Oh! The Places You Would Go!

Change is inevitable.  It is going to happen over and over again every single day of your life.

You can make yourself crazy resisting change but that would be like riding your brake as you drive down the road.   Life is pushing you forward yet you’re applying the brakes for no reason other than just a lack of trust or faith.

Faith and trust are what protect us from fear.  Without these things… without faith we would be paralyzed by our fears.   Its faith in our legs to hold us up that gives us the confidence to stand.  It’s the faith in knowing we will receive a paycheck that allows us to get up and go to work.   We know these things are going to take place.   We have faith and therefore, they happen.

IF only we could have this same level of faith and trust in all aspects of our life.  As Dr. Suess say’s  “Oh, the Places you will go!”

Looking back on changes in my life . . . major changes . . . those that presented the most fear. Reflecting on those changes or decisions that caused me the most stress, the most fear– those were the changes that affected the most growth. And such an incredible reminder!

What is the last thing you did that truly frightened you? How did you grow from it? And what is holding you back now? What fear has you paralyzed? Maybe it’s time to act upon it and shed that fear and allow yourself to fly. Remember how good it felt last time?

Have faith in yourself.

About TheSheriW

Since a very young age, I have always been drawn to writing. Be it poems, short stories, plots or characterizations I found a great release, and at the same time, great energy in putting thoughts down on paper. Throughout my life I've experienced a roller-coaster of emotions, many which I've kept hidden beneath the surface. Writing allows me to identify, accept, release or embrace those feelings. Life, death, pain, elation, fulfillment, fear. I've traveled down each of these roads over and over again. If my lyrics can convey to even one other person that they aren't traveling alone, I've done my work. Words are the medium that paint the pictures I see in my imagination.
