The gist was that rather than choosing to create the lives we truly wish to live, most of us instead resign ourselves to mediocrity. Instead of making life choices that challenge us and arouse our passion and creativity, we “settle.” We do things like they’ve always been done – we fall into line like worker ants, bearing the burdens of those who’ve gone before us…burdens they didn’t have the courage to question.
Even now, perhaps 1/3 of the way through my life, I still hold the belief deep within me that I have something beautiful and unique to contribute. And I know I’m not alone. So what happened?
Maybe we’ve been letting fear run our lives for too long. Maybe it’s time to let fear rest.
