I finished reading The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho today.

I want to share this quote from the book with you👇🏼

.

“I’m afraid of taking steps that are not on the map, but by taking those steps despite my fears, I have a much more interesting life.”

.

Life is what you make it. We often grow up following a path that is set out without questioning if its even true for us. There is no set way of living your life. What we’re taught is only one version. If that doesn’t resonate, go out and explore. It’s never too late. Try things. Make mistakes. No one will tell you off.
.
I’m in the unknown most of the time. Half the time, I feel scared or anxious. Half the time, I trust and surrender. I wouldn’t have it any other way as there is no magic or growth on the safe side of controlled living.
.
People tell me I’m courageous and here’s why: In those moments of fear, I go forward because I don’t want to live with the regret of thinking what would have happened if I did take a chance. Living fully and not wanting to regret becomes stronger than the fear stopping me. When you take a risk, universe rewards you, so it turns out great most of the time. And even when I f*ck up big time, I have a lesson to take away.
.
Start doing what you want to do and everything else will be revealed to you. Have one foot in the responsibilities in your current reality and one foot in the next steps in your vision. Take it one small step at a time 🤗
.
I love you 💛
