I wish I may, I wish I might—have the courage to do the things that I strive for every night.
I have many dreams being added to a list, but few seem to be accomplished, as of yet. My goal list seems to be getting longer with few check marks to show my work. I keep striving towards any of them only to feel as if I am making slow progress.
There’s a post that I saw, it had a picture of a baby turtle, the caption read, “It doesn’t matter your speed as long you are going forward.” Positive thinking, yes?
But, alas, the fear is taking its toll again. My thoughts question whether I am making the same mistakes; they question whether I am making the right decisions, and they have me thinking in circles.
I wish that I had the courage to find answers.
I wish that I had the courage to stand up to fear.
I find myself staring at what needs to be done, frozen by fear of failure, unable to even lift a hand to start. I fear the outcome of starting a new project. I fear the unknown of whether I will fail or succeed. I fear a new beginning.
I am stuck in the past. I seem to be fixating on my past failures.
I need to let go of this fear. I need to steady my footing, grit my teeth and push through. But saying that and putting those words into action are two very different things.
I wish upon a star tonight—help me to be strong, help me to be brave.
It was Carrie Fisher that said, “Take your broken heart and make it into art.”
Lord knows what kind of art can come out of my broken heart, but I shall wish for the best. Thankfully for me, God knows every star in the heavens; He has heard my wish and knows my desires.
Look out world—here I come!
Here is to the grown-ups fighting off fears of the past—May we find courage to take life’s challenges head on!
