Stop Being Afraid


"Stop being afraid of what could go wrong, and focus on what could go right."

- Unknown 

Our life consists of making choices. We have our everyday questions; What should we listen to today?  or Should we begin writing that 10 page paper now or in a couple of hours? But then ... there are those questions that make us stop for a moment and think twice about our decision. 

 Finding ourselves conflicted, we might make a list of the possible outcomes that can result from the way we choose to handle the situation. Many times ignoring our gut feeling, that has perhaps already recognized which one is the better choose, we dwell on the two and write an even longer list. A list that is no longer made of pros and cons, but overfilled with cons. A normal reaction that occurs to us when we find ourselves in distress, but must break in order to think clearer. Keeping in mind what Mr. Nobody has told us all,  "Every path is the right path. Everything could've been anything else. And it would have just as much meaning." 

Sometimes we will know what choice to make, but other times it will require us to take a leap of faith and trust that whichever path we choose to take, it will still lead us to the place we're meant to be. Nothing is ever certain in this world and every choice comes with it's own set of ups and downs, it's just up to us to decide the manner in which we want to handle it.
