#Real Talk: Today I had a sudden insight into a sub-conscious anchor which has been holding me back. Fear: one word, four letters, one syllable. How can this small spark of the English language be affecting me so much? Self-doubt, lack of confidence, worrying about events that may not even happen.
It took a conversation with my partner to snap me back to reality; to remind me of the dreams and plans we have been working towards. Suddenly I felt like crap. Holy dooley, the realisation to me, was that I was not pulling my weight, I was not meeting my own expectations but also that of my other half.
A switch was flipped inside me. Let’s get real: I do not care what other’s think of me, except one person. The one person who encourages me to try the crazy ideas my creative brain comes up with, the one human who pushes me to be a better version of myself, the patient and kind man who motivates me to step outside my comfort zone.
My affirmation, when fear starts shadowing me, will be: inhale courage, exhale fear. When I feel the fear creeping sneakily into my mindset I will call upon this affirmation and with my breath, fear will be physically exhaled from my body, my lungs and heart. I will make room for courage.
Courage to keep moving forward and work towards the life I want for myself and my tribe; to take one step at a time and to complete each action fully without the worry of fear taking a peek at me, trying to remind me that fear is just around the corner. I will embrace the power of courage.
Chose courage too.
