Pearl fishing

‘Pearls do not lie on the sea shore if you desire one you must dive for it’ – Chinese proverb

I have lost my courage lately, I found this proverb. My volunteering life with HEALTHY MINDS picks up again next week. I will be doing a workshop on Monday, in front of a lot of volunteers who work with vulnerable families; to help raise their awareness of the stigma against mental health. I then start a two-out four-day training course starting on facilitating groups and workshops.  I’m also pushing myself to re-edit an article for one of the newsletters  I sometimes contribute towards. I’m also 12 weeks away from getting married!

It is okay to be scared and nervous. I won’t ( and you too mustn’t)let temporary fears get in the way of my ambitions and passion.

Take it day by day. I  find my lack of courage and confidence comes when I live in the future of ‘ shoulda’s and ‘couldas.

I am sure many of you can relate to this proverb. Let us go out with a bold stride and a sense of determination today :0
