FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT AFRAID, palms sweating, heart racing, blood pumping.
I used to live with so much fear and anxiety.
I lived in fear pretty much constantly. I could never just relax and trust.
I lived too much in my head, and not enough from my heart and soul, my intuition.
I was afraid to do something, I was afraid to NOT do something.
I was afraid of being seen, judged, putting myself on video, public speaking, putting my heart and soul into my work, fear of judgement, fear of saying what I really believe, putting it all out there on a podcast, online programs, live video, writing it in blogs. This did NOT come easily for me. But I have done it all. Just in the past year.
I kept being guided, and led to doing what I knew on a soul level, was necessary for my growth and evolution. I did all of it afraid.
I was afraid to spend money (invested 7k in my business and self growth alone in the past 5 months).
I was afraid of making the wrong choice, eating the ‘wrong’ foods, and flying in an airplane.
I was afraid to ask for help, because I believed I could do it all alone.
I was afraid to piss someone off, so I made it my mission to people please to avoid that. And made myself miserable in the process.
I could go on for days about allllll of the fears that have stopped me from doing so many things in my life. I am almost sad about how I wasted so many years living in FEAR.
Something about hitting 40 this year has shifted things…
I can now see the fear for what it is. And I will not allow it to stop me, and keep me playing small in my life anymore.
Resistance is fear’s suit of armor.
Resistance rises up right before we are about to make a change, do the scary thing, take that leap. We panic, and want retreat. Fight or flight.
Living in this constant fear and anxiety was a large contributing factor to my chronically fried adrenal glands, burnout, and stress related health issues.
What is most important for our soul’s evolution is often the most difficult thing for us to do. This is where the fear and resistance rises up so strong, it is easy to retreat and shrink back into the comfy zone.
Moving though the fear is how we build courage. Courage isn’t going to appear like magic. It lies on the other side of the fear. Acting through the fear is where our greatest growth and transformation happens.
Our true freedom lies in our ability to do that which we fear the most – especially when we know it will grow us, make us better, and improve our lives. And, funny enough, this is where our fear will be the strongest.
Women Rising is about rising above the fear, and what is suffocating our soul. Let’s go!
