"One can never consent to creep when one feels the impulse to soar."
~ Helen Keller
There have been so many times I've seen people in a situation where their inner flame of passion for life has been quelled by an inability to overcome the obstacles that keep them from attaining all that they could.
For some, myself included, fear is one barrier - whether it's emotional fear of being put down by others, physical fear that there will be some type of physical pain or loss involved, fear of the unknown, or even the fear of not knowing how to deal with success.
Other obstacles can be just as immobilizing - finances, time, illness, overburdening commitments, lack of support... and as a result, we "consent to creep" along in our daily lives, simply getting by when, in our heart of hearts, we want to soar.
I hope if you're one of the "creepers", that you'll think a little bit about what's holding you back and at least consider making some small changes to help prepare the way for the day when you will soar!
Here are some lovelies to inspire you :)
