do it scared

scaresdo. it. scared.

the thing that terrifies you.
taking that first step.
letting go of control.
trusting.

do it
even if you
do it scared.

what’s the worst that can happen?
rejection?
disappointment?
someone saying “no”?

those things aren’t so bad, are they?
we’ve lived through them before…

boldness
bravery
endurance
fortitude
perseverance….
courage

courage, not so much as in the absence of fear
but courage in spite of fear, even because of fear

as John Wayne (not my dad) said: “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.”

do
it
scared

do it…
that dream, that little crumb of an idea

apply to grad school…
if you never try you’ll never know
(my application is submitted, by the way)

grow into who you were made to be…
you are never to old to set another goal, or dream a new dream. – c.s.lewis

if you wait for the perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done.
do it now.
what have you got to lose, really?
more importantly….look what you have to gain!!

not feeling stuck
freedom
new possibilities
making a difference
being a part of something bigger than you are
purpose
meaning
intention

take that risk.
trust in the Author of your life.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11

put on your Big Boots

Do
It
Scared

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.” – Winnie the Pooh

each step with grace…
