The voice within whispers and sometimes shouts. When it does I feel my heart start to race. I step back and there is where I want to stay. There where it is safe, there where it is comfortable. You see, its the voice inside my head that tells me its too scary out there. It tries to convince me that if I move I will fall.
Then there is another feeling from deep inside that feels more like a strong pulse…it is my heart. The steady beat reminds me that I am alive and I have a purpose. There is a reason I am where I am but I am not meant to stay stagnant. With every step forward the pulse becomes stronger and the voice weaker. If I pause in the midst of doubt, I hear the voice quietly telling to stay still.
I realize that the only way for me to silence the voice in my head is to follow my heart. I might fall but in the end I will accomplish my purpose. I will do something meaningful with this life God has given me, I will live a life of no regrets.
