a note to myself

May 15, 2013

What is it exactly about taking risks that causes you to feel so petrified? Is it the thought of jumping off the edge into something unknown that makes you quiver? Is it the outcome  that intangible conclusion  that makes your heart flutter? Can it be that you're afraid that the foundation you've built may be compromised? The probability that if you take the next necessary step, you'll end up falling. Does it have something to do with completing this on your own? That this is your decision to make and no one else can make it for you. What exactly causes you to feel so petrified about taking a chance? Why are you inconclusive as to what you want to do? Why don't you already know the answers? Why can't you make the decision? 

What do you want to do?

  1. Why is it so hard to just jump in? Take that chance? Even if we know there are a million reasons we shouldn't we do also know that there are many reasons to take that chance.
    Eh I NEED to remember this. Thank you.

  2. Beautiful photos but even more beautiful words. I know this is a note to yourself, but it speaks volumes to me and my fears as well. I'm still learning that day by day, the answer to quieting fear is concentrating on love as it is the opposite of fear. It's a slow change but one I'm willing to stick with. Perhaps love is also what you need to overcome that fear of the unknown as well. Thanks for the words Zoe

  3. This is a really moving post. I don't even know how to put this in a deeper sounding way, but it's so incredibly relevant to my life right now. Thank you for this!

  4. This is me right now. Desperately needing to shift but absolutely petrified of what it takes of what the move might mean. I find that now more than ever this Anaïs Nin quote resonates with me and where I am: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” It still doesn't make me less afraid or uncertain. I hope you feel brave soon.

    I also really love your trousers :-)

    I'm glad you're writing here again. More than you'll ever know.

  6. It's crazy to me that I came across this blog...randomly went directly to this post...the day after I lost all kinds of sleep asking myself the SAME exact thing: Why can't you just make a decision.

    Gorgeous photos...but the words touched me the most!

  7. You are such a vision of health and beauty! And thank you for your inspiring words of wisdom. I think everyone can relate a little to the curses of being indecisive!
    Hope you're well!
