“You have brains in your head.
You have feet on your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy girl who’ll decide where to go.”
A quote from my favorite Dr. Seuss book. His message is simple — Life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act’, but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.’
This popped into my brain when I was thinking about this week’s Fearless Friday topic. The topic is JOURNEY. A perfect topic actually, because these days I’m constantly trying to figure that out. Where am I headed? What do I want? Who am I?
They may sound like simple questions for some. But not for me. For me, it is a process. I don’t have the easy answers because I’m still figuring it all out. Figuring out the ‘Great Balancing Act’ of being what my family needs but also being what I need me to be.
I’ve envisioned my ideal life. Not my fantasy la-la-land life but my ideal real life. I’ve felt the fear and the emotions that go along with pushing past people’s expectations about me or what my life should be. And I have begun to take the steps to get there. I am determined to make it happen.
My friends, 2011 is my year. My year to rediscover myself. To love myself more. To put myself out there. And I am so excited about what lies ahead. I am just beginning to crack the surface of what I know I can do.
Please stay tuned to hear more about my journey. This blog will be evolving over the coming months, as I hope to.
Here is a photograph I took about a year ago that sums up how excited I am about the future. I hope you are too!
Now, please head on over to my beautiful friend Megan’s blog to learn about her journey.
