What If I Fall?

What If I Fall?

I feel like I have been a “what if I fall” kind of person my entire life. Crippled by anxieties over things that will likely never happen. What if I fall? What if I fail? What if I let my kids down? Myself down? The thing is, in that crippling anxiety I am only stifling my growth because…

What if I fly?

In this revelation I packed up my husband and kids and drove to the closest craft store. I needed to make something to remind myself daily that in worrying about falling I lose all potential to fly. Hence, this sign. I bought a board, used some stain I already had in the garage and made the word template with my vinyl cutter. I contemplated looking for a feather outside my house, but wanted instant gratification so I bought a pack of them at the craft store.

Now this sign proudly hangs where I can see it everyday to remind myself…

What if I fly?
