A few months ago, I decided to take the chance to do something that I have been wanting to do for so long. That was to create this blog and put myself "OUT THERE". It isn't easy to be in the public eye and to be extremely honest it took me about 3 years to build the courage to do so. I share this with you guys because I don't want any of you to ever feel ashamed for being afraid. It is a natural born instinct to be afraid of the unknown. Fear has such negative connotations attached to it that we become scared to admit that it is present. It is perfectly normal to be afraid. In order to face fears head on we must acknowledge their presence. Fear is a choice and though we seek to avoid it , it is inevitable and challenging fear is what creates better versions of ourself.
The first day I released this blog , words cannot truly explain how nervous I was. I had been combating this fear for so long and during the moment of truth my stomach was in knots! It's CRAZY how our own mind can be against us at the time when we need it the most. My mind was telling me the worst of the worst. "what if there are a million typos, what if it's not good enough, what if everyone hates it", I was literally biting my nails seconds after it went live. The more I tackled this fear by pushing myself to overcome it, the more I realized, fear is really just a fake thought of the future which we implant in our brains and we can either live dormant with it or tackle it head on pushing it out of our minds.
Be conscious of your fears and moments when your mind creates halucinations of failure. Accepting your truths is always the first step towards working on them. For instance, I could of easily discontinued all my blogging plans and lived content within my fear bubble, but that would never truly make me happy nor would I have grown mentally with that outcome.
So please, live out your dreams, make every moment count. Don't waste your lives dreaming without action because of fear. I promise you that every thing on the other side is not as bad as it seems from a distance.
I advise that you take every new day by the horns and always remember what doesn't kill WILL make you stronger. You just have to be willing to embrace the fears and face them head on!
