"Everything you want is on the other side of fear." - unknown
So, I made a bold move today and if you would have told me I would make this move last year, I would have laughed in your face.
I reached out to a major influencer and mentor of my husband and I, to see if he (or anyone he knew) had any job openings for a writer.
I felt a lot of courage writing the message to him, but when it was time to press send, I almost chickened out! I felt so vulnerable and afraid of putting myself out there like that.
But I took a chance on my dreams. No matter how uncomfortable it felt, I pressed "send" and walked away!
What now? Well, I can sit around and worry about it, or I can keep moving forward on my dreams!
Today, even if the outcome doesn't turn out like I hope, I still overcame fear and that is a win for me!
When I started this blog, I was so afraid that it took me 20 minutes just to hit publish on my first post!
Starting this blog was an enormous step out of my comfort zone, but I had big dreams!
I want to speak into the lives of others who have been searching for truth, who need peace in their lives and to be reminded that they are loved and never alone.
I want to inspire people and be an influence for change and growth!
This blog started out uncomfortable and awkward, but has become one of the greatest joy's of my life!
I may not know who is reading the words from my heart, but I know that someone will find what they're looking for at the right time!
My encouragement for you today is to do something you're afraid of every day!
The feeling of actually doing something that scares you shitless is so invigorating!
Take that risk! Jump in with both feet! Step out on that limb! Regardless of the outcome, you will have grown as a person and soon you will be amazed at the opportunities that come knocking at your door!
No matter what the outcome will be from today's little adventure, I will keep jumping in with both feet and see my dreams through! Because my dreams are worth the risk and so are yours!
Remember, you don't have courage... you ARE courageous!
As always, I'm sending you love and hugs!
