Fear is boring, because fear only ever has one thing to say to us, and that thing is: "STOP" – Elizabeth Gilbert This topic has presented itself to me in the universe over and over again lately so I figured it's time to address it.

When was the last time you did something that scared you? And I don’t mean an artificial scare like watching a horror movie that made you sleep with the lights on for a night or two. I mean something that truly challenged and changed you.

The last terrifying thing I did was hit “Publish” on this post.

And I fight that fear every time I have something to write here or share with you.

“What if no one cares?” “What if this makes me look stupid?” “How long until people realize I am so far from perfect?”

Or the biggest one…

“What if I fail?”

I’ve wanted to start this page for over a year, but the fear of failing made me stop before I even tried.

As a second grader I SO badly wanted to play baseball, but one of the boys said I would have to wear the whole uniform including a cup {what?!} and then I was afraid I would look ridiculous as the only girl on the team.

That was the first time I remember letting fear stop me from doing something I was otherwise excited about. Since then I’m sure there have been hundreds. But that ends now. I don't want to miss out on any other moments because I'm too afraid. How boring is that?!

So these are my questions for you today… what are you afraid of? What were you excited about, but were too afraid to do? Do you want to go to your first BODYPUMP class? Do you want to run a marathon? Do you want to leave a completely toxic job and find your passion?

Are you going to let fear bully you for one more day or are you going to kick that bastard as hard as you can right in the teeth, Walter White style?

I thought so...
