Today's thought is:

Don't be afraid to take a big step. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.David Lloyd George

Taking a risk can be scary. Whether the risk involves a new relationship, asking for a raise, being honest, or changing a behavior, it's still pretty hard to do. Sometimes we may wish we could approach a risk with only partial involvement, almost as if we had one foot inside a door and one outside. That way, if things get too difficult, we can always run away.

But we can't take a risk unless we commit ourselves to it. And we can't commit ourselves, unless we have faith that no matter what happens, we're okay. We may feel vulnerable, but we don't have to feel alone if we remember our Higher Power is with us.

Perhaps we took a risk today and are still feeling scared and exposed. Or maybe we're planning on taking a risk tomorrow and are filled with fear. Remember it's okay to have feelings of fear, doubt, and insecurity.

Tonight I will relax and know I never approach a risk without my Higher Power to guide me.
