Talk With Your Hands


Ask yourself something for me - What are you afraid of?


What holds you back from doing all you could do, or saying all you could say? What keeps you awake at night? What gives you that empty feeling in the pit of your stomach whenever you think about it? What makes your hair stand on end? 


Just think about that for a second.


Okay, I’ll start off by letting you know that I am afraid of a LOT of things (I’ll spare you the insanely long list, or else we’d be here all day). I don’t think I’d be human if I wasn’t afraid of anything, do you?

My point is, just stop.


What am I saying? Well,…fear will eat.you.alive. Trust me, I know.
Now if you’re afraid of spiders, or clowns….well, that’s one thing. I know those things are very traumatizing and hard to get over. But again, what I’m saying(or trying to) is this: If your fear is something along the lines of…being afraid to let people into your life, or talking to strangers, or trying something new, or moving out of your comfort zone, or…I could go on forever. But do you get what I’m trying to say here? Do you see my pattern with all of that?
If you are afraid of something that is literally affecting your every day life, either in a dramatic way or in a back of your head sort of way, get rid of it.

I am telling you, it isn’t worth it. Talk with someone. Take steps towards overcoming.  
Because the truth is, you will never be able to run from it. This world is FULL of the things we are afraid of, and they will only keep bumping into us if we are frantically trying to run the other way.
So face your fears. If we stand up against these things as they are chasing us, they will either a) become something we actually start to ENJOY, or b) do a spin and head the other way. Wouldn’t that be something?


Talk with me. Let me know if you think I’m full of something or if you agree in any way. 
Tell me your fears and I’ll tell you mine. This is a step of overcoming: admitting.
