"Ballerina I" watercolor (8 1/2" x 5 12")
Have you ever found yourself doing something that you never would have thought possible? When you look back at the way you were...what was holding you back? FEAR. If there is one thing I have learned, its that you can't wait until the fear goes away to do something ....that's an emotion that just won't dissipate on its own. You have to press through it. So how do you press on? For me, its my faith and a choice to change. What does my faith give me? the strength to stand up to the fear and the assurance that I will be OK, even if it doesn't turn out OK. But even if I didn't have the faith...I still need to make the choice...I have to choose to activate, to try that "Grande Jete".
