100 Acts of Courage
FEAR can be paralyzing. It can stop you in your tracks and shut you down. It can lead you to make irrational decisions that do not serve you. It can hold you captive and make your world seem small and impossible. However, facing your fears does not need to be a big gesture of swimming with sharks or jumping out of an airplane. Confronting fear can be as simple as saying hello to a stranger or wearing red lipstick.
In January 2014 I decided that my fears were the biggest obstacle in my life and I no longer wanted to let that keep me from being happy. So I embarked on a journey to do one thing a day that scared me for 30 days. I found that in that one month I achieved more things than I had in years simply because I said YES instead of NO. Yes to things that I was resistant to doing for one reason or another. NO was no longer an option and my world has opened up since then. I became someone who took action instead of someone who only had great ideas. This blog is the 30th thing that scared me in 30 days and the first act of courage.
Why not continue to do one thing a day that scares me? Dont you worry I will! However I felt that 100 acts of courage in one year gives me a little wiggle room to plan some powerful things. Stay tuned for my journey of transforming myself and the world around me. Thank you for reading!
