Fear Is Not An Option


There is probably nothing we do in life that does not involve some degree of risk or chance.

I could slip down getting off the couch going to the fridge and break my leg. I choose to go anyway. I determine in my mind the tea I want in my kitchen outweighs those risks and I go ahead and “Just Do It“!

There are so many times in life where we need to just put on our big girl panties (no thongs) or our adult underwear and decide to just get it done.

Did you know it scared the hell out of me to let my 15-yr-old drive my car? It probably scared the hell out of my mother when she taught me to drive too.

My knees shook and my hands trembled the first time I had to speak in front of people, and the second time, and the third time, until it didn’t anymore.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when I hear people talk about fear from everyday activities. Guess what? You are not special. You are not unique. See  The “You Are Special Disclaimer”.

Everyone has these same fears, but we feel like we have no choice. We do it anyway. We don’t have other options, because we are ordinary.

Our common sense has won the battle over our neuroses and we adult again today because we are adults.
