The one thing I truly like about this post is how Diana DOES NOT mention overcoming your fears. Facing them yes, but she acknowledges the fear remains…even in the face of courage. Yet True Courage (yes there is a future post here) will enable you to not only function, but move forward.
“Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you’re scared to death. ” ~ Earl Wilson
Have you ever been really afraid of something you were facing?
Fear can be crippling.
Fear can be paralyzing – you feel like a deer in the headlights.
Fear can grip you so tightly that it doesn’t seem feasible for you to break free.
Your chest tightens.
Your heart races.
Sweat pools at your temples.
It makes you doubt you are able to overcome.
It makes you question even the things you previously knew you were equipped to do.
The temptation may be to just let go and get swallowed up.
But here’s the good thing about fear.
Yes, I said GOOD thing!
