NEW BEGINNINGS February 18, 2010

I stand at the precipice of a new beginning.

There are choices to be made.

Do I take that first frightening step

or stay where it is safe and familiar?

The choice is mine.

The first step will send me on a road

that will determine the outcome,

now in the future

beyond my control.

I choose to go forward

to take the first step

and walk on in confidence and optimism.

Yes, I will take that first scary step into the unknown.

My steps at first may be halting but I push on.

I may reach new heights

or I may decide to abandon the effort

but I do make the effort.

Let the experience take me where it may.
