I might be shy. You might be shy. Or, we may not be. But, sometimes shy or bashful or quiet or introverted or awkward or unsure or confused or overwhelmed or a whole host of other labels can put us in a space of reservation.
A sort of holding space until we are ready to advance.
Sometimes it's a stuck place or an immobilized space or a weird space or a yucky space that we don't want to be in but we won't leave. We know it. It knows us. Keeps us safe and known but maybe just maybe wanting to step out, maybe just maybe wanting to try something new, maybe just maybe thinking, dreaming or fantasizing about other possibilities.
Sometimes, we are afraid to take steps forward. Sometimes, we are afraid to let go of the past reasons why taking steps forward may not work for us. Sometimes, we are not ready. The possibility of forward movement is simply, well just too much to process.
So we stay where we are, thinking, dreaming and fantasizing.
But sometimes we are not aware that by stepping out, we are essentially opening the door, clearing a path, for others. Maybe. Sometimes it's opening the door for us. Laying the path for us to go forward. Sometimes, it's freeing. And just like in the song I'm listening to it helps us to "stand a little taller"
In Love and Stepping,
Music: Stronger by Kelly Clarkson
Vibe: Low energy energized. Strong and confident.
Special: I spoke up yesterday. Shared my truth. That was cool.
Thanx: To AM for providing the forum to share.
Musings: I used the word "sometimes," a lot. And "maybe." Hmm...
More Musings: I don't fully get this tag cloud up there but we'll see. Studio of our mind? Art of the soul? I wonder where it gets its ideas.
