Hello Authentic Lovers–
How are you guys doing? I’m doing well. Tired but well. It’s cold and rainy on my side of town, making me want to go home and sleep even more.
So today I thought we would talk about hesitations. I know, it’s so exciting…hesitations 😉 A hesitation is “the action of pausing or hesitating before saying or doing something.” A synonym would be to doubt, or be filled with uncertainty.
I always marvel at the way we live our lives. I always wondered why it is so much easier to doubt, and to be filled with unbelief then it is to live full of faith, regardless of what is pushed our way. We never struggle to think negatively, or to think with doubt…but rather, we struggle with thinking positively and walking in faith. The bad always seem easier than living in the pathway of good.
I know that I have lived a life full of hesitation, one where I pause to think about what’s to come and then talk myself out of doing something. It’s like for a moment, I am fearless and I will attempt anything; but then I come to myself and I start to think about why I shouldn’t do something spontaneous…maybe even fun. I’ve gotten better over the years, as I stopped people pleasing but hesitation is real and it comes to rob you of the joy in that moment.
Today, I challenge you to live without hesitation. Without hesitation live in the moment (present) and enjoy what’s around you. If you want to dance but you’re not a good dancer- dance anyway. If you want to hum a tune but you don’t think you can sing, sing/hum anyway. Stop worrying about how you’ll look and what others think. Don’t even allow yourself to talk you out of happiness- be happy and live fearless. Without hesitation love freely!
We’ll be walking this journey of fearlessness together, and to be honest: I am so excited!
Until next time,
