That would be my biggest problem. Being afraid to fail. It’s why I don’t go for everything I want in life. Why I often dwell on the ideas of things that I want to accomplish and hesitate. I have a creative spirit inside of me, but I’m scared to let my ideas flourish. Isn’t that silly? I wish I could just leap without looking sometimes. I wish I wasn’t afraid to fail. I know it’s hindered so many things. The biggest thing I’m telling myself right now? SO WHAT?! So what if I fail? At least I will never have to wonder, “What if?” So what if I fail? At least I gave it my best try. At least I can learn from my mistakes, my failures.
You know what happens when you try? You just might succeed. You just might discover something beautiful. It’s never easy, but it’s worth it. God will open the doors that are meant to be open, the exact right doors. I know He’s protected me from opportunities that just aren’t right for me and has provided opportunities I never thought I would ever get.
So GO for it. Go for whatever it is you’re hesitating about. Share your dreams with others. Write them down on paper. See what happens. Don’t hinder that creative spirit. It’s amazing what can happen If you just let your dreams live and move and breathe. You have those dreams for a reason, explore them. Stop giving fear the power.
