“How would you act or do if you had no feeling of fear or guilt?”
It has been a while since i asked myself that. Actually it was yesterday and the day before. And I never really wrote down the answer yet. Which is weird because I like to write. And I also like to exercise, meditate, journal , read, eat. But I tend to these things not as much as I like or in the way I want to. You know what I mean? I mean I exercise but sometimes I don’t do all crunches. I meditate and find myself thinking about other things. I read but sometimes not all of it. Do you have it too?
The saying “Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear”. It’s very popular, because it’s true. We know it, We can do something about it. But. Why don’t we have it all then? Why do we feel unhappy even if we have some of the stuff, things or even accomplishments done we did not think about 10 years ago? Why can’t we just let fear go?Because It is a sneaky little bastard. Fear, the feeling, it is there but, you tend to not know it’s there. It hides behind:
I think now, maybe fear is supposed to be there. So I can’t say throw it all away. But I can say, you can use the fear. Do it. Before it uses you. Embrace the fear. Use the emotion. Acknowledge that it is there and think: what am I missing out on if I don’t follow my passion because of this. What is the price I am going to pay? Is it important enough? Fear maybe says: “I am going to stumble”. But hey, maybe you are going to stumble upon something great. Getting back to the question in the beginning of the post. One of my personal answers was: Having a great and useful blog.
For me. It took a while to get here, i am still the hell not where i am supposed to be. While I know for years enough of the technical stuff to get things up and running. This is only here since the beginning of the year and then i also stopped. Because I always said, but what should I write about? What do I want to write about? “I’ll think about it later.” And there it was I felt it. This was me fearing something I wanted to do. And then for some reason I just started to write:
I am here, This is me, I am working and embracing my fear. And I can tell you this. Doing the thing you fear, really does kind of undo the feeling of fear. Tell me what is on your other end of it? And what are you willing to do for it?
With a twinkle and a smile,
