Fear.

Fear is a barrier that keeps us in our comfort zones. It is the obstacle that we believe keeps us “safe.” A few months ago, I watched a video (The Other Side of Fear- YouTube) that speaks about how we miss out on so many of life’s greatest opportunities, because these opportunities live outside of our comfort zone, they live on the other side of FEAR.

This year, I promised myself that I would grow, learn, explore, and ultimately become vulnerable to all of life’s opportunities. Fear tends to hold me back most of the time and I am tired of letting my fear of things to control my life. So…this weekend I will use fear as a tool to move forward. This weekend I am going skydiving! I have always been terrified of heights, but this year I have had many falls, and if I have learned anything it’s that I am damn good at getting back up. 15073295_1817572445155804_7978980770579710190_n

In closing, I encourage you all to think about what your fearful of. Is it holding you back from reaching your full potential? If so, what can you do about it? Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop and look fear in the face.”

Stay tuned!

p.s. Thanks to my best friend (who also has a fear of heights) who will be joining. When you tell your friend that you want to go skydiving and her response is “Where do I sign up and when are we going?” That’s real. #weSlay15073372_1817490665163982_6770175986961739829_n
