This week’s prompt is: Purpose and the Art of Holding Back
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”
“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing”.
Many of us search for a purpose, mission, or long to live out some particular dream but never venture outside of the box where we feel the most comfortable. What are the reasons for this? Safety? Security? Fear? Rationalism? Are you living your life to your fullest? Is there something missing that you are holding yourself back from going after?
*What is it that you would most like to do with your life? Are you doing that now? What is keeping you from achieving your goals? Do you have an unrealistic idea of success? Does living a full life have anything to do with being successful? Tell us about your dreams, and why you are or are not going after them.
*Write a short story, poem, or share a picture or song that talks about your life’s purpose and what is keeping you from living it.
*Any inspired offering that somehow relates to the dreams you are keeping yourself from.
