Fear is NOT your enemy

We're experiencing a 'Noreaster here in New Brunswick's Atlantic coast today. The wind was so strong it blew my window open and came inside my bedroom, causing me to wake up at 5:00 am.

I couldn't get back to sleep because today is the day for writing my information page for my new course, Bust Out of Your Fear Box!.

I've found every excuse to avoid it, but the deadline looms if I'm ever going to give this bird its wings.

So, I sat down and wrote.

That's the thing about Fear... the thought of doing whatever we have to do is, in my experience, far worse than the doing of it. The writing is flowing smoothly and I am once again excited about this program and once again feeling like I GOT THIS!

Of course, I could kick myself in the ass for being such a wuss for feeling my Fear, but I'm done with beating myself up about it and instead I'm giving myself the credit I deserve for taking baby steps each day until I was ready for this. I haven't been sitting twiddling my thumbs, I've been laying the foundation by working through my own fears about launching a new course.

And my friends, it feels freaking good! So good, I had to release this extra blog to tell you!
