One Foot in Front of the Other

“Most fears arise from uncertainty. When we’re stuck in fear, we can’t put one foot in front of the other unless we know what lies ahead. Our life doesn’t even feel like our own life, it’s so controlled by fear” Dzigar Kongtrul

Fear is paralyzing. I have many regrets in my life, those unfulfilled dreams and plans, because I did not try. As I’ve grown older it has become apparent how much of a role fear played. I may have feared failure itself or the effort it may take or the time it may take, the list could could go on forever. Yet, I know from experience how fulfilling it can be to step forward and see where my steps will take me. My dreams and plans may only be the tip of a larger iceberg where bigger and better things will unfold.

And, to follow along on this theme, I ventured out and changed my theme on this blog. Another photoblogger uses this theme and I think it would work better for me. It has flexible width and allows for larger images to post while still keeping three columns. Please let me know if it is appealing in content, color, size and speed.

  2. How many times, when I was down and discouraged, did some nice person tell me to just put one foot in front of the other. Thanks for the reminder.
    Question: you step out with the left foot (as do I), do you think it matters if a person steps out with the right?

  3. Nice blog entry. I’ve felt the same about myself before. Always let fear of some sort get in the way. But not anymore. You’re only on this earth for a certain amount of time. Don’t waste it.
