Taking the Plunge

Do you remember the photo of Ava in Friday's post?  Do you remember what I said about approaching life that way?

Well I'm calling myself on it.  ;D

Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.  --Dorothy Thompson

I will admit I have fear.  However the fear of never having really lived is greater than the fear of exposing myself and my desires.


Journaling says:
I have a secret desire to be a scrapbook designer. I want to have my own line of creations that people love and that I can sell and I want to be good enough at it that I can make a good living. Saying this out loud requires a lot of courage. I have fear of being rejected and of failure. But I can say I’m more afraid of looking back on my life and never tried to accomplish this. That seems worse than admitting what I fear. June 2009
