I have the idea to start something called Fearless Friday. I don't know if it already exists...if anyone knows, please let me know, and I can hop over and join up. My word for the year is BRAVE. And in working with this word and in living in this word, I'm really coming to realize just how much fear I have. And especially how often, I let fears stop me. It's actually the only thing that stops me. To put it in a nutshell, the fear of not being good enough.
This year is about not letting my life be guided by the fear of not being good enough. So I am going to Brave instead. I am going to look at where I don't want to go and figure out why. I am going to look at why I don't want to do things, why I procrastinate in certain areas, and figure out why. I am going to take those things and shine the light on them and I am going to create the life I want to live.
So, every week I'm going to post the Brave things I have done during the week on Fearless Fridays. It'll help me keep track of my progress, and it'll help me notice where I am walking my talk, and it'll help me practice being Brave. No matter how small a thing might seem to be, I am going to
Please, feel free to share any Brave things that you do during this week. I'd love to hear them!
So, here's what I did yesterday...
I made the calls to schedule my annual mammogram and physical therapy for my shoulder. I have been putting this off because of fear of the procedure/outcome and fear of the costs involved. I don't want to stick my head in the sand anymore. I want to take care of this and move on. And the funny thing about fears, when you face them, they have a way of shrinking.
