Walk Through Fear

Her choices were to stay the same or walk through her fear and become the woman she was meant to be. She decided to start walking. – Queenisms™

We’ve been humming the old Nancy Sinatra song all day. “These boots are made for walking. . .” We never plan to have a theme for the week, but we sure seem to fall into that pattern, don’t we? This week we’re talking about staying the same, even when you’re miserable. If you hit yourself on the head with a hammer and lament that your head aches all day long, a good friend might point out that if you stop hitting yourself in the head with a hammer, you’ll feel better. But with stuff like relationships, jobs, social environment or personal goals, it’s harder for people to see the hammer. But you can see it.  Stop what you’re doing right now and tell us the first thing that comes to mind when you ask yourself this question. What is giving me the most stress in my life, right now? Or, rephrased, what is stopping me from being happy?

If you hit yourself in the head with a hammer until your head hurts, you don’t need a good friend to tell you that stopping will stop the pain. But with the emotional blows we deal ourselves, it’s harder for friends to be our bell weather. We must be that for ourselves and in order to do so, we have not be afraid to ask ourselves these questions. And, we have to dare to answer them honestly. Walk through the fear.
