Fear: Standing between you and what you want.
What you are capable of.
What you enjoy doing.
Who you want to be with.
What you want to say.
Fear of being judged.
Fear of failing.
Fear of disappointing others.
Fear of standing up for yourself so you can feed your family.
Fear of crying or showing emotions.
Fear of being labeled, misunderstood, misguided, misinformed.
Fear of ignorance, fear of threatening them with intelligence or nonconforming to stereotypes.
Fear of experiences: did I see too much, or not enough?
Though I own my own business and live in the freest country on earth, I still have fear from time to time.
Because at the end of the day, I’m a person.
But I get up, and go-scared or not -and I do what I need to do to honor myself, my voice and my dreams.
What’s your fear? Can you push through it?
