Painting outside on my deck is one of my all-time-favorite things.  

It reminds me that this is the life I am choosing.  

That this is the good stuff I want to keep. 

Paint a little, watch my daughter swim.  Talk to my husband while he's sunning himself.  

Have a refreshing beverage.

I have all this and I am overwhelmingly thankful.

At the same time, having this makes it hard to move forward because I could lose it.

It makes me careful and cautious when daring and courage are being called for.

It makes me tip toe when I should run.

It makes me hold on when I should let go.

I know it doesn't have to be an either or.  It can be a both.
