Facing Fear

One of my biggest triggers is fear.  I’m afraid of much less than I used to be but when I approach something outside my comfort zone, my fear is very, very intense.  Eckhart Tolle says that feeling is the ego resisting change…observing without judging takes away it’s power.

I had a personal trainer ask me once, “what would you do if you could not fail”.  She may have well asked me “what would you do if you were not afraid?”.  My answers were pretty intense.  They included dancing and changing the world.

I see how fear of success has held some of my friends back.  They are brilliant, capable and completely able to move forward but something inside them holds them back.  It’s easier to see in others than myself.  Now that I am practicing treating myself as a friend, I’m starting to believe in my potential.

Life truly is a journey.  Everything is temporary.  Everything… If I try something new and I don’t like it, I can change it.  Healthy people can change their minds.

 

From my heart to yours,

Thanks for reading
