Why are we so dang afraid of everything? Why is courage so hard to muster?
I believe that courage is not being fearless, but instead still be able to act and live in the presence of your fear.
For years I lived my life in fear. My biggest fear was that one day someone would finally see me for who I was and know that I wasn't like everyone else. They would know that I was different, not the status quo, and I was terrified that someone would finally see me for my true self.
That fear didn't go away. It is still there to this day.
But when I finally summoned my courage and moved through my fear and began to share my true self with the world slowly, but surely it was TERRIFYING!
Here I was sharing my most true self, my most vulnerable part and giving it away to people and seeing if it would be welcome and well received. What if I finally shared myself and it was rejected? Or ridiculed?
That was the fear that I needed to move through. I needed to live through that fear and use my courage to finally share who I really was, what my passion was. It was scary, but the best thing that I have ever done.
Check out my vlog this week to see how and why I decided to stop living in fear and bring my courage forward.
This week I wrote a guided meditation to help you bring your courage forward and live your life with bravery. I wanted to help you feel like the unstoppable and incredible force that you are!
