When you have come to the edge of all light that you know
And are about to drop of into the darkness of the unknown;
Faith is knowing one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid to stand on
Or you will be taught to fly.
~Patrick Overton

Ever embarked on on a new adventure?  Gone somewhere new in your life?  Done something that you haven't had a model or a manual for?   It is stresssssssssssssssssssful!  Isn't it?  You feel like you are floundering about and trying to take act thoughtfully.  You are putting in your research, and putting in your effort.  And still there are those people who stand on the sidelines.. not really clear what your mission is, not aware of all the details.. putting their two cents in.. and sometimes not very nicely!  Add to it all that self talk you already have... somewhere along the lines of  "Why the heck are you doing this?  You're not capable!  You don't know enough!  You don't have what it takes!"  How do you keep your motivation going?  How do you keep up the pace despite all those fears from within and those projected on to you?  How do you trust the process?

Surround yourself with those who know and love the real you.

Focus on the feedback of those with experience and expertise.

Make a daily practice of taking in inspiration -- from books, from the internet, from other people.

Accept mistakes as part of the journey.  Life is an experiment!

Trust in your ability to work through the obstacles.. and accept nothing less.

Bon voyage!
