Finding True North....part 2

I firmly believe that we create our own reality. Recently, since I've become more aware of this and more adept at putting into practice, I'm finding more and more real life proof that this is true.

Something that occurred to me along theses lines, during my morning walk, was this: We have to own our wants, our needs, our deep desires, for them to come into being. For me this has been a process of distilling these wants into the simplest of lists, of weeding out the extraneous, distracting wants, and finding the sweet, true places where my soul resides. 

It's become clear to me that what holds me back most in terms of living the life I want is the lack of belief that what I want is truly possible. And so I have told myself that I didn't want that, or wasn't sure if it was right. 

I've stopped doing that, for the most part. I need to remind myself at times that what I want is possible, and I'm sometimes very afraid that it isn't. But mostly, there's the small, sure voice in me that says it is possible, and that the dreaming brings it all to life.

What holds you back from what feeds your soul?
