Are you afraid of living a life of uncertainty; where you don’t know what is going to happen?

I am.

It is terrifying to know that I am not going to get a pay cheque at the end of the month.
It is scary to be putting myself out there to be criticised and put down by others for doing what I believe in.

It was so much easier when I could hide; when I knew what was going to happen, but it WAS A LIE.

When I hid, I wasn’t getting criticised openly as much, but people always make judgements and it is impossible to hide completely; I know; I tried for years!

When I was getting a regular salary each month, it felt safe, but it wasn’t really. The company could have gone under; the office could have moved, my job could have become redundant.

A job has an illusion of safety, but look at all the companies that have gone bust over the past few years and tell those employees that they were safe.

So, life is uncertain; that is the only thing that IS certain!

In The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins has to choose whether to go on an adventure or stay safe in his home. He chose the adventure, but if he hadn’t; if he had stayed, then eventually his home and all of his friends would have been destroyed by the evil that was sweeping the land. He would never have become a hero and good wouldn’t have been able to triumph.

Now you know what to do: Don’t let evil win; go on an adventure with Gandalf and become a legend! šŸ™‚

The real choice that you have to make is this:

Are you going to choose to do something uncertain that scares you or choose to do something uncertain that creates an illusion of safety?
