Monday Quote: Stephen King

“you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.” ~ Stephen King

I like this quote because, while it relates to writing, it is easy to apply this slogan to all things in life. I think many people do not begin things in life because they are not brave enough to take the leap…and rightly so. The world is scary. People live to stop us and tear us down. They willingly criticize. Failure is highly an option. But all of those are excuses. Because living with the feeling that I never tried…that’s what I fear the most.

It’s that first step that’s the hardest. It’s getting passed all the excuses of why we shouldn’t and just taking the jump. We need to start. We need to pursue. And, we need to not take no for an answer. That’s the only way to really live.

Happy last day of September!
