There is a good chance that, right now, you have something burning a hole in your mind, all because you read a single question. What holds you back?
Is there a dream you are, at best, half-heartedly pursuing?
Is there a project left unfinished, longing to see the light of day?
Are you too busy helping other people, not out of genuine care, but because it's easier to help others accomplish their goals than to see to the fruition of your own?
Are you waiting for permission from outside sources, when maybe it's you who needs to give yourself a green light?
Are you afraid no one will like it, no one will care, no one will help you?
Perhaps, dear heart, you need to get on your feet, dust yourself off, and try another way.
Perhaps, dear heart, there are a dozen people just waiting to cheer you on.
Perhaps, dear heart, the realization of your dreams will be an incredible blessing to others.
Create. Build up. Nurture. Discover. Connect. Love. Tend. Restore.
You may find that the fear that holds you back, in the end, was hardly more than a phantom.
