It’s daring to be curious about the unknown, to dream big dreams, to live outside prescribed boxes, to take risks, and above all, daring to investigate the way we live until we discover the deepest treasured purpose of why we are here. Luci Swindoll –“I married Adventure”
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Living a comfortable safe life, does not always extend my potential, or help me evolve into my true-self and purpose. To live fully in life, means accepting uncomfortable challenges and walking into the arena to face my fears.
It is not an easy task by any means, but in this space, I will find my courage and my strength and it’s in this space, that I will find my true potential and passion in life.

Some of the best things have come to me when I ‘felt the fear and did it anyway.’
I agree Eliza, feeling fear is a normal emotion, it’s what we do with it that counts. 😀
i like this encouragement, Karen
as sometimes it seems
daring to simply look
at or say hello to someone else!
other times there have been “courageous”, on my part
acts that needed immediate response 🙂
I agree David. These are great examples of how different our fears might be and how much courage it takes to act on them. Thankyou courageous friend. 🙏🏻🌿🍃
Sometimes we just need to jump, then we find out, we survive and grow and nothing bad was happening. Our build-in fear can drive us to much, sometimes we need to take the risk too.
Great post, Karen 🙂
Well said Irene, it is a leap of faith at times. But good things can come from that place 🙏🏻
I agree 🙂
Beautiful words trusting we can live a great life, experiencing it all… much love to you Karen. Looking forward to receiving your guest feature for next Monday x barbara
Thankyou Barbata! Yes and for the reminder I will get to it and send it to you. 💚🍃
Marching into discomfort. Oh what a feeling when you come through. How difficult is it too enter!
I agree.Entering the arena is so difficult!! But victory is awesome. Thanks Mr K 🙏🏻
My favorite quote ever, love TR. Here is one from me, from my most recent blog post.
“It is impossible for another human being to see or feel the world, or the essence of life itself, exactly the way you do.”
To dare greatly I think, is to believe no matter what happens and no matter how many times you fail, you were meant to be here doing exactly what you’re doing right now. Every second is an opportunity to invite in what matters to you or to change your path. Stay true to being uniquely you!
Thankyou! Beautiful words that speak the truth. 💚🙏🏻
This is amazing, and so encouraging. Thank you Karen and Namaste.
Thankyou for your encouraging support Nico! Namaste 🍀🙏🏻🍃
Thanks Reena 💚
Reblogged this on Anything is Possible! and commented:
After we’ve studied, and consulted, and prayed, and listened, and prayed some more about our fears, there comes a time for courage – a time to walk forward with faith.
Wonderful. Thankyou Joanna 💕
