The secret is out! The dream that I’ve been nursing for some time is now released to the world. The excitement and anticipation that propelled me through the months of planning (and dreaming) have now brought about a feeling of trepidation.
But, I suppose that’s okay; just as it is okay for you to be apprehensive or to even ask yourself “what if”. What if something happens while I’m gone? What if i use the money then realize that I needed it elsewhere? What if I make a fool of myself? What if I don’t connect to anyone there? What if? What if? What if?
I have asked myself a lot of “what ifs” through the years – in fact, I still do from time to time. However, I have also come to realize that those “what ifs”, even when they are legitimate questions, often serve as obstacles and even unnecessary delays in obtaining the things that we need and which are good for us.
After confirming with our amazing teachers and as I got ready to sign on the dotted line to retain the venue for sabătica’s inaugural retreat, I too had a moment when I asked “what if”; but then I remembered why I started the journey and so took a deep breath and decided to take a leap of faith.
There will be many arguments about why we shouldn’t do this or other things, but at the end of the day all that is required is a decision. For, nothing happens until we decide.
Cheers to choosing life! Cheers to choosing you!
