Look around and pick up something within reach. An object. Any object. Now turn off the light. Guess what. It’s still there: unchanged. You’re just experiencing it from a different perspective. The only thing that might have changed was a fear of the dark kicking in, or, as possible, the comfort of knowing something was there, because you were holding it.
Truth is, everything is an unknown until you choose to find your light source. You can trip and fall just as easily on a sidewalk at noon as in a dark attic at midnight.
You can’t allow yourself to be held captive by fear. To be controlled by the gut-wrenching, sweaty palm “what ifs”. First and foremost, you must envision your goals. Your dreams. Once they are clear in your mind’s eye, they’re no longer hiding in the dark. They’re within your grasp. In light: plain as day. It may represent change, but many worthwhile things do. You can’t learn to swim on the sidewalk. Go. Do. Night or day. It’s not a leap of faith. It’s having faith in your leap.
It’s all part of the adventure,
