I was just looking at some pics from my facebook albums that were from over the years. I noticed at one point in my life that when I took the pics they were from the inside looking out.
Some really beautiful ones too but there was always a glare in the pic from the window that I was taking the pic from behind. I love nature and the beautiful sceneries that I use to live right in the middle of but never really got out there and enjoyed any of it.
There are reasons but it doesn’t matter now. What matters is that I am no longer behind that window looking out.
It took time for me to realize that it’s okay to step out from behind that window and get rid of the glare.
It’s really simple. What holds us back from moving forward, taking that chance, or making a life change? Fear right?
Fear holds us back from more than we realize. For some of us fear can play a part in the simplest tasks. For starters, putting our two feet on the floor when we wake up in the morning. There is always something out there we dread that has to be dealt with in our day right?
Try this(myself included), start off with just today by saying no or not doing something with you are uncomfortable with, without feeling bad or guilty.
Little steps are a great way to get going on defeating what’s holding you back.
Consciously make an effort and take note on everything and every little feeling, like the pit in your stomach feeling, when you have to make a choice on what YOU want to do. Just say no. It’s really not that hard. Remember baby steps.
Good luck today. I’d like to hear what you decided not to do today and how it felt to say no. Even if you say no to one thing, that is a great start.
