Writers Horoscope January 2: Today, you do one thing…

that scares you.

I picked up a journal with that message **in early 2017 and there were days I was scared to even pick it up since it was filled with nudges to leave my comfort zone.

And there it was last Friday.

As usual, with my usual random selection approach to consuming books, I turned to an unused page.

This one featured a quote by Henry David Thoreau:

We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.

And, son of a gun, if I didn’t do just that when, in a Facebook group, I solicited input from fellow teachers for a long-simmering book idea.

After all, in 2018, why not you?

Just lift yourself up from the chair. That’s step one. And see what happens.
