Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Too many times we end up letting our fear or anxiety hold us frozen in place. It can prevent us from moving forward and accomplishing the simplest of tasks. One thing that I have learned in the time that I have been walking on the Earth is this: "you cannot move forward or to anything if you don't put forth an effort and try." Life can be difficult and he road that we journey is going to be fraught with trials, hardships, obstacles and pitfalls, do not be discouraged by these things, they will serve to make you stronger.

Dwelling on the things around you can distract you and if you think too hard or too long on the obstacles that present themselves to you can cause indecision and depression. Fear and depression are two of the biggest factor that can lead you to be afraid. Fear can do several things it can either motivate you toward change or it can held you back from trying.  Time in these instances will quickly seem to be against you and your enemy. But, it may be the one thing that keeps you moving forward. One people leap before they look or act before they truly understand the consequences that an action might have.

Yes, time can also be a motivating factor, but if take in the right perspective it is just that a factor.  I have been through so much in my journey that I have come to the realization that all the facts new to be known and analyzed before you make a hasty decision. I know you have heard me tell you that it is the journey that you take that molds you and builds you up, not the stops you take along the way.

What do you think I mean by this?  The pitfalls, obstacles, and disasters that hit us are what makes us stronger and molds us into an example that might inspire hope in others.  The times you stop and look back on your life are just way stations and don't reflect the journey that you have traveled.  How many times have you looked back over your life and been disappointed by the progress you have made or the place you currently find yourself in.

Time continues to pass and with it new revelations are revealed and new strengths are displayed.

If you never try you can never achieve the desired of your heart.

Keep this in mind.

As always my hopes and dreams are with you,
