Happy New Year!!! Cue the horns and confetti! I am so grateful that you are here with me for this special day. What a blessing you are to me and I'm sure to many others in your world. I am extending my humble gratitude to you now!
On to the Spirit of the day as well as the year! I have officially declared 2019 the year of Being Fear Less! That's right ladies and gentlemen, this is your year of standing out, getting up and moving past any fears that no longer serve you.
I can't remember who said it, but fear has been described as F.alse E.vidence A.ppearing R.eal. Let's digest this for a moment. I can see many of you saying "my fear is not false! I saw my (fill-in-the-blank) go through this and I'm afraid the same thing will happen to me!" I completely understand your reasoning in this scenario, trust me I've been there. However, I want to encourage you to think past that fear for a moment, What if your life is unique and unrepeatable just as everyone else on the planet? This would mean that other people's struggles don't have to be mirrored in your life. I suggest you share compassion next time you witness a situation you don't want to experience rather than take on a fear around it. This is just one way fear can creep in, there are countless ways fear comes knocking at our door.
Sometimes we experience things ourselves and the fear of it repeating takes over. For example you speak up about what you want and you get rejected. This can turn into equating your voice with rejection so you remain silent on things that matter to you. In this situation I would encourage you to extend compassion and forgiveness to those who rejected you and take that rejection as an opportunity. An opportunity to move in the direction of your true path is given every time rejection occurs. New breath, a new day, a new year and new opportunities are ahead. Take this gift of newness by choosing to be fear less now!
I have a great tool to be released this month specifically designed to move you into being fear less and being free more! Be on the lookout for that announcement! Also, all month I will share tips surrounding the gift of being fear less. Stay tuned every Tuesday for new blogs to be released. Lastly, Stay excited for all that is coming this fear less year of 2019!
