A follower of The Barista (a.k.a. My Mornin’ Coffee) I saw this question and it really got me thinking: What is it that holds us back?
FEAR. Big, old, crippling fear.
Fear causes us to conform to things we don’t believe just so that we can fit in and not be alone.
Fear causes us to run when we should stay.
Fear causes us to give up when if had held on a second longer it would have made all the difference in the world.
Fear makes us hide the truth.
Fear can keep us from going through the dark. If we go through the dark we will always find light again.
Fear can cause us to choose poorly.
Fear can keep us from being happy.
Wouldn’t it be fabulous if we all just took a step forward in the right direction – if we all chose to move in the right direction at the same time?
What a crazy, beautiful world that would be.
If I wasn’t afraid of the stigma attached to being a medium/clairvoyant/whatever-you-want-to-call-it that is probably what I would do with my life. I am certain I was destined to help people who have lost loved ones deal with that grief. I am pretty sure God made me extra feely for that very reason. I believe that is my calling.
What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
