Doing scary things is scary

Last Friday I was on a conference call with two of my older brothers, they were hounding me about the fact that I never take risks, that I have been playing it too safe in all aspects of my life.  They are so right and I am so tired of being shackled down by the fear of trying and failing.  I decided that I am going to really start breaking down the walls... I know everyone has them, there are fears that hold everyone back from becoming something greater and I own many of them and unfortunately keep them close.


I made a list two nights ago of all the things that scare me and for the next two weeks I will attempting to walking through them ( literally for one of them...wearing high heal shoes all day long for no reason... fear of being feminine).
I will post them as I go,  also another fear (being honestly open... I like to keep things inside where they are safe).

Last night I wrote and it was nice.

Good for you Jess!

I don't think I could wear high heals for a day, no way. But let me know how it goes!

This is exciting!!! I need to do the same thing with my fear of failure in my one big ambition--writing a novel. Can't wait to see what you post!
