This interview explores facing fears in a unique way! Stay tuned for it!
FEARRRR AHHHH! AHHHHHH!!! Oh, fear, you sneaky, crafty little thing you. Lately I've been thinking about, dealing with and overcoming some fears and it's quite the roller coaster ride but SO very worth every second of the work. I'll keep this post simple and to the point - it's always worth it to push yourself past your fears. Always. First you obviously need to recognize when certain emotions are drumming up for you, if they are fear-based or not and then comes the work of staying on your A+ game mentally and basically slapping ALL fear-based thoughts upside the head the instant they try to sneak into your brain and play games with you; because that's all they do - they'll try to trick you into believing that they are real or necessary. But there is also an acceptance to all of this because it is natural and is a part of life and in an odd, cool sort of way, when you are working through fears and you do push to the other side, there's an immense feeling of accomplishment and total exhilaration that adds to the magic in your soul and gives you a surging of a new life force, a new energy, that will help you continue forward. And forward movement is always a beautiful thing :)
When you are putting in the work to become your best self and overcome any fears and push past boundaries you have to be 100% committed and determined to rise up and not let fear hold you back or paralyze you. You have to know that there may be an internal battle mentally and that you have to do all you can to remain loving and accepting of yourself, gently talk to your fears and say "I hear you, I see you, I feel you and I understand that you're here," take a nice, deep breathe and then steadfastly think a positive thought that takes your brain in the opposite direction than your fear wants it to. I PROMISE you - you do the work and you will come out on the other side of fear!! Promise.
To make your journey through fear and to the other side smoother, below are some of my favorite quotes and mantras that have helped keep my mind in check and I hope there's at least one that resonates with you and helps you shake off those pesky little fears. <3
Team courage and confidence, all the way!!
