Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step. What great words of wisdom! Taking that first step is always the hardest. Fear is a hindrance. Step past it.
Mission statement: I say be so busy about LOVING OTHERS in your life that you have no time for hate, regret or fear! Take the focus off of YOU and put it on G-d. Then you can truly live a life of LOVE with no regrets.
