We all have fears right? Heights, Clowns, Spiders, roller coasters you name it someone's probably scared of it. But those kinds of fears aren't what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the fear of taking risks and moving forward. I'm talking about the fear of trying new things and meeting new people. I'm talking about the fear of moving on from things that hurt you. Those kinds of fears. Do you have those? I'm sure we've all had them at some point. I know I have. I'd love to tell you that I don't have any fears. I'd love to tell you that I'm afraid of nothing, I'd love to tell you that I'm perfectly content with life. But alas I'm not. I have fears just like everyone else. I have concerns about life just like you do. I'm no better or worse then anyone else. In fact I'd like to share some of my fears with you right now. I have fears surrounding dating again, and roller coasters, and death. I have many other fears in those categories but that's about as far as I'm willing to go here. But in this moment I'd like to pose a question to you. What if your fear is the thing you want the most? What if you have to face your fear in order to achieve peace in life? What if the thing your scared of is what you never knew you always needed in life?

Have you ever thought of it that way? Have you always wondered what would happen if you did face your fears? What would happen if you acheived the thing you were most scared of? How would you feel? Would you feel good? Would you feel peace? Would you be okay? Would you know that it all happened for a reason and that you had to face your fears to become stronger? Would you know that you had to learn some lessons during the process of facing your fears? Would you know that you had to do the scary thing in order to get to the happier side of life? Would you know that it all happened the way it did for your highest good? Would you know that you were being protected the whole way through? How would that make you feel? Good, bad, weird?

Go to do the scary thing! It might be the best thing for you. Move to the new city where you know absolutley nobody, get the job that you feel is out of your league, run the marathon, go on the backpacking trip, go solo traveling to a new country. whatever it is face your fears. You'll be stronger for it. Why? Because that experience will teach you that you can get through much more then you think. It will teach you that you can do it all alone. It will teach you that you don't need to depend on someone else to be there for you. I'm not saying you shouldn't have people there for you. But the point I'm trying to make is that you wouldn't necessarily have to need someone there with you. It will teach you that you are alot stronger mentally and emotionally and physically then you thought possible. It will teach you that you are the bada** you were always meant to be. It will teach you that you are the strongest person you know and you can in fact get through it all no matter what. It will teach you probably the most important lesson that you'll ever learn in your lifetime Self love.
