You may or may not have noticed I haven’t posted anything on here for a long time and the only honest answer I have for that is ….
Fear has been stopping me
Fear of being rejected
Fear of being laughed at
Fear of people talking about me
Fear of exposure
Fear of social media
Fear of lack of control
Fear of perfection
Fear of getting it wrong
I know fear makes me feel I want to hide, makes me shut down, not want to try, not want to engage. Fear leads to anxiety, anxiety being the brain looking for worst-case scenario, the brain over thinking.
But brain…is that true? Where’s the evidence for that?
We are in control of our brain… your brain is like an unruly child, if left unattended with a box of matches and a bottle of vodka all hell lets loose!!!
It natters and screams if doesn’t get its own way, whines if it has to do something it doesn’t want to do, stamps it feet in defiance and goes off in a strop…
What I am learning is if I look at my fear, break it down, and ask myself the question…. is that true?
It could be it, could not be…
What are you going to do let your child run the show?
I know when I have stepped forward and faced a fear I have been pleasantly surprised on the fact I felt proud of myself and it has lead to new and exciting things.
What are you afraid to do today?
What’s stopping you?
What small step could you do today towards facing that?
Today my step was posting this
Love to you
