Gradually… Cautiously… and then Jump!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I have always been one to take my time with things. Get to know them. Ease into things. Which has been very safe and good for me in many ways. It is not the only way though. I have been unlearning and relearning very much about myself for the last 7 years or so. There are other ways. To settle into our ways is to stop learning. Do I have to lose my gradual cautious side? Of course not, this is part of me and a very good part of me. Yet, I can learn and have learned to be more courageous. To jump sometimes without knowing where I may be going, to count on instinct, to dive into fear head on knowing I will survive. Now, I become stronger. Now, I have both skills. The skill to stay still and figure before I move and the skill to move and figure as I go. Developing both, I have become better at both. Being able to see things in other ways makes one more of a multi dimentional person. To see things from only one perspective makes life stagnant and flat. To see life from multiple perspectives leads us to a more realistic truth and  understanding of life. The easiest answer is seldom the best.
This year I am taking and trying many new things and getting to know life even better. Taking interest in the unknown gradually and cautiously at times and at times just jumping into the unknown. Developing the intuition to know when to do which is the key. I am getting better at this as I go. It is all a learning process in which I embrace with full mind ,body and soul. I want to share with you my journey. I also want to share what I have learned along my way in hopes that it may be helpful in your lives as well.
So, I am new to blogging and am not a “techie” by any means. I am figuring much of this out as I go. I wanted it to be perfect before I told anyone of it. But when would that be? I just kept getting caught up in the technical end which frustrated me more then anything. Content of my writting and sharing what has worked for me in life is whats important. The fine tuning and tweeking on the technical end will come as I go, if even needed. I have been working on this off and on since November, feel free to browse around and look through the archives. I plan on blogging 2 to 3 times a week maybe more, maybe less. We will have to see how things go. NOW …….. I JUMP!
