A Sprinkle of Fairy Dust
The ezine dedicated to bring you inspiration, innovation and fun
Happy New Year – 16 days into it and going strong. I love this time of year; fresh slate, new calendar, it’s invigorating.I don’t know about you, but I love going to the movies. Checking out for a few hours and being transported to another place by a story on the big screen, especially when it’s a happy story.
Recently our family ventured out to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I settled into my seat and yet was blown away with the story.Each of us have a bit of Walter in is, some more than others.Growing up Walter wanted to explore and go on adventures, see the world and have fun. Feeling the need to financially help his mom after the passing of his father in his teens he settled into seeing financial security rather than living his dreams. He was so consumed with doing the “right” thing and security, that he lead a dull and boring life.
We witness a fabulous transformation of Walter who finally moves past the fear and takes inspired action in pursuing something he really desires. He goes from someone who frequently daydreamed of adventure to now on his own real life adventure.
Fear is one of those things that stops many of us from living fully. The fear of what others will think, the fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of………….
At many times in my life I’ve felt like Walter; worried, fearful, frozen and stuck dreaming rather than doing. Yet I know that I’m not alone. The biggest challenge most of my clients face is stepping out, taking inspired action and ignoring what others say. Tuning out the voice that says “you can’t, you’re crazy” and tuning into the one that guides them in the right direction.
While not every step we take in following our dreams is assured it will be easy or take us exactly where we want to go, if we don’t take steps we’ll never get anywhere.
If you haven’t seen The Secret Life of Walter Mitty take some time out of your busy schedule and treat yourself to an inspiring story on the big screen.
Wishing you big dreams, big adventure and lots of fun!
All the best ~
