It's good that there are people around you, who can make you jump when the only thing you want to do is to stay still. But, if you are not sure where to jump or where you want to aim with your jump, it is also good to dare not to jump. At that time, years ago, I was in a situation where I wasn't quite sure where that jump would lead, or where I wanted it to go. So, I didn't jump, and in a way, I stayed still for many years. Listening to oneself can sometimes be quite challenging. It is not always that clear whose wish or dream you are living into reality. Before jumping into the unknown, it's good to ask yourself if this is my real desire, or is it about pleasing someone else that makes me jump?
“I have to trust and let go
I have to trust that these wings carry ”
The courage to act and do things that feel right in your heart can be challenging. Why? Because we're affected by constant background noise, and its echo, all the time. Insecurity in you can start to grow with one innocent word or phrase you read or hear. Then the flow of your thoughts runs completely automatically, and unfortunately, it often causes your uncertainty to grow bigger and bigger.
Negative thoughts filled with insecurity are "easier" for oneself to adopt and believe, than positive and confident ones. Insecurity makes you stay in a familiar and safe life. After all, it's very easy to get stuck in that life. It doesn't take as much energy as that jump, the jump into the new and the unknown.
But you dare to jump even if you don't know if you can survive alive"
However, if you are attracted, like a magnet, by the jump into the unknown, you can be sure that that jump is something that you really want to do. That being the case, I urge you not to think about what all that could go wrong in that jump, and focus on all, that could all go right!
Dare to live a life you are excited about! ❤️
I have translated the quotations from a song called Äärirajoille by Finnish rapper Cheek
Fear is a reaction.
Courage is a decision.
