What is essential is invisible to the eye...

Fear of Success

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Wise words of the fox in The Little Prince
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

What if all that you dreamed possible 
were within your reach? 
Would you allow life's geyser to flow?
Or would you cap the steaming pressure 
and remain, determinedly, contained? 
Would fear stop you from accepting 
everything that is coming your way? 
How can we feel worthy enough to accept 
and open up to the life we've always wanted?
How can we know that this gift is not only possible,
but here?

Interrogating reality...

Thanks Katherine! I'm sure you are open to success. I think the fear comes when it's more than you expect for yourself...and comes with responsibilities. Thanks for the comment!

Yes, I do believe I'm running into that fear! But I keep moving into it..I don't think I can go back now. Thanks for sharing your lovely thoughts!
