What will my life look like as I start to loosen up the reins? What am I searching for? I'm using two methods to discover this: The Joy Diet by Martha Beck and personal coaching.
One area I've identified is that I cut back my own dreams. For example, for the last few years I've tried to put together a social justice film series for my church. The first year was great, but after that it didn't go so well. This year, I've decided to go bigger and bolder. I'm asking local theaters to host it. This will make it a ticketed event. My careful side is already trying to cut this back - to keep me from even making the initial request. But now I've put it out there, so I've got to do it!
