friday’s thoughts {facing your fears}…

i just had to pop in today and say a few words {of my own} about the importance of facing your fears…

at 4pm yesterday my new work project was unveiled… 24 hours later, i had to present my new project ideas to the head designer… what the!?!

i truly had not so much as a skerrick of an inkling as to what the project was really about, nevermind having had time to actually formulate any ideas about it of my own!

today i sooooo longed to take the easy route out and walk at least a half dozen times {and that was just before lunch}… i didn’t even have to feign illness, i was sick… sick from all the stomach churning, sweat inducing angst which was building up inside with each passing minute… with my colleagues bantering about my “make or break” moment, i began to duly regret having asked to take on more…

i swear, the pace at which the adreneline was pulsating around my body was the fastest any part of my being has moved in some years…

but you know what… i hung on…

i rode it out {albeit on a wave of perspiration}…

was i brilliant? heck no… did i take the design world by storm? no ma’am…

but i faced my fears… and having come out the other side of today i can say this: facing your fears is not only the greatest adreneline rush you will EVER feel, but it ultimately makes you stronger, better & more resilient {do i sound like tony robbins yet?}…

i  truly know of no better way to grow as a person than to fear something, look it in the eye, & take it on regardless…

do this once, and you feel invincible… do it every day, & you truly are!
