Fortunate favors the bold
Nothing screams summer like checking off things off of our bucket list. This summer I said to myself I want to do all things that make me uncomfortable, even if I’m scared. Do it! Of course, nothing life threatening. In order to be the best version of ourselves we must step out of the norm.
I started off my summer getting on a plane to Miami. Let me just tell you this, I was scared out of my mind ... it’s been 6 years since flying and I feared flying again. But I told myself, if I didn’t fly how do I expect to travel the world? Why would I allow flying to stop me? So this was my bold move.
Once I accomplished getting on and off the plane, I felt a shift in my mood .. a sense of relief. I did it! Like a kid winning a spelling bee contest. I wanted to scream and shout, maybe even cry because I prolonged traveling on a plane due to allowing fear to step in from things I’ve seen on the news to stories I’ve been told within the time I haven’t flown.
Now that I’ve knocked down a goal I’ve been hesitant about ... I’m craving more adventures and things that bring out the best in me. Sometimes letting go a bit, even just a tad feels almost just as good as taking off your bra after a long day.
My goal for this summer is to let go .. let go in a way that allows me to be vulnerable in my art completely. What is one thing you would like to do this summer? At the end of the day I want to be able to share some lit stories with my grandchildren in the far future.
As always lots of love and bub,
