Over this past week something has happened with me, and I am finally really enjoying myself once again. I wish I could tell you what happened. I wish I knew — but I don’t. All I know is that sometime the middle of this past week, something just clicked in my mind and the fear of “what if’s” kindly took a flying leap. I think it might have had to do with my exhilarating weekend of driving at high rates of speed during the Cooper Super Mom Ride n Drive that I attended.
I had many firsts that weekend that I fretted with myself about — driving at high rates of speed, letting my group down because I was scared, wearing a short dress to go out to dinner — I really was a nervous wreck. However, the minute I got behind the wheel and I heard my teacher say FLOOR IT — I don’t know — something just clicked in me and I said — WHO CARES – JUST DO IT!
From that moment, I have been on this high of just living in the moment. I have stopped trying to analyze everything to death and enjoy myself some. Life is too short to live in the what ifs. Life is too short to live in fear. Life is too short to NOT live.
In fact, I felt liberated today as I purchased myself my first pair of stilettos (at least I think they are stilettos) — they are freaking awesome!
They have like 4 inch heels on them. I am PRAYING I don’t fall down. I am hoping to wear them to church next week, or out on a date with my husband. I am in love with these shoes. I haven’t worn any like this because I have been afraid of falling down and hurting myself. Again — fear ruled this purchase out for many years. Now I own a pair for myself! 🙂
I wrote this post because I wanted to say — please stop living in fear and enjoy your life. There is so much to do, to be, to say, and fear will cause you to NOT do any of those things.
So — what have you been fearful of lately? STOP living in that fear.
