Risk has been calling me, fear has been inviting me and adventure has been waiting. I have reached the point where avoiding the opportunity to dive in to all that beckons me is crushing my spirit and it feels like parts of me are dying on a daily basis. It's a gut wrenching pain, coupled with parts of my heart collapsing while my mind asks, "What if?" and then replies with a quick, "Who do you think you are?" It's an excruciating place to function from and I can't take it any more.
