A thought for a Sunday

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward."

Amelia Earhart
(1897 – missing 1937, declared dead 1939)

This is just the post I need right now. I'm leaving my steady, paying job to take a leap of faith and write my book..
Deep breath. Intuitively I know it's the right move and it will be a big change for me in so many ways.
The room is covered with paper tigers.

I have similar feelings as I count down to my 'retirement' (19 working days to go).

The paper tigers are always there, always will be, but experience teaches us to see them as they are. Harmless in comparison to the peace and contentment that comes with expressing ourselves as we are.

Good luck with the book.

Oh and here's a link I saw today at Lay Scientist, just for you.

19 days huh! I can't recall if you've said what your plans are?
There can be lots of joy to be found in taking a different path! Good luck to you as well...

thanks for the link... I'll probably use it later in the week! Probably not quite as scientifically!
