I took Gabby Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie training this past month and she spoke a lot
about fear. I realized that I was holding back so many choices in work based on
my fear. What was I afraid of? Like Gabby pointed out, both the fear of failure and
the success. The success you are probably wondering? Once I meditated on this,
I realized I was guilty of it too.
What did I do from there? I decided to take the plunge on a start up
(top secret for now). I created my first blog and plugged in a sign up box for a
mailing list. I did my first very brief Instagram live. That was super vulnerable and
scary! Facebook will be next. I registered for a therapeutic yoga training my heart
has been pulling at for years. There have been many steps taken
since the training with Gabby, and so much more to do.
Has it been easy? Not at all. Has it been scary? Very. But do you know what has
been on the other side of it all? Freedom. For the freedom rests in the courage to
step into fear. And do you know what else? I don’t want to be at the end of my
life looking back with regrets because I gave into my fears and didn’t give it my all.
Life is too damn short. The time is now.
