Seems to me that once we get a little practice doing stuff that feels scary, it gets easier!
You see there’s really nothing to be afraid of, most of the time fear isn't a good reason to wait or stop. Often, a choice only feels scary for a short time and then it looks like an amazing idea!
Here’s a short list of decisions that looked scary to me in the moment...
- Start a PhD in my 40s.
- Attend graduate school at Stanford for a semester leaving a husband and 14 year old daughter in Kansas. (Next time we meet, ask me about the room I rented).
- Give away 80% of my belongings, sell the house in the suburbs and move to a 715 sq. ft. condo in the city.
- Leave my career in educational coaching and research to start Your Peaceful Space
Why am I sharing these examples?? Because this amazing life is full of moments when we can choose to move forward inspite of our fearful thinking! This, my friends is how we make our dreams come true, and it's available to you.
What dreams do you carry....but too afraid to set into motion?
Float this statement in your mind, "I carry a dream that..." then just let the words and images come to you, see what arrises. I would LOVE to hear what you notice!
