In August my friend, Kathy Drue, published a post about fear in her thought-provoking blog Simply Here. Earlier this month my friend, Daisy Hickman, published a post about fear in her warm and welcoming blog SunnyRoomStudio. If you don’t already know these two wise women, please go introduce yourself—they’ll make you feel right at home.
Fear can be debilitating—it can cause us to freeze in our tracks (emotionally or otherwise), cutting us off at the knees.
Fear can be a leverage point—(emotionally or otherwise), helping us get from Point A to Point B.
One of my clients recently said, “Laurie, how can you possibly relate to what I’m going through? You have the perfect life—you don’t have anything to be afraid of.”
I’ll be the first one to say that her perception of me is not accurate. But as I shared with Kathy, I’ve always found it a good practice to set my fears down so that I can stand on them, and step up into joy.
What do you do with fear?
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
