The gap feels a lot bigger than it actually is –– it’s the small space between what we want and what we currently have. The gap is the fear.
Sometimes it’s divorce. Other times it’s commitment. Sometimes it’s starting the business. Other times it’s doubling down on the career. Sometimes it’s having the tough conversation. Other times it’s keeping the tough conversation to one’s self.
The gap is small. No bigger than a foot wide. One step and we can stand on the other side.
But, when most of us approach the gap, we look down. And, when we look down we see that it falls for miles and miles and miles.
Or, perhaps that’s just the story we’ve been telling ourselves.
