Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
Today’s Daily Prompt is a timely reminder and just another boost/confirmation/acknowledgement from the universe that I am definitely on the right path in terms of my freshly realized push towards completion.
I have the unfortunate tendency to allow daily life, work, family demands . . . the internet . . . pretty much anything, to suck away my energy and creativity and to divert me from the things that feed my soul. I recognize, in a purely intellectual kind of way, that procrastination, this avoidance rut I’ve fallen into, has its basis in fear.
Fear of success?
Fear of failure?
I’m really not sure but throughout the majority of 2012, it had a firm stranglehold. Some time ago, daily meditation on this quote helped me get through a very challenging work environment, without killing anyone or losing my sanity. Today, this reminder reinforces the idea that I need to trust in my instincts, continue to believe in myself and give myself the freedom to make mistakes.
We fall, but we get up. And in the process, we grow.
2 Timothy 1:7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. KJV
