold outside all I could think about was getting inside and warming up. Alas, my makeup bag remained in the back seat. When I got it out this morning to put on, I discovered that my mascara brush was frozen. It didn't take long to thaw out or to be able to put on, but found it curious.
It seems to me that there are many moments in my life when I have been similar to the tube of mascara - simply frozen. The question is - how long did I remain in that state?
I believe there have been instances when I was frozen only momentarily, but other cases where I am still frozen. The question then becomes, why?
Why would one choose to stay in the same state or circumstance? Quite simply, the answer is often something like fear. It's a four letter word that holds so much power and yet, I often wonder why or how. Why not, just let go? Why not, just do it? Why remain a prisoner?
My answer today??? My answer today is because it's going to require change. Honestly, the change may not even be great, but there will have to be change and until the fear of remaining the same is greater than the fear of change - nothing happens. As I re-read that sentence it seems quite simple, but the truth is, fear can be paralyzing. I have spent - as I'm sure others have, hours contemplating, dreaming, thinking about the what if's in life. What if we took that leap? Jumped off the cliff? Let it happen? What is the absolute worst thing that would happen? Would my current circumstances or situation be all that different? I know I can exist, survive, be ok with how things are now, so.........perhaps it's time for the leap of faith?
Are you ready for a change?
When I set up my website and blog under the author section it reads "Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview." Whew - cuz that's all I've got for the moment. I'm a pretty simple person who lives life lovingly. I care deeply and am passionate about many things. I have always had a spirit of (I'm going to call it) entrepreneurship so have been self-employed about as much as I've been employed by others. This is a place where I share thoughts, ideas and happenings. I'm finding that sharing my story (life) helps me as much or more than it helps others and I find that empowering. Keep doin' what you love and lovin' what you do! XO-KM
