DO it afraid….

So for TONIGHT…

I am grateful for…

1. FEAR

HUH????

Yes world…

I am..

AFRAID… of…

A LOT.

Much more than I am willing to admit. And when I was about 12 or 13 years old, I conquered one of my BIGGEST fears at that time which was..check it..RIDING A ROLLER COASTER!!

Which some may find surprising, perhaps even ironic, as many folks often comment that that they think I fear-LESS.

I AM AFRAID.

Yet…I refuse..

ADAMANTLY REFUSE…

To let the fear win.

Perhaps a nod to my stubbornness or competitiveness.

So whenever the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, or I can feel that “heat” building up and my heart start to pound…

Well then I know..that is THE FEAR.

And it must NOT win.

Therefore I will do the thing that the “fear” tries to tell me I cannot do.

I will do it ANYWAY…I will

2. Stains on my shirt.

Why?? Because this is such a glorious, and subtle, reminder…that

NO.ONE.IS.PERFECT.

We All have “stains” … and perhaps we should celebrate them, instead of trying to clean them.

They DEFINE us, individualize us…

Perhaps I should not be so ashamed to be…

ME.

And here’s hoping that YOU TOO..will NEVER be ashamed to be …

YOU.

Or of stains on your shirt,

or the fear in your heart.

Because you can do it anyway…

you can….DO IT AFRAID.
