Growing up I was taught to go to college, get a good job and to retire with my pension. Growing up, I was taught to be strong and courageous but to “play it safe.” Meaning, don’t take too many risk because of the “what if’s.”Are you thinking what I thought for years? Why was I taught to be courageous just to “play it safe?” That NEVER made sense to me!! Learning this, I always wondered about the what if’s which made me fearful of a lot of things in my adulthood.
For years, I was fearful of change, fearful of trying something new , fearful of starting over and fearful of failure. When I finally realized what my fears were and what blessings I missed out on due to my fears, I told myself it’s time to let it go. Time to feel temporarily uncomfortable so i can get to how I’ve always dreamed of feeling which is free. Free from stress, free from people’s thoughts/opinions, free to explore life and free to be myself.
Once I worked on letting my fears go, I took and finally passed one of thee most hardest exams known to man to advance my career, I’m finally ready to leave the job that stopped serving me years ago, I’m finally doing what I ALWAYS wanted to do which is to relocate and more.
My theme for 2021, is “Fear, No Mo” (Birdman voice) lol If there is anyone out there that isn’t doing something they want to do out of fear, I know it’s easier said then done but let it go!! You never know until you try. Step out on faith, be prayerful and be intentional. Forget the naysayers! Surround yourself with positive people and people that want to see you grow!
