My objective in 2016 is to dance with my fear - to step into it rather than being paralyzed by it; to THINK BIG even when my fear surfaces, then to join my fear and create a beautiful spiral, rising up and expanding, joining forces in the dance of CREATION.
Let me tell you how this came about:
I was hanging out on the phone with my old friend, Janet. I knew her from years ago when I was living on an island in the Caribbean: what a fantastic time of enthusiasm, adventure, and light-hearted pleasure! As I was updating her on my life ( I’ve had some turbulent times in the past few years), she dared to suggested that I wasn’t thinking big enough. “What happened to the Denise that thought outside of the box – the risk taker?” What could I say? What HAD happened to that person? When had I started to approach life in such a tentative manner? She and I started brain storming about possibilities. Soon I was feeling bold and eager to start creating the big projects we were playing with. Yes! I can do this!
The next morning I woke up and fear was there to greet me!
How do you handle your fear? Do you allow it to block your way, undermine your creativity, put your BIG, juicy life on hold? Or do you dance with it? We always have a choice. Sometimes we can’t see it because of our restrictive thinking patterns, but it’s always there. Sometimes it seems too risky. Yet, there are those times when you KNOW that if you want your life to grow beyond mediocrity, you need to step it up.
