If I used the word ‘FEAR’ then, I can safely say, I live in a constant state of fear.
I fear that I will never see my potential fully realized. I fear that I am too much. I fear that I am not enough. I fear taking the risk. I fear not taking the risk. I fear getting to the end of my life with the dreaded sentence, “I wish I had _______.”
So, you see, I can not use the word ‘FEAR.’ I would drown in it. I would suffocate in it’s huge grasp on all aspects of my life. ‘FEAR’ is like a cockroach in your home. If you let one in, before you know it you have an infestation.
So, I refuse to acknowledge FEAR. Instead, I embrace ‘EXCITEMENT.;
I am EXCITED to live a life and travel a path that will help me to achieve my greatest potential here on Earth.
I am EXCITED that God made me vibrant, energetic and full of love.
I am EXCITED to from and learn to be the best wife, mother, friend, daughter, etc that I can be.
I am EXCITED to take the risk, and, no matter what the outcome, I will enjoy and learn from the journey.
I am EXCITED every single day of my life to live my most authentic life possible so that when I look back at the end of my days I can proudly acknowledge that I created miracles with what I was given and that the world is a better place because I was here.
So, you see, I can not use the word FEAR – if I did, I wouldn’t have this blog. I was scared to write this blog, scared to create it, scared to put it out there. What if no one reads it, if no one likes it?
I hope you’re glad that I felt the fear and did it anyway.
I had to rearrange my brain and get excited about the possibility of my blog helping someone. THAT is what gets me to act.
