Try something new for the first time

When is the last time you can say you tried something new for the first time?

If your answer is “it’s been a while.” Maybe it’s time to step into the unknown. There is a problem. We don’t want to start something new unless we can see the ending. We are afraid. Afraid of shame and guilt. We are afraid of failure. So unless we have a map or set of instructions; we won’t start.

So…start. Start walking down the tunnel of uncertainty. Embrace the fear. Use your candle; it doesn’t have to light the whole way. It just needs light the next step. Then take it. And then another. And then another.

Pretty soon we will make it through this.

We can enjoy the outcome. The thrill of victory. The agony of defeat.

But it is not over. We need to start again.
