Say It Out Loud
We are taught from a young age to keep our deepest longings quiet.
Think about making a wish and blowing out the candles.
“Don’t say it out loud or it won’t come true.”
This teaches us to stay quiet about the things we really want: the stuff, the situations, the desires of our heart.
Keep it quiet.
Maybe that’s because we know there’s no magic, maybe it’s because we don’t want to burden anyone else with the accountability, maybe it’s because we don’t want to burden ourselves with the accountability.
Because, if you say it out loud you need to acknowledge that it’s a real thing.
But saying it out loud is exactly what you finally need to make a change in your life.
Make the wish.
