Time reveals all things. That’s the first sentence that comes to mind. Not sure why. Just does. I feel so deeply about things.
There have been people who dislike that I don’t pretend that I believe in saying things exactly as they are. No lying, no fear, just letting things be how things are. Good or bad. I think my closest friends and sisters would agree that if they asked me something I would give them a straight honest answer.
Fear, pretending and avoidance can cripple a person. I know because I’ve been there. I still face fears. Sometimes it’s easy sometimes it’s a slower process.
Theres a several quotes about fear the artist who started this 21 Day Challenge reminded us of today that ring true for me. Maybe they will for you too so I’ll share them now:
We’re all afraid. We just have to get to the point where we understand it doesn’t mean that we can’t also be brave. –Brene Brown
Every day, we make a thousand little compromises, avoid opportunities, actions and people--all so that we can stay away from the emotion of fear. The alternative? To dance with it. To seek out the interactions that will trigger the resistance and might make us uncomfortable. –Seth Godin
I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me. –Cheryl Strayed, Wild
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure. –Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Thank you all for being here. For supporting me and cheering me on. You matter and are loved.
This piece of pocket art is $12.00 and reminds me to just be. Don’t worry about what others think so much. Just love deeply, care deeply and just be.
