Thankful Thursday

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”  Hellen Keller 

 There's so much I want to do...so many things I want to try but I always feel this fear wanting to hold me back. I hear its whisper - 'stay where it's safe, - on the sidelines where it's familiar.'

But something stronger tells me 'go, take a risk.....try. It's where life will really feel like living.'

I do feel the fear, but I really want the adventures. It's a fight, a struggle to not give in to that fear and go for the fun, the new, the exciting. Grateful for....

-the drive inside that pushes me to do what scares me. I feel it as much as I feel the fear. 
-new beginnings for the kids. Prom done. Grad over. This Fall - university for my oldest, high school for my youngest. 
-booking dates to run groups and speak in the Fall. Excited for that b/c I love giving back. 
-road trips, holidays, exploring, adventure. We leave early Saturday morning. Finally. Yeah!!!!
-But mostly that He's an anchor....something solid to hang onto, something I can trust that always helps me move past my fears and realize my dreams.

Happy Thursday, Guys.

Helen Keller was a wise lady! Life is an adventure, especially when He is our Guide! Your Summer sounds like it's going to be overflowing with lots of wonderful opportunities for fun and relaxation. Savour every moment and enjoy your upcoming weekend with your girls.

Hugs from PEI,

I was reminded of these words from an old hymn - "my anchor holds within the veil." Yes, He is something solid to hold on, and I'm grateful for that. Life has been pretty stormy lately.

GOD BLESS!

Happy Thursday Nikki... Although life is not what I want it to be... I am enjoying the calmness I have right now... I want to do the the things that scare me too...

Thankfully for Him... He can get us through anything...

Happy Thursday, Nikki! It's funny isn't it that so many things we are afraid to try end up to be so rewarding for us when we finally get enough courage to give them a try.
