"I have always known that at last I would take this road. But yesterday I did not know it would be today." Narihira
I'm comfortably settled into my new apartment. I've got my California driver's license, and changed the plates. I've let the money mongers know where they can find me.
Now it's time to address one of my biggest fears: success. I've noticed that my fear of success has everything to do with my self esteem. If I had confidence in myself, my fear might be of failure. Now that I've painted myself into a corner, my choices are: (1) learn how to be financially self-sufficient; or (2) get swallowed up by the big bad world. :)
Ok...ok. There are probably thousands of other choices available. But I'm going to try not to think of them. In fact, I'm going to try not to over-think. If I continue to put one well-intentioned foot in front of the other, the universe will provide. Right? I came across this Chippewa saying:
Pray to the Great Spirit, but paddle away from the rocks.
