letting go of fear

letting go of fear

Aug 9, 2016

Wow. Today my website went live.  Whatever that means.  Lol.  For those of you who know me well, I am not technical at all.

Before I hit the send button to let the world know I now have a blog, I was so nervous.  I was nervous that the task was too big, that people would laugh or think the site was ridiculous.

Exactly the opposite has happened – there is such an outpouring of support and genuine excitement and energy that fills me with gratitude.

But let’s get back to the fear.  I was so fearful that I was reaching outside of my comfort zone, so afraid that this is all new to me.

That fear hides in our habits--- running the same route because we know it, eating the same foods for fear of weight gain, working out like a crazy person to “be healthy”… and so on…

But at some point, fear gets old.  It hides the beauty and courage of the person inside.  Remember when you were a young child?  Running around without fear, trying new things, making new friends.

 

I watch my nieces and other children --- they know so much that we have forgotten as adults.  They embrace life, not allowing fear to hold them back.  For just today, I challenge you to try something new, something different.  Be playful, be curious… release the grip on that fear that holds you back.  Let NOTHING hold you back.
