Fear is a funny little word with a huge impact.  Merriam-Webster has two definitions, a noun and verb.  The intransitive verb definition is “to be afraid or apprehensive”.  I like to think fear is also stifling, that it freezes your thoughts and actions in a vegetative state.

And for years that’s exactly where I was.  Mind you, I am and was quite productive in a lot of things.  But the one thing I am most passionate about, being an author, fear is quite real.  Ponder that for a minute.  Was it my fear that I couldn’t finish a novel? Or maybe I put too much thought into would people like it or relate to it?  Maybe my fear of failure, that I would publish and nobody would read it.

My friends tell me that I am the great optimist.  I see the glass half full.  I see horizons when the shore and the playing fields are the most bleakest.  I have faith and belief in a power much bigger and stronger than I.  So why should I fear this?

I’m taking a deep breathe and pulling up my breeches.  Diving into the unknown, but I’m a quick study.  My excited outweighs my fear.  And no matter what I’m pressing forward.

Bye fear!! It’s my time to rise.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks for leaving a comment
