Feel the fear and do it anyway

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear, after that, fear has no power and it vanishes and shrinks – You are Free”

Jim Morrison

M y entire life I lived in fear. The fear of judgement, not being enough or worthy, trust me the list goes on. Our insecurities keep us playing small and that’s exactly what your ego wants us to do. ” It’s comfy here, why push yourself, your good here in this small box” A course in Miracles teaches us how crafty and cunning the ego can be. I became so accustomed to my fear it ruled my life. Panic attack, ok no big deal, oh another anxiety attack, where have you been all day? I got so sick, literally physically, emotionally, mentally and most importantly Spiritually. I had enough, I was ready to face my fears and do i t anyway. You see I was no ordinary fearful person, I was also an addict with a princess complex..go figure! I was madder than a box of frogs and I could not take it anymore.

Getting myself clean was like freeing myself from the bondage of fear I had built up over the years. I had found my purpose in life. I am clean and sober today and when fear creeps up I laugh in its face and say “Yippy Kie Aae Mother f***er, bring it on” Thanks to my educated skills and meditation and overall strength, long gone are those fearful nights. I love and live in the NOW, no past, no future, right here and now is where the magic happens and I could not be happier.

So now I ask you, what would you do if you had no fear? Feel free to drop me your email address so I can keep you up to date with my shenanigans. Yes, I’m Irish just in case you were wondering!!

I have many strings to my bow and it allows me to delve deeper into all aspects of my life. I am a Reiki healer, NLP practitioner & Life coach. I never ever thought that I was creative but it seems that the creator of all that is has proven me wrong. Writing is the love of my life. The ability to unleash my creativity through words and of course using My voice as a podcast host. I am an activist for all things related to Mental Health. Writing and speaking give me the platform to speak on taboo subjects. It seems I do have creativity coasting through my veins afterall.
