dive in

I call this my brave painting...
I bought this painting off the wall of a local bagel shop.
It is painted on the glass pane of an old window.
I have no idea if it will last. But I really love it.
It makes me think of doing something brave.
Of diving off into the abyss of the unknown even when its scary.
I love how huge the unknown seems to be.
This painting makes me feel brave.
I know this has been a bit of a recurring theme with me lately. I have something coming up that is going to take quite a bit of bravery. It will be hard but it will also bring me to a much better place then where I am now. It needs to be done and I have been putting it off for a long time.
This time I am going to be brave.
I think often the things I write
here are in my head
in large part because
I am trying to convince myself.
Anyway, I had a bit of a tough day yesterday, but today I woke up with more resolve, a clear head and a clearer picture of what I need to do. Being afraid does not have to be a reason not to act.
Wish me luck!
