I hope you are well! I am tired, but peaceful, and that’s progress..
I’ve been pondering this quote for a few weeks now:
I learned this, at least in my experiment; that if ones advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
There is evidence for it beyond Mr. Thoreau’s experiment, and there’s even some evidence it’s one of God’s intentions.
And I admit I often think
Does millimetre by millimetre really count as an advance?
Okay, yeah, you’re advancing, but you SURE ain’t confident, baby!
But you know what? I’m as confident as I can be in this moment, and I AM ADVANCING!
THAT is confidence enough.
So I’m going to relax a little, and trust.
Advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and cut yourself lots of slack when the confidence is tough, and the advancement slow.
