I can always come up with excuses about why something didn’t go my way.
Reasons, if you want to use a more positive word.
There’s always something to let me off the hook of just not doing the thing I might want to or need to.
Valid. Invalid. Made up or real.
The question always sits the same.
Would I have done it if all the doors were open or would I have let fear sit on my face, dug my heals in and waited til my dying breath to finally pursue the thing I felt drawn to do?
I don’t want to find out. I sit with all the doors open – except for doubt and insecurity beating me up from behind – it’s time to go through with it and try something out.
It’s time to be me.
It’s time to be real.
I have doubts, but sometimes those doubts keep me from walking in really cool things.
It’s time to move.
I never manage to write very much in these five minutes and things sometimes end up feeling more contrived and less spontaneous then I might like or my own version of what’s expected might allow, but I always enjoy the exercise. Click on the picture above to join in today!

Often, I also must force myself to act and ignore all the reasons why I can’t. I’ll pray for you to be real. God bless. Visiting from Five Minute Friday,
