Three Quote Challenge: 3

I’ve been so lazy the last few days, I haven’t even managed to look at my own blog! I’m pretty much over the Thanksgiving food coma now so I figured I had better start catching up around here. I had started this 3 Quote Challenge last week, but if you have been paying attention, you’ll notice I only made it to Quote #2.

Here’s #3…

Yeah! I really DO believe that one and I TRY to act like it. BUT, things just keep getting in the way. Yeah, things like bills mostly. Things like fears more importantly.

Somehow I need to find a way to get rid of my fears (of how to pay the bills, of what might happen if I just GO- pack it all up and leave!). Could I get mugged? Could I lose my stuff? Could I be physically attacked? What if I get stuck in a bad place? With bad people? What options do I have if I don’t have plenty of money? How can I possibly support myself in a foreign country? Will I be able to renew my license (to work) if I leave? How?

Yeah, I really do think of stuff like that (and more). I have to admit, those thoughts, more than anything else, is what is keeping me here. I’m sure things can’t be as bad as I worry myself about in my mind. After all, there are thousands of people wandering the world, doing just the kinds of things I want to do.

I want to travel. I want to see the world. I want to sail. I want to SAIL around the world! I want to explore, to learn new languages, to meet new people, to try new foods, to really get to know a place. I want to spend more time being creative, reading, writing, painting, photographing, playing music, singing, playing.

I just need to get over my fears and just DO IT! Anybody have any suggestions?
