Where in this Moment

I am standing at the gate of opportunity; a wide open space.

I am here thinking about a post by Seth Godin about how it isn’t necessarily the how or the why that matters most in your journey; it is where. Where is the fear?

Where is the fear that is holding me back?

Fear  is where I think I am not able to define what it is that I want to do…

It is where I think I am not able to do it because somehow I am not enough…

It is where I think I am not finding the right “place”…

It takes me to the how…

I can feel what it is I want to do. How do I act upon it?

I know what it is I want to do. How do I explain it? Ship it?

I am where I am and we aren’t planning to move. How do I make this work here?

And the why…

I want to help people connect with themselves, with ideas, and with each other.

I want dance to serve as way of healing, self-discovery, and expression.

In looking back at that list, it seems fear is where I think I am. But where am I really?

For now I am imagining this open space as a sheep meadow. It is green, vast, and beautiful. There’s nothing scary about sheep.

Where is the fear that is holding you back?

What is it holding you back from doing?

  1. Lovely sentiments amid the questions you raise. Questions are a normal part of life as we attempt to grow and mature. Just know, you are in this with the rest of us and that music and dance are wonderful bridges connecting where we came from to where we are moving.

    Your questions remind me of the main character in the first two books in my book series: 84Ribbons and When the Music Stops-Dance On. Marta is constantly looking for her path. Her choices are scattered all over the place. She needs to stop, listen to the music in her life and select the melody that gives her the greatest satisfaction.

    Enjoy your journey!
