Bald Eagle in mid-air flight over Homer Spit Kenai Peninsula Alaska Winter

Have you heard your inner voice
urging you on,
“You can do it, there you go,
one step at a time,
You’ll be great, You’ll do fine,
it’s never too late?”

If fear is holding you back,
break free with all your might
If you imagine failure
around the corner,
You’ve let yourself down,
You’ve lost sight

So take that baby step,
begin a new chapter
outside of your box,
to your goals be compliant
and don’t fret about
future stumbling blocks

Cause for celebration
isn’t only about the destination,

Winning the race means
fear has finished in last place
and Succeeding means
You have begun…

  1. What a wonderful affirmation Lauren! Fear is an enemy of mine, probably of us all but I can only speak for myself. Fear has kept me back nearly all my life until I became afraid of fear itself; that is a horrible place to find yourself and it is what led to my drinking too much because alcohol “took the fear away”. Of course it didnt, it merely put a mask on it.
    Succeeding as you say, certainly means we have begun. And it means doing things despite the fear. To me that is true success. This kind of success wont give me a degree but it feels as good as or even better! ❤️ Xx

    1. Thanks, Chris, and fear seems to seep it’s way into most of us, I’m sure. I’ve dealt with it and still do to this day. You’re right, whatever we choose for “comfort” is simply a mask and not the solution. I think this kind of success is much better than any degree hanging on a wall. It comes from within. ♥ Hugs, my friend…

    1. Thanks, Marina, you are so sweet! This is one that gave me insecurities as I touched the publish button. I wasn’t sure if it would flop or not. Isn’t it funny how our assumptions can be quite opposite of reality? I’m glad you liked it! ♥

    1. Aww…thanks, Christy, for your encouraging words, too, and yes, I really feel that sometimes it’s simply hard to take that baby step, to begin on a new path, and once we’ve done that, we’re moving forward and hence, succeeded, no matter the outcome. 🙂 Hugs to you, too, my friend!

    1. Thanks so much, Angela! That’s really how I believe, “to succeed is to begin” love how you said that, too! 🙂 Eagles are awesome, I agree, and I knew I found the right image when I spotted this one. Hugs! xo

I appreciate your thoughts!
