I’m not sure how it happened. Maybe it stems from being bullied as a child. Or maybe it’s from my exposure to major health crises at a young age. It could be society’s influence. Or maybe it’s just me. Either way, I have spent the majority of my life filled with fear. And I must say, I’m getting pretty tired of it.
I’m scared they won’t like me;
Scared to be a failure;
Scared to be alone;
Scared to get hurt;
Scared to live in a meaningless life;
Scared to pursue dreams.
Constantly, my mind and heart are plagued with worry and fear. Thoughts that are often contradictory, overwhelming, and debilitating. I’ve finally arrived to a point in my life where being fearful is no longer an option. I want to live a life that is rewarding. I want to be an agent of change. I want to inspire others. I want to inspire myself. T fear I have harboured for so long is no longer serving me, and I’m ready to let it go.
To help me figure things out, I have signed up for the 30 Days of Brave Challenge by Intention Inspired. Here’s what it’s all about:
Some people might think it’s hokey, and that’s OK. I’m at the point where I just can’t continue on living and feeling this way. I am capable of incredible things. I have been paralyzed into inaction, stuck in a life of mediocrity, and have believed up to now that this is just how life goes. That is not the truth that I’m going to frame my reality with anymore. Change starts with me, and change starts now.
Welcome to my new life.
