I am so afraid so often. I am afraid of my husband being done with me and my faith transition. I am afraid of my family rejecting me. I am afraid of the ward making me a project. I am afraid of being wrong and doing all this for nothing. I am afraid of making changes and how they will impact my family, especially my kids. So much fear.
I am also committed to my integrity, brave and willing. I am willing to do what I think is right and best for me. I am courageous and willing to make changes and have difficult conversations. I am wiling to still look others in the eye and be a little different from what most would expect or want from me. I am willing to wear clothes that feel good on my body even if others do not approve. I am willing to tell my kids that church is good and that no church is good. I am wiling to let my husband believe what he wants and not make it mean he is wrong or I am wrong or that something is wrong with our marriage.
I am both afraid and brave at the same time. I guess that makes me human.
I can’t make the fear go away it may always be there (remember the human part), but I can keep my life moving forward with willingness and bravery.
Do you want to learn how to be afraid and still willing? Coaching is all about accepting that there is fear and still making the decisions, still showing up out of love, courage and willingness.
Let me teach you how. Trying to make the fear go away is like taking away your humanness. Good luck. Figuring out how to have a great life and experience fear – that is much more manageable.
