How I face my FEAR!
( 2-minute read )

If you would’ve told me 6 months ago that I would be engaging and talking with complete strangers, I would have laughed at you. Actually, I probably would’ve pointed and laughed at you! 

I fear people I don’t know. I dread talking with them and starting the conversation! AGH!

Don’t get me wrong. I love people in a general sense. But, I loved my comfort zone much more. I would’ve much rather hang out with the people I already knew than go out of my way to meet new people.

I’m at a point in my life where that just isn’t good enough anymore. I have goals and my fear was getting in my way. I was stuck in my mediocre life and I wanted better, I wanted more. I knew in order to reach my goal I had to break out of my comfort zone. Scary!

What did I do to change this? Everything I did……..
I did it scared.

It wasn’t easy. I didn’t like it. But no matter what I felt, no matter what I thought to myself, I DID IT ANYWAY. I did it SCARED.

I want my dreams and goals more than I want my fear. I want my children to see me face my fears and conquer them. Simple? No. Doable? Hell yes!

I’m growing more confident each day. I feel more comfortable in my own skin now than I ever have in my life. I can’t wait to see what the future brings!

What are your fears? What do you think will be on the other side of your fear? Comment below how you push yourself outside your comfort zone. I would love to learn new ways to do it!
