Last night my sister in law and I spent hours talking about our love for writing and sharing our aspirations. One of the things I mentioned was finally setting aside my fear and diving into my dream of writing a book. Writing a book has been on my heart since middle school yet I’ve created countless excuses not to do it. After our conversation I was moved to pray. I asked God to push me to pursue this dream if it was part of His plan for me and ironically I stumbled across these journals today. I was walking down the baby aisle of Target in search of formula and there they were right beside it. Misplaced but exactly where they needed to be. I laughed.
What’s preventing you from pursuing your passion? If I’m being honest with myself, the biggest block between where I am and where I want to be is me. I’ve struggled with anxiety and have allowed doubt to keep me from chasing my dreams. But not anymore. I’m taking a stand. Fear has no place in my life and it should have no place in yours. Today, right now, is the time to start ‘that thing’ that has been on your heart.
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
