Waiting for the other shoe...

It occurs to me,
of late,
that we waste vast amounts of time....
NOT in the pursuit of SUCCESS...
But rather....
in the pursuit of FAILURE....

EVERYTHING that we do,
or rather...
that MOST of us do...
EVERYTHING that we strive for....aspire to,,,,
MUST,,,
according to some dinosaur who wrote the
 "How to succeed..." book...
be peppered with at LEAST.....at LEAST.....
one or two or more CAVEATS....
escape clauses....
WAYS OUT when the INEVITABLE occurs...
when the OTHER SHOE DROPS....
In fact....
we spend WHOLE LIFETIMES
""""HEDGING our bets""""...
For GOD's sake...
there are entire FUNDS set up with the SOLE purpose ...
of """HEDGING"""...
So...
Here's a suggestion from your humble Blog Mistress...
How 'bout...
just GOING FOR IT ?
How 'bout you lose the fear entirely ??
EXPUNGE it.... ERADICATE it...
How 'bout we move FORWARD in BARE FEET ???
This way...
There's NO SHOE to drop !!!!
How 'bout believing...
with EVERY FIBER IN our MINDs AND BODies....
that we WILL succeed ???
What would THAT look like ??
Food for thought on this cold, winter day....
