Ever have those days where your fears rise up – even if they don’t make any logical sense? I took a class about art journaling and the assignment was to journal about your fears on one side…and your reality on the other side. I think women tend to universally fear some of the same things. We fear loosing love…our health…our money…our very lives. We sometimes even fear looking in the mirror to see how our pants fit today, or fear stepping on the scale to get the same bad news day after day.
I’m done with these fears. They really don’t serve me. I don’t make forward progress with my life when I sit in a puddle of fear. Or when I anxiously fret about what “could” happen or what “they” might think. When I think about being bold, embracing my strength and the beauty within me – well it just makes me feel strong. Like I can conquer the world. Like I am solidly here and a force to be reckoned with.
So here is what I really am….I’m a damn good business woman. An emerging artist. A loving mother. A doting grandmother. A pilot with a sense of adventure that goes as far as my airplane will take me. A classy girl with a little flair and a lot of pluck who intends to live her life on her own terms.
Goodbye silly fears…. hello sweet life!
