Time to bust out of prison! Life is short, take a leap, don't be afraid. I tell myself those things all the time, and the ego has gotten a bit more subdued. (Hallelujah!)
To be honest, I barely ever lived the "safe" life, but those bills have to be paid, and they do get paid because we live in a sea of abundance. Somehow we are fish that can't see the water for all the water... The more risks we take, the more confident we get. YES, I CAN DO IT! Small risks, and then bigger ones as the confidence muscle is being built.
I finished another painting, this one in many layers of paints that I masked out around the buddha figure. What is helpful in taking risks? The little still voice within when we quiet down enough to listen. Go for it!
