We are all the same. We all have fears. Some big, some small. The list is endless don't you think? Spiders, being alone, heights, failure, success, public speaking. The list goes on and on. The point is we ALL deal with some fear at some point or another. Fear can often be portrayed as something bad. Something we need to overcome. And yes, very often we do. Some of my fears I am o.k. with keeping around a bit (sorry mice, I will never feel cozy around you). Other times fear can push you and make you grow (a little one I am trying to work on, riding a bike again).
This past week in Flying Lessons we had a lesson on fear and many tools were given to help realize the fears and let them go. The above pics are me letting some really pesky fears go. The fear of not being good enough ( a huge one for many of us ), the fear of who do you think you are?, the fear that I won't be a good mom/wife if I reach for my dreams, the fear of who will really want anything I have to offer anyway?.
So I jotted them down quickly ( it was a spur of the moment decision ) and released them. It felt a bit strange and freeing at the same time.
I came away from this lesson in fear with a clearer head and heart. I am sure these feelings will pop back in but I am ready to deal with them when they do. Kelly Rae gave us many more fear busters to work with. So great!
I have posted this before but I wanted to post this again because I find it inspiring. A true lesson in letting go.
