A turning point?

There are moments in our day-to-day lives that make us stop and think? And there are moments in our life which confirm and re-affirm all that we may say to one another but are at times scared or challenged to act upon due to the barriers that we our selves create.

What am I trying to say?

That we should never be scared to do that which we know is right and that which we would advice others to do simply because we fear not the outcomes necessarily but the actual act of divulging information which we consider to be sensitive or personal and should not really be accessible to the other?

Again what am I trying to say?

In the words of Louisa May Alcott (the author of Little Women)

“I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.”

It is only by setting foot on a boat and taking control of the tiller that one will learn to sense how one's boat will respond to the waves, whatever the weather may bring.

And is only after this that we can judge not only were to direct our tiller to but more courageously when to let go!
