don't be afraid to dance



You want to do it. You know you might be able to get it right. But the courage just isn't with you...what if they laugh, or what if something goes wrong? You'll be forever branded with it, won't you? Maybe it's better not to try at all. You don't have to take the chance after all.

Let me tell you, that's something I struggle to not listen to. It's thrown at me constantly by myself mentally, whenever I think of taking a chance, whenever I think of trying something new.
But the thing is, I've finally come to learn - taking the chance and failing feels so much better than not taking the chance at all. And even then, taking a chance does not always lead to failing. There are many triumphs to be made.
So don't be afraid to dance like nobody is watching. If you fall, it's okay, you can still get up again. It's not impossible to pick yourself up.

Don't be afraid to take the chance, darling.

  2. Lovely post as always :)
    And when we fail, who gets the say that it is failure? What is failure any way? We always think of it as a horrible thing, but really, when we don't succeed at something the first time we try it isn't bad at all. We learn something new. We're not failures at all, but learning new things! God loves a willing heart. A heart willing to take the leap of faith, willing to trust Him as we step out of our comfort zones and try something new. Because its in those times He shows us something new. He teaches us something new. When we fail, lets not beat ourselves up, but get back up and learn from it. God uses our struggles, our mistakes, our trials, our "failures" to show us something new. To teach our hearts something we could have never been taught if we never fell down.

  5. Aww thanks for this! I am so shy when I want to try new things, because I'm afraid I'll fail or something. But it's so much better than not taking that chance at all! :)
