Monday Quotable

I told you in the last Weekly Weigh In that I was feeling stuck in many areas of my life. That has shifted a bit in terms of weight loss (tell you all about that tomorrow) but everywhere else, I'm feeling a little powerless. There are so many things I want for my life and there are ways to get there but I'm frozen at the edge of my current path and staring at my dreams off in the distance, just across the valley. It's a scary place to be and I think fear is keeping me stagnant and focused on the things I can control. Why? Because all that's separating me from the next step is risk...or a total lack of knowledge. Deciding where we want to live next, how best to expand our family, and our respective next career moves are all looming over our heads. They're huge decisions but we've done all the ground work. All that's left is to take the first step/make the leap. Maybe we're not ready but the desire for a breakthrough is starting to grow stronger than fear and it makes stagnant living the most uncomfortable thing in the world. Today's quote reminds me that you don't have to be "ready." You don't have to make dumb decisions but you can't let the lack of a sure thing kill your drive. At the end of the day, nothing worth having is sure, predictable or easily controlled. Here's to taking the leap of faith. Happy Monday!
