‘The step between prudence and paranoia
is short and deep.
Paranoia avoids cars altogether.
Prudence washes with soap;
Paranoia avoids human contact altogether.
Prudence saves for old age;
Paranoia clings to every penny!
Prudence prepares and plans;
Prudence calculates the risks and takes the plunge;
paranoia never enters the water.’

I read this today and it had a profound effect on me. I have been extremely busy at work, and coupled with my upcoming book, it was like walking in a sea of unending deadlines. But then I paused and allowed these words sink into my spirit, mulling it over, I realised that as humans, we’re certainly creatures of comfort, and taking the plunge could be easier said than done.
What do I mean by plunges? They’re simply changes, making new decisions and following them through. Having faith in God and yourself (if you believe in God) and stepping out to make the needed changes to your life. To reach a glorious destiny, you have to stop holding back. Some have changed their lives by going to college and following their dreams, others signed up for reality shows, and some, just improving their skills by attending night school.
But you must first take the plunge!
I need to apologise for my silence, I have been inundated with work and had certainly missed a lot of posts. Please bear with me, and I’ll catch up soon. I’ll be travelling out of London this weekend but would be back next week, before then, I’ll still visit your wonderful websites!
Have a fantastic month! October had always been my best month (I was born in October! ) and as the weekend inch closer, just have fun and enjoy life!
Much love, always!
