Do It Anyway!

You might put your love and trust on the line
It’s risky, people love to tear that down
Let ’em try
Do it anyway
Risk it anyway


Sometimes it’s really hard to get started, because you are so worried about what other people think, or what the unexpected outcomes might be, or that you might fail.  Sometimes the disapproval of others takes over, when you know inside what is right. Sometimes things just seem too hard. It seems like inertia is a resting place, but you can sit still. Everything is always changing – everything.

And if you’re paralyzed by a voice in your head
It’s the standing still that should be scaring you instead
Go on and
Do it anyway
Do it anyway

Making no choice isn’t an option. Doing nothing isn’t an option. No choice is a choice. Not voting is choosing to let other people make your choices for you. Not keeping yourself knowledgeable about what is going on in the world is choosing to make decisions blindly. Not standing up for the things you believe in because others might look askance is choosing to let those causes falter. Not honoring your body with the rest it needs or the exercise it craves is choosing poor health over welfare.

There are always choices. You always have to make one. What will it be?
