The Risk to Bloom

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anaïs Nin

Roadblocks we encounter out in the world are meant to protect us. But, what about the roadblocks we create for ourselves? We build barriers to keep at bay what is too scary to explore.

It’s important to analyze new situations and evaluate the pros and cons. However, sometimes logic is our enemy. Even while it is telling us “No”, deep within our intuition is screaming, “Yes, yes, yes!” Those are cues for us to let go and venture down that unknown road.

What is life for, really? Adventure, learning, expansion, and growth, they are all begging for you to step up to the plate.

“Although the road is never ending, take a step and keep walking, do not look fearfully into the distance… On this path let the heart be your guide for the body is hesitant and full of fear.” (Rumi)
