Fear is always around us. It is in every corner, every crevice, every second, every moment of our existence. It pesters us, it prods at us. Poking us in the chest forcing us back into a corner. Telling us we have nothing to offer nothing to say or do for the world.
I have been consumed by fear alot in my life. I will not allow it anymore. I have a choice. A choice everyday to walk through fear. What will I choose?
The reality is, when we feal fear about a certain thing it is most likely the thing we most want to do. Fear creeps in telling us not to attempt it because what if we fail at the thing we really want to do. Then what? What is the point of living, then?
Fear is acting as a survival mechanism in this regard. It is honestly trying to keep us alive by not allowing us to attempt the thing that can simaltaneously give us the most joy and also give us the greatest since of failure.
Failure is ok though, it is not a death sentence. Remember, you don’t have to get it right the first time or even the second time. In reality, people don’t want to see perfect people.
No one is excited to watch a train happily chugging down the tracks, we want to see that Little Engine go flying off the tracks. Haha
We are sick like that as humans. And I am not calling you a train wreck, I am merely saying it is ok to make mistakes and look stupid. In fact I am finding that it is alot of fun actually.
Not to mention, if I continue to let fear keep me from doing the things that give me the most joy in life, well then my life will be a meaningless waist any way. What is the point of going to the grave having played it safe and hiding all the crazy, fun, exciting gifts that I was given from the world.
We am not here to hide for the LOVE OF PETE!!! We are here to Shine.
Do what scares you today. On the other side of fear is victory!
Have a Blessed and wonderful day
