“The only gatekeeper to your dream is courage.” My pastor Jason Burns said those words and I am sure that right when I heard them something in me changed.
For years and years I have let fear win. Fear of failure. Fear of what people will say. Fear of not being smart enough/good enough/talented enough. I’ve left my dream, A Kind Place, to be only that…a dream. I never fully pursued it because it scared (SCARES) me and it is easier to “dream at it” from a safe distance.
I’m still afraid of some of those things. I cried tears to a friend just today about some of my insecurities. (Ash, you always let me cry and I am so thankful). But I’m done playing safe. There is no safety or security in playing it safe, anyways. It is slow death to box yourself in that way. So yeah. I still have some fears, but oh how I have courage.
“Courage doesn’t mean we’re not afraid anymore. It just means our actions aren’t controlled by our doubts.”-Bob Goff
I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that my dream, A Kind Place, is coming soon to Dixieland. I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been dreaming up.
