Guess what day it is?!
That's right, its FEARLESS FRIDAY.
This week, I want to challenge you to do something fearless. I'm serious. I want you to promise me that you will do something that scares the crap out of you. I don't care what it is. Just make sure it's kick-ass.
I'll go first: my fearless act for the week is... I am starting to write a book. OMG, there's my second fearless act; saying it out loud publicly. (I may regret that later). Anyway, I have been telling myself for as long as I can remember that I would write a book someday. Well, I finally realized that if I don't take action, then "someday" may never come. This week I said enough is enough. I'm gonna DO it. So, every day this week, I have gotten up an hour earlier, and I have written. Sort of. The first day, I mostly stared into space (a mixture of exhaustion and overwhelm, I'm sure). But then on the second day, I started writing. I wrote about some stuff that is very deep and emotional for me, and I cried my eyes out most of the morning. Then the next day, I realized that I had not saved the majority of what I had written the previous day. Bummer. This is not exactly how I had expected writing a book to go, but hey, nobody is perfect. At least I am trying. And I'm FACING MY FEARS. That's the real accomplishment, regardless of the outcome.
Now it's your turn. What will you do? Feel free to leave a comment or write me and let me know how it goes, I'd love to hear from you!
Till next time,
