Writer Anna Quindlen:
Here is my favorite biblical direction: Be not afraid. It’s truly the secret of life. Fear is what stunts our growth, narrows our ambitions, kills our dreams.
So fear not.
…You are surely afraid: of leaving what you know, …of taking the wrong path, of failing the right one. But you can’t allow any of that to warp your life. You must have the strength to say no to the wrong things and to embrace the right ones, even if you are the only one who seems to know the difference….
…So carry your courage in an easily accessible place, the way you do your cellphone or your wallet…. Take a leap of faith. Fear not.
