The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. ~Joseph Campbell
Do you lack courage to take chances in life?
At some time or another we all have allowed fear to rule a situation in our lives.
It takes faith to seize opportunity as few prospects in life are guaranteed.
Every action we take involves risk.
We risk ridicule, rejection, failure, and sorrow.
We also face the possibility of approval, acceptance, success, and happiness.
When we avoid chance we avoid living.
We mustn’t allow our fear to paralyze us thus our lives become stagnant.
We must let go of fear and embrace freedom.
Life involves change. We can’t experience growth without it.
You can’t win the game if you don’t play.
Living in the Gap
March 4, 2012 – Entertaining and noisy squirrels
Thump. Pitter. Patter. Tap. Tap. Scurry, Scurry. Tap. Tap. Tap. This racket travels from one side of the roof to the other. I look outside to see a squirrel fling through the air and onto the pine tree. Whoosh, the second one follows and teeters as he almost loses his balance. He chases the first one up the tree. The first squirrel sneaks around and beneath the other one and startles him causing him to jump to the ground and run across the yard. The squirrel still on the tree comes over to the squirrel stand, which now only consists of the chair since the table part fell off and we haven’t fixed it yet. He sits on the chair, backs his back against the tree and holds the front of the seat with his front feet to keep himself in place. He looks about as if to ask where his table and food are…he hangs on with one foot and twists his body to catch hold of the tree with his other front hand and takes off up the tree for more silly antics.
