Today I bought a new journal to keep me sane. I have to write to get my mind in the right place each day. Most days its meaningless sentences that get put on paper, but it is helpful to get it out. My new journal has a saying on it to do something you are afraid of. So true. I really believe this.
For years, I was afraid to journey into a graduate degree program. Thought I wasn’t good enough, or smart enough. Fear certainly played it’s part for a long time. I’m so glad I overcame this fear. I am moving into a new fear: moving and starting my own business. OK, that’s two fears.
The thing about fear is that if it’s a healthy fear, I think it could be telling you that’s exactly the direction you are supposed to go toward. Run to it! Once you conquer the fear you may be surprised how much you can accomplish.
