All that is holding me back is a mirage of restraint. My chains are laying all around me in a pile, fused into their position by rust and lack of use. I am standing here having been set free. However, I have remained here for all these years as though I am still shackled. To take a single step forward is what needs to be done. The pull to stay is not from what once held me captive but from the familar chains in my mind. The perceived strength from these restraints inside me feel stronger than any outward steel. Its required I move. To stay where Ive been would be an insult to the One who paid the price for me to be free. No longer will I hold myself captive. Its my time. Its my year. The time is now! Step.
