We have two choices at the edge of almost: We can retreat because we’re at the end of what we can see, or we can take the step into the unknown and soar.
I wonder how many have traveled to the edge of almost, and turned back because it looked like a dead end. The path ended, and ahead was an expanse of nothingness. Or so it appeared that way. But just over the edge was what their journey had prepared them for. Their dream, their future, their calling.
But because it was unseen, they lost hope, they lost determination, they lost what they were so close to attaining.
Just one more step would have taken them over the edge to be able to soar… to their dream, their calling, their passion.
Today, we might be finding ourselves on the edge of almost.
Yes, it may seem comfortable to retreat back. It’s scary to not be able to see the next step. It’s can appear to be easier to give up on your dreams and aspirations, than to keep moving forward.
But what follows are the regrets, the “what ifs,” the “I could haves, should haves.” And the choice to retreat becomes a harder one to swallow in the days, months, years to come.
Friend, I urge you, don’t give up. Don’t let yourself retreat. You’ve come too far, and everything you’ve worked for, dreamed for, planned for might appear in that very next step. Don’t be afraid. Go for it!
Take the next step. And soar!
