Maybe yes

This is a beautiful poem and I think it is so applicable to all of us in some way. For me sometimes it’s the fear of trying something new of moving on from an old familiar place or just speaking my mind. Letting go of old feelings and things like that…so this poem is for me

Maybe Not   (by Dana Faulds)

Begin somewhere.

Take one deep breath and dive.

Plunge into the core of your most persistent fear, or your greatest joy.

Grow comfortable with the act of exploration.

Well, maybe not comfortable, but confident of your ability to be sure-footed on slick rocks, steady while the winds gust.

Well, maybe not entirely confident, but willing to set out despite persistent doubts, breathing your way into whatever you are facing.

Well, maybe not even all that willing, but you take it anyway, that first step into the unknown.

Courage is starting where there is no secure outcome, no sure result. The secret is you can begin again any time.

Take one deep breath,

and dive!


Whatever you are struggling with maybe this is worth reading over and over so that you can feel a little bit of comfortable, confident courage to take one deep breath and just dive in! I wish you would, I wish you even more luck if you do ♥
