She was afraid of heights, but she was much more afraid of never flying. ~ Atticus
I read this quote on Instagram yesterday eve and reposted it on my account because I loved it so much. It makes you think. What are you afraid of that will hold you from doing something? Afraid you'll be rejected so you won't audition? Afraid you'll fail so you won't try a dance class? Afraid of heights so you won't climb that mountain?
Think about all the things you haven't done in your life because it was you who hold you back. What if you said yes more times in your life than you would say no. I'm at a moment in my life that I want to hold myself back but that I'm saying to myself: just do it!! What is really the worst thing that could happen? If you fail, get up and try again. Get that set of higher weights, go ask that boy/girl out on a date, do apply for a job and go talk to that friend you've been in a fight with for way too long.
There's never the right time, you can wait all you want for the exact right moment. But guess what? That perfect moment will never appear. That moment is now. You'll always have excuses and when you're out of excuses, you'll make up some more. Seriously, the time is now. Of course these are great big words written by me, but this post wouldn't make any sense if I didn't learn the quote myself. You see, before I even saw the quote on Instagram I overcame my own fear and did something I've been pushing back for weeks, or even months. If I can do it, you can do it. ;-)
Time is the most valuable thing you have, don't waste it, make it count!
Now is this humpday motivation or what?!
Atticus is a fictional character whom I fell in love with when I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" he is really the hero of the book by Harper Lee.
