The Gift of Courage

I started this website 1 1/2 years ago with the intention to follow through. However, fears and hesitations interfered and here I am today writing my very first post.

It takes courage to begin any journey, whether it is a meaningful life or a new project. Sometimes we are blessed with  encouragement from friends and family as well as reminders from heaven that we are not alone. I love symbols and signs, like finding coins and feathers, seeing butterflies, and discovering words, quotes, and books that seem meant especially for me at that very moment. Yet, when it comes down to it, the decision to begin is mine alone and I can only do it with courage.

I am a Leo. I am supposed to be a roaring lioness with all the courage I need for any journey. I’m not sure yet how I feel about the accuracy of astrology, but I reasoned early in life that I must have been born under the wrong sign. I’m more like a pet cat than a lion!

However, my 55th birthday is coming up on August 4th and I have decided to embrace my inner lioness. It’s time to let go of fears and actually do those things I have dreamed of doing my whole life. One of them is writing. I may eventually share my other dreams as we continue on this journey together.

What have you dreamed of doing that you have never given yourself permission to begin? Now is the time! We can do this together!
