Are you afraid to step out and do your thing? Maybe your a little uneasy about experimenting with a hair style, life style change or new creative project or techinque. I don't know, maybe it's a relationship or job. It's enough to drive you crazy I know!! Fear is that uncomfortable feeling that we have when stepping out to do something new or making a change. Fear. Fasle. Evidence. Appearing. Real.

We sometimes seek the approval of others and somemetimes to our own detriment. I am a people pleaser by nature. It brings some kind of werid comfort to know that I have made someone else happy even when I am uncomfortable. Now dat ain't right! I recall a time when I wanted to travel and go to other counties and I still do, and I shared it with some family members and some friends and I was met with a very negative and fearful responses. Needless to say, I have never left America! "What if you go and get stuck in another country? What if they don't like Americans? What if you don't like it? What if, What if, What if?!?! Then you will have spent a whole lotta money on a trip that you didn't need to take!" Sadly, I let others into my head and let their fears over take my desire to do something exciting and different. I let fear take over.

Well it's a new day! YIPPPPPPPEEEE!! I am letting fear go. Fear serves a purpose. It's there to keep us safe. The problem is when we don't know how to let it go so that we can do what is in our hearts to do and move forward. So, I am finally going to France for my birthday with my family and I am saying what I need to say when I need to say it. I am learning that I have to honor myself before I honor others and I encourage you to do the same.

I let fear go so that I can grow and then GO out into the world and experience life without worrying about who is gonna feel some kinda way or who will have something negative to say cause I don't have to share it with them. It's time to spread my wings and fly! I hope you get to do the same!
