There’s a cliff…

There’s a cliff…

I’m blindfolded, standing at the edge, unknowing…
To my left I hear; “Stop! Don’t take another step, you’ll fall!”

To my right I hear; “Go for it! Take a leap of FAITH! BELIEVE! You’ll be fine!

I hesitate… I listen to the words, thinking my options through in my head, trying to reason with myself, and it comes to this…

No matter how you say it, there are only TWO outcomes:
Sink or swim
Do or die
Fail or Faith

Wow – I ‘stepped away’ a moment to regroup, because this has been heavy on my heart for a few days… While I was ‘gone’ I read a comment about Sherry Shepard’s thoughts on DWTS. Perfect timing today for my own thoughts….

“And, I wanna say, to every person out there — that thing that scares you the most, that makes you say, ‘I don’t know if I can do it, I’m scared,’ run towards it because it’s so amazing on the other side.”

I’m going to press on… I’m running down a dream, I’m gonna take a chance and free-fall into the unknown and see what happens – I’m going to run and see what’s on the other side… I hope to see you when I take the blind fold off…

I also wanted to share here – in case someone who reads isn’t a FB friend – that my new friend Stephie Smith’s first book comes out on Kindle today and for TODAY (4/11/12) it’s a FREE DOWNLOAD:

Take a leap of faith today! Jump without fear – follow your heart… someone else already did…

Love, Barbara

    I’m your right ear……Now, I should just follow my own directions!

    You have more people than you know on your right side! We will drag you this way if we have to. And that’s partly because we love you dearly and partly because we’re just dying to read your next book!!
    P.S.
    There’s a reason you chose “believe” and “go for it” to be on your right side… in your heart, you know it’s the correct choice.

      sometimes faith is a WHISPER….
      sometimes it’s a SHOUT from a beautiful friend!
      thank you beautiful friend!
