Keeping busy - or keeping your dreams at arm’s length

Not that you have to tell Me. But your inner self might be trying to get your attention. And tell You.

Yeah, that inner longing. That inner knocking to get your attention. To stop being so busy so you can’t hear that inner voice at all.

Or the fear that rises up that you have to face someday.

Not easy is it? Facing ourselves.

Facing the risks.

Yeah, ‘flog’ you Debbie Bowie - okay so not really, really. But I get her feng shui and organizational insights in my in-box and it’s so much easier to read that than actually work on all the things I ‘should’ be doing, or ‘supposed’ to be doing.

Or it was.

You should go read it too - Here

Here I’ll help you -

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.

To reach for another is to risk involvement.

To expose your ideas, your dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.

To love is to risk not being loved in return.

To live is to risk dying.

To believe is to risk despair.

To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The people who risk nothing do nothing, have nothing, are nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot learn, cannot feel, cannot change, grow, love and live.

Chained by their attitudes they are slaves; they have forfeited their freedom.

Only a person who risks is free.

Okay, now you see. Understand?

So that was a mean thing of me to do? Heh, heh, heh. Now you know all about the old saying about misery and company, right? I’ll explain it to you if you want. Heh, heh.

Oh, come on, I am not heartless. Here’s Debbie’s helpful blog.

And here’s her website - Rock Paper Scissors Institute

Now, See how nice I am to you.

So, what are your dreams really worth to you now? Don't tell me. Tell that inner self.
