I am standing at the gate of opportunity; a wide open space.
I am here thinking about a post by Seth Godin about how it isn’t necessarily the how or the why that matters most in your journey; it is where. Where is the fear?
Where is the fear that is holding me back?
Fear is where I think I am not able to define what it is that I want to do…
It is where I think I am not able to do it because somehow I am not enough…
It is where I think I am not finding the right “place”…
It takes me to the how…
I can feel what it is I want to do. How do I act upon it?
I know what it is I want to do. How do I explain it? Ship it?
I am where I am and we aren’t planning to move. How do I make this work here?
And the why…
I want to help people connect with themselves, with ideas, and with each other.
I want dance to serve as way of healing, self-discovery, and expression.
In looking back at that list, it seems fear is where I think I am. But where am I really?
For now I am imagining this open space as a sheep meadow. It is green, vast, and beautiful. There’s nothing scary about sheep.
Where is the fear that is holding you back?
What is it holding you back from doing?
