The meaning of fearless is “lacking fear” it’s an interesting word, it sounds like you are powerful and can do anything without fear. I’m questioning how I feel about this word. The reason that I say this is that I believe that we are now living in a world of comparison. Social media as well as other forms of media lead us to believe that we need to be fearless to follow our dreams or to be successful. To do all the things we want to do that can be scary to some people. I believe that there is no such thing as being completely fearless, I feel like the word fearless can possibly make you feel less than, that if you are afraid it’s not ok. But it is ok to feel afraid, let yourself feel it. Instead of allowing ourselves to feel fear we are creating anxiety in ourselves because we are overthinking things and we are pressuring ourselves to be fearless.
“Courage is being scared to death…and saddling up anyway” John Wayne
But the word courage, I love this word! Courage to me, means it’s ok for you to be afraid but you do it anyway. There is a reason we were made with fear within ourselves. We need to think about our actions before we move forward for a reason. It’s to help keep us safe or others safe depending on the situation. But we need to find balance between overthinking and actual movement. Set a goal, create a plan and move forward, even when you are afraid.
“Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action” Walter Inglis Anderson
Once you have a plan, even the beginnings of a plan you need to muster up that courage and move forward. You don’t need to go from point A to Z in a day. It is ok to take baby steps. Do one thing each day, whether it is big or small to get you to where you want to be. Start with research and let it grow from there.
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal” Bruce Lee
I have been thinking about creating a blog for a few years but, have been a little scared as well as un-sure of what I want to say. But in the last year I have been experiencing life in a way that has made me feel that it is time to move forward. I can honestly say, I have absolutely no idea what I am doing, but I feel very strongly that I am supposed to do this. I know in my heart it is the right thing for me to do. I have a true desire to help people gain confidence in themselves, simplify life and move forward with their goals. So, I have been taking baby steps myself for the last few months to get me where I am today, which is the beginning of this blog. It is the start of something that I am not sure where it will take us, but I am excited! I will continue to do one thing each day to get to the next step of life and where it is taking me. My goal is to post once a week, I hope you will join me on this journey.
