Moving On

Quit stopping yourself!

I’m hiking. This screams through my mind. Breaking through the fear and conditioned thoughts flowing through me. I’ve paused to stare at the creek covered with a thin layer of ice. Right off the bat my mind begins racing for ways to go back instead of crossing.

Pause.

Breakthrough. Why am I not moving forward? What is going to happen? The ice cracks? So what! How deep is that water? Is it raging? Now there is a shallow babbling stream under the ice. Could I fall down? Possibly, but then I must just get up. Stop anticipating. Stop letting fear keep you from moving forward. From creating your life. From experiencing life.

At many moment we can change our thoughts. We can change ourselves. How we act. How we treat people. Who we want to be.

Now we can change!
