Thank you for my courage–the ability
to go forward with the scarier option–
and usually the most fun and
Playing it safe the same old way seems
like you could get by on that path,
& you could, but you don’t
build your courage muscle.
You don’t grow into a person
with a wider repertoire of
experiences you’ve faced and
risks you’ve failed to negotiate with
the world, never knowing how
far you could take your tack, to
an ideal of unlimited fulfillment.
They’re little steps, but avoiding
them, you stunt your full expression
as a human being.
So I keep at it, waffle through
the anxiety, willing to risk
failure, and testing my
refining it. No one can
predict the outcome but
your internal growth,
extinguishing all unreasonable
fears, is enhanced.
If you’re afraid, that’s a
signal, directing your
direction and an opportunity
to become more.
