“Safety is a very expensive illusion.” ~Julia Cameron
I have had a few experiences recently that have shown me the folly of perceived “safety” and the glorious freedom of stepping out of that illusion. The places I was made to believe were safe ended up being some sort of spring-loaded trap door (I knew this all along, I see in hindsight.)
I fell. I didn’t hit bottom. I just sort of bounced out and landed with my feet squarely on the ground but in a wild in a place I have never seen before. There is no safety net here. There is deep clarity, there is profound peace and there is the excitement of exploring unknown territory.
I am finding that there is nothing to be gained by playing it safe.
So I’m not.
