One decides to jump.
How many are left?
The frog made a decision but took no action.
This is a buddhist philosophy that speaks loudly to me these days. With the new year coming next week (yikes!) I’m trying to change my way of thinking. To focus more. To be more brave. More patient. I want to cultivate my dreams and make them a reality one way or another. I want to make decisions and act on them. I want to put myself out there and be a bit more true to who I am. I want to make the decision to overcome a few fears.
I read so many blogs where people are very comfortable with sharing personal information with the whole world wide web. I use a lot of descretion and am hesistant to share or say things I really think and feel. It’s nothing drastic, but I have a fear of being judged. I need to get over it, I know. There are several things I’m passionate about and would love to write about, but I don’t.
It’s my blog and I can say whatever I want. I know that. But then I think what if someone gets offended or doesn’t agree with me? Or what if down the road when I go back to work an employer finds my blog? Does anyone else also hold back on things they really would want to share?
I have so many opinions and ideas that I want to talk about. This is the one place I should voice an opinion, right? A place where I should express my ideas, curiosities and questions. So going into 2011 I made a decision to be more brave. Now I just need to act on that
