Yesterday a lady told me that she is about to start a new business as a massage therapist. She learned a lot in the courses she took and now she can't wait to start. Unfortunately she met some people with rather old beliefs about starting something new.
'You have to make a business plan first', said one person. 'Did you already register yourself as a massage therapist? Do you have a practice where you can do the massages?' The questions just kept coming.
This is how she felt before: Relaxed, curious, eager to start, maybe a little unsure.
This is how she felt after the avalanche of questions: Afraid, numb, paralyzed, ready to drop her new project.

This summer one leaf of a potentially harmful plant was found in a packet of rocket (a very tasty kind of salad) in Germany. And Germany went crazy. Imagine what fear can do with one leaf of salad! During the whole summer nobody bought rocket. Fear can paralyze us. Fear can distract us from our own truth. So what can you do when you meet people that are more than happy to spread some fear and make you feel panicky? Tell them 'no thank you' and walk away. Don’t let them spoil the joy that you feel about new things that are evolving in your life.

Find your own way. Don’t think it through too much. Let your soul show you the easy and graceful way. Maybe you feel self conscious at first, because so much of yourself becomes visible. But on the other hand - isn't that beautiful? We want to see you. Not another generic person who tries to fit in.
So my thought of the day is: be original!
