Overcoming Fear

The title may change and everything might not be perfectly laid out…but here we are! Do you want to join my journey? I’ve always “boasted” that I dive in where fools dare to tread! I was lying to myself! Over the past few years, I’ve become keenly aware of FEAR and perfectionism on my part! Perfectionism that paralyzes me from taking any step- even when I know this is what I need to do! Anyone? Or just me? This past year- especially- has been one of turmoil, anxiety and dread! 3 feelings I don’t typically “entertain!” We are deep in the center of the unknown and big time stress – yet- in the midst- I feel certain God is using it all for something greater in our lives and because there is someone out there…..(is it you?) ….that needs to hear our story! This has been confirmed by insight from close friends and acquaintances! “You have to share your story because someone- maybe just one- will be encouraged.” Are you the one? So….here we are where we started! I’m facing my fear by sharing these words out loud and inviting others to join the conversation. What keeps you up at night? Or…like me….bolts you wide awake in the early hours of the morning with your heart pounding out of your chest? If you are like me you might qualify your answer- because you don’t feel like your fears even matter considering all others are going through. But that is also a lie! Fear is fear is fear and it is magnified by so many things. Perhaps the more fear you feel the closer you are to that thing you are destined to do but keep avoiding! Maybe stepping into your fear- all the way like a deep puddle up to your shoulders -is the only escape to reach the other side to find clarity and peace! Only one way to find out- right? Have a friend who needs to hear this? Let’s walk through it together. Find it on fb!
