Instead of circling, I need to step in, commit, and give connection my best shot with all of me present, willing, and open.
Stepping in is commitment.
Stepping in is not just a big toe in the water; stepping in is commitment to the flow of your river of life.
Say a wholehearted, Yes!
Give yourself a full chance with all of you present, making an effort. Dive in.
Stepping in is scary because there’s no control and no guarantee.
You may be mocked, or teased, or ignored.
You may feel alone in the river.
You may feel your river is different from other rivers in a way which will go unreconciled.
But, if you do not step in, you will never know; you will always be left guessing.
If you don’t step in, you will live your life in woulda, coulda, shoulda.
