Simple but True

This is short and sweet, but it’s what I’ve got for today.

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. Fears are paper tigers.

Amelia Earhart, a Leo whose birthday was yesterday

I saw that quote on twitter and it struck me for its irrefutable truth. The places in my life where I have longing, or a desire that feels far from being fulfilled, or a silent grudge towards myself are the places I have gotten stuck and rather than devise a new route, I’ve stopped.

 All it takes is a little step one day, and a little step the next. And if I am unwilling to take that action I have two questions for me: is this something I really want or am I thinking I should want it when my heart says otherwise? and/or  what am I scared of that has me sitting on my hands? Those fears are paper tigers, imagined outcomes, and I can be a lion and shoo them away, with faith in life as my biggest roar.

If you, like me, like Amelia Earhart, are a Leo, happy birthday! May I suggest heading here where there’s a perfume designed just for us big cats.

    Happy Birthday. I couldn’t agree more. My issue is that I block myself from even conceiving the dream in the first place.
