I say “Holy Crappers” about this prompt as it cuts close to the bone. How many of us go there, you know that dark scary place where we hold our fears and REALLY look at them? Most of us don’t ask ourselves these kind of questions, but imagine how much more fulfilling our lives could be if we did.

Fear by Lachlan Cotter

These are the voices which we hear in solitude, but they grow faint and inaudible as we enter into the world. Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Is fear holding you back from living your fullest life and being truly self expressed?
Put yourself in the shoes of the you who’s already lived your dream and write out the answers to the following:

Is the insecurity you’re defending worth the dream you’ll never realize? or the love you’ll never venture? or the joy you’ll never feel?

Will the blunder matter in 10 years? Or 10 weeks? Or 10 days? Or 10 minutes?

Can you be happy being anything less than who you really are?

Now Do. The Thing. You Fear.

{… in case the answer ISN’T obvious…. NO! None of that matters, and yes we must be nothing short of our most brilliant selves}
