A Fork in the Road – Finding Courage Over Fear |Yutan and Omaha Nebraska Photographer

So, I find myself at a fork in the road and I feel like I’ve been standing here a long time.  I have tried to take a step down each road and I quickly pull my foot back each time.  The roads go in two very different directions – one road leads to my dream of being a full time photographer, but is laced with things that I’m afraid of.  The other is a nice easy path, the same path I have lived on for some time, but one that I know won’t make me happy in the end.  Do you ever feel this way?  I know all those sayings, like “If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.”, but those are so much easier to say than to actually act upon.  I have been searching for inspirational quotes to give me the courage to take that leap, and I have come up with a couple I really like.  C. JoyBell C. says, ‘“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”, and I really love this so much.  It’s really something I feel like I need to hear.  Another quote I love says, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” That comes from the mouth of nobel prize winner, Mr. Nelson Mandela .  Of course of all of these, the quote that inspires me the most and brings me the most comfort comes from the book that I rely on to lead me through life – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; lean not on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do and He will guide your paths.”  Proverbs 3:5-6.  I truly feel God has brought me to this fork in the road for a reason – I feel He has big things planned for me and my business.  Now, if I can just convince myself to trust that feeling I have and choose to walk down the side of the road that leads to my dream.  I’m almost there, I really am.  I just have to let go of my fear…
