"Freedom lies in being bold."-Robert Frost.

Saturday, March 26, 2011

When I am afraid I also seem to be timid. I don't think being timid helps me to progress.

I feel very worried at times that just being me is offensive. How I talk, what I say whatever...I kind of know why. I also am learning with the support of friends that it is not true.

I am learning as go on this journey to let people peek at who I am. I am learning to be a bit more bold in my life. Asking for things and giving others. Eliminating some things from my life and embracing other things.

I am enchanted with the idea of being more free.

    Wow, I could have written the first part myself! I've never seen it in writing, but that part about worrying that just being me is offensive to others, sounded just like me! I guess I need to work on letting that kind of thought go away, and be comfortable with myself. Thanks for the thought-provoking blog.

    Those negative messages from childhood do hang on, don't they. I'm just now catching up--good to see that you are still plugging away and making progress. Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

    Freedom is fun. Some of it an age thing. I think we become more confident in ourselves as we get older. We "build on our success" and move forward. I love that you are reading a lot and finding some great inspirational quotes.

    Keep moving forward. You are doing some really great things.
