All I know at this point is that each day, each moment is a new opportunity to look my fears in the eyes and not be overtaken by uncertainty.
“Don’t buy trouble”… I try to use my Mom’s words and wisdom to fight my own invisible dragons — those fears that will probably never become a reality.
It’s all in the here and now. The real question I need to be asking myself is what can I do in this moment to live and breathe my full potential. How do I use my mind and my talents that will lead to a better and more beautiful future?
There is nothing to be gained by living in fear – by being frozen in “what ifs” and unfounded fears.
I want to dig in and reconnect with the kid I was when I learned that stitches weren’t going to kill me. And know that living within me is the strength of my mom whispering softly, “you’re so brave Jen. Everything is going to be okay.”
